HP045 Scientific Software Developer

The Heliophysics Science Division at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center is seeking a skilled software developer who has experience working closely with scientists to support NASA human and robotic spaceflight programs. This position supports a new activity to provide space weather analysis services to NASA spaceflight missions utilizing models and software transitioned from the CCMC. This activity will also ingest real-time space environment information and observational data streams from a variety of sources.   

The CCMC has the unique capability of maintaining 80+ models in house, which are made available to the scientific community and. when appropriate, transitioned to operational centers.  Currently, the CCMC offers real-time space weather products some of which will be transitioned to operational use in support of NASA crewed missions beyond LEO. These include real time simulations of corona, heliosphere, and solar energetic particles (SEPs) with outputs currently available at CCMC’s Integrated Space Weather Analysis system (iSWA) and SEP Scoreboard. The SEP Scoreboard is part of the Integrated Solar Energetic Proton Alert/Warning System (ISEP) project aiming to implement state-of-the-art space radiation predictive capabilities, to address NASA/Johnson Space Center’s Space Radiation Analysis Group (SRAG) needs for supporting human missions beyond LEO.   The software developer is expected to be detail oriented with excellent communication, organizational, problem solving, and critical thinking skills.  


  • Work with scientists on transitioning models and tools from an environment shared by CCMC and new operational servers. The models are written in a variety of languages and executed by shell scripts.
  • Develop internal web pages to serve model outputs. The SEP Scoreboard web application is written in Python and Dash.
  • Troubleshoot model failure modes and improve the operational robustness of models.

Required skills (3+ years):

  • Programming: Python, C,C++, Java, Unix Shell scripting, Dash, HTML
  • Operating Systems: Linux

Education:  Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science. Science degree and/or work experience in a scientific environment is a plus.  

US citizenship or Permanent Residence is required.
