ESS-DIVE Postdoctoral Fellow
Berkeley Lab’s Earth and Environmental Sciences Area (EESA) has an opening for a Postdoctoral Fellow to join the Environmental Systems Science Data Infrastructure for a Virtual Ecosystem (ESS-DIVE) project. ESS-DIVE is a DOE data repository that stores diverse datasets from terrestrial and subsurface ecosystem research projects.
The postdoc will join the ESS-DIVE research and development team working on community engagement, data standards and building tools for data use.
What You Will Do:
- Research and provide recommendations on community standards for environmental data.
- Work with the community to adopt existing standards or define new standards as needed.
- Build file parsers, quality checkers and other tools to enable advanced search, integration and visualization of data submitted in standardized formats.
- Collaborate extensively with the DOE Environmental Systems Science (ESS) research community.
We are seeking candidates with prior experience in data synthesis or analysis, and strong coding skills.
