New Research Collaboration Network

The NSF is funding a new Research Collaboration Network that is highly relevant for the Climate Informatics community.
Title: EarthCube RCN IS-GEO: Intelligent Systems Research to Support Geosciences
PI: Suzanne Pierce, UTexas at Austin
The RCN already has over 30 members, many from the CI community, namely all the participants of last year's IS-GEO workshop.

Information on the opportunities of this new RCN for the climate informatics community will be available soon on the official IS-GEO website:

Hackathon at CI 2016

The CI2016 Hackathon will be held on September 21st, prior to the start of the workshop. We encourage all workshop participants to attend the Hackathon. The format will be similar to the CI2015 Hackathon.

Grand Challenges - World Climate Research Programme

The World Climate Research Programme maintains a list of Grand Challenges in the area of climate science, with excellent explanations, references, etc.
Check it out for yourself:
We hope this list might inspire new research, e.g. for researchers in the data sciences to work with climate scientists to try out some data-driven approaches.
If one of the topics excites you, but you can't find a collaborator to work with, contact us. We might be able to help.

Faculty Position - applied atmospheric science and employing computational, geospatial, or modeling approaches

The Department of Environmental Science in the College of Arts & Sciences at American University in Washington DC invites applications for a full-time, tenure-line position at the rank of Assistant, Associate or Full Professor beginning August 1, 2017.

We are particularly interested in those working in applied atmospheric science and employing computational, geospatial, or modeling approaches. Candidates must possess their Ph.D. at the time of application and those with active external funding will be the most competitive.

Student and Postdoc Fellowships at Los Alamos National Laboratory

The Center for Space and Earth Science (CSES) at Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) annually solicits proposals for Student and Postdoc Fellowships in the disciplines of geoscience, climate, planetary physics and astrophysics. LANL hosts Student Fellows for 3 months/year for 1 - 3 years. See the attached call, relevant sections are 3.4 Climate Science and 4.1 Student Fellow.​ Note that proposals must include a participating lead Los Alamos National Laboratory scientist who submits the proposal and will be formally responsible for all communications with the CSES office.

Intelligent and Information Systems for Geosciences - Workshop Report

The final report for the NSF Workshop on Intelligent and Information Systems for Geosciences is now available at .
This report was presented to NSF program directors from both CISE and GEO on Oct 19, 2015, and was very well received.

Climate Informatics 2015 (CI 2015)

The Fifth International workshop on Climate Informatics was held at our usual - scenic and friendly - location, namely at the NCAR Mesa lab in Boulder, CO. It took place on Sept 24-25, 2015 and was followed by a 1-day climate informatics Hackathon event on Sept 26.


Two Senior Research Scientist positions at Oak Ridge National Laboratory

Oak Ridge National Laboratory is seeking to fill two positions for senior research scientists:
1. Senior Research Scientist in Climate Change Data Integration, Dissemination, and Informatics
2. Senior Research Scientist in Climate Change Impacts, Adaptation, and Vulnerability

Geoscience Papers of the Future Initiative

The Geoscience Papers of the Future (GPF) is an initiative to encourage geoscientists to publish papers together with the associated digital products of their research.
See for information on upcoming training sessions and a special section of the AGU Earth and Space Science journal that will highlight GPFs..
