Scientific Programmer Position in Visualization of Meteorological 
Simulation and Observation Data

Technical University of Munich, Computer Graphics and Visualization Group


We are seeking a scientific programmer to work with us on the 
next-generation 3D meteorological ensemble visualization software 
"Met.3D". The software is available open-source at 
https://bitbucket.org/wxmetvis/met.3d and is used by an increasing 
number of meteorological research groups, including the collaborative 
research centre "Waves to Weather" 

Your task will be to implement major enhancements to the software's 
graphics algorithms, data processing algorithms and user interface. 
You'll be part of a growing working group that develops novel 
visualization techniques to improve the way meteorologists visually 
analyse their data, in particular ensemble simulation data.

To apply, you should have a university degree (BSc/MSc) in computer 
science, meteorology, or a related field. Profound knowledge of C++ 
programming is required, ideally you also have experience in GPU-based 
real-time computer graphics with OpenGL. Knowledge of software 
development with Qt under Linux and Windows will be advantageous.

The position will be located at the Chair for Computer Graphics and 
Visualization at the Technical University of Munich, Germany (Head: 
Prof. Dr. Ruediger Westermann).

The position is full-time and paid according to the German public 
service pay scale, up to TV-L E13 depending on your qualification. It is 
initially limited to 12 months. If you are interested, there may be a 
possibility to continue with a PhD project in meteorological 
visualization after the first 12 months; other options may be available 
as well.
