University of Hawaii

Hawaii, USA

The Currents group at the University of Hawaii serves the US oceanographic research community by providing software and advice for ocean current measurements, primarily using shipboard acoustic Doppler current profilers. We are looking for someone who enjoys working in Python on Open Source software, visualizing ocean current structures, contributing to the nation’s oceanographic research enterprise, and interacting with technicians and scientists throughout the country.

We will be looking for two people. These positions are located at the University of Hawaii, in Honolulu. Both new hires will become familiar with our operations, including supporting the UHDAS shipboard ADCP installations at sea, installing software to build up the computers used, post-processing UHDAS data, answering questions from the larger shipboard ADCP community, and to varying degrees, the software we use to do all this.

  • “CIMAR Oceanographic Data Programmer/Analyst” This position will be more heavily engaged in supporting and developing the various software we use. Some of it is in C, but most of it is in Python, leveraging various Open Source libraries.
