The Maxwell Lab and the Integrated GroundWater Modeling Center (IGWMC) is assembling a team of research software engineers, Hydrologists and Machine learning experts to build a next generation hydrologic forecasting platform called HydroGEN (https://vimeo.com/568645775). HydroGEN is a web-based machine learning (ML) platform to generate custom hydrologic scenarios on demand. Without any prior modeling experience, users will be able to directly manipulate state-of-the-art tools to explore the risks of future events that matter to them. Our platform builds off the first and only physics-based high-resolution groundwater surface water model in the US. This gives us a unique ability to train ML models that can capture the potential for extreme events in changing systems. Water is the driving force behind extreme events like floods, droughts and wildfires costing the US billions of dollars every year. Our goal is to build tools that put the best science directly in the hands of decision makers and planners. Helping them better prepare for and manage future extreme events.
We are seeking talented Research Software Engineers (RSEs) to join our team and help develop the HydroGEN platform. This position will be appointed through the High Meadows Environmental Institute at Princeton University and will collaborate with team members from participating institutions (Cyverse, University of Arizona, Princeton University and ViQi) to support and extend a high profile, open source multi-cloud orchestration software. We seek highly-motivated individuals with an appetite to learn about new technologies, ability to perform in team environments, flexible attitude, attention to detail, and excellent communication skills.
This is a 2 year term position with possibility of renewal based on continued funding and performance.
