We are looking for a Seasonal Worker to develop an aerosol model.
Interested in a summer job in research and development? Would you like to test your skills with atmospheric simulation models and work on interesting scientific and technical tasks? Do you want to learn more about how atmospheric models work and participate in their development?
The Atmospheric Modelling Group of the Finnish Meteorological Institute is looking for a university of applied sciences or higher education student for a summer job at the Atmospheric Research Centre of Eastern Finland in Kuopio. The work involves developing a model that can simulate the properties of aerosols in the atmosphere. The current model version is computationally heavy, so the aim is to reduce the computational cost by modifying the model to utilize GPU computing. The seasonal trainee's task is to develop the model's code so that it works optimally on the GPU cores of supercomputing platforms. More information about the group's activities can be found here:
