Contribute as a scientific officer to the development of the sustained ocean observing system for climate and operational services.
The Global Ocean Observing System (GOOS), Global Climate Observing System (GCOS), and World Climate Research Programme (WCRP) are looking for a scientific officer for their shared panel, the Ocean Observations Panel for Physics and Climate (OOPC).
You will support a group of experts in their work developing recommendations for sustained global ocean observing, including integrated design of ocean observations balancing feasibility and impact, and evaluating the ocean observing system for gaps, developing recommended evolutions.
The panel builds on ocean observing community plans and aspirations, exemplified in the OceanObs’19 Community White Papers, and engages a strategic vision of its sponsors for a global ocean observing system and Earth system approach delivering the essential information needed for sustainable development, safety, wellbeing, and prosperity.
You should have a master’s degree or equivalent in oceanography, meteorology, climatology, or related field; and eight years of combined national and international progressively responsible experience in planning, managing, and coordinating ocean observing activities. The post is based at the WMO in Geneva, Switzerland.
