Working at CIMSS
Working at CIMSS is more than a job. If you are curious and committed to making our planet a better place for today and tomorrow, then come join other like-minded colleagues at the University of Wisconsin–Madison, the birthplace of satellite meteorology. Together, we are increasing awareness, preparedness and resilience to changes in weather and climate by maximizing the benefits of meteorological satellites.
Reach out to us if you have expertise in weather and climate research, satellite remote sensing, software engineering, data science, data visualization, grants management and administration, science communication or education and training. We’re always looking for talented individuals to join our vibrant team. So if you’re interested, let’s talk.
CIMSS hires undergraduate students as interns or hourly employees from a range of academic backgrounds. If you possess a knack for web development, information technology, atmospheric science, administrative support and you don’t see a position listed here, please contact us because we might be looking for someone with your skill set.
Each year, CIMSS investigators hire research assistants to contribute to ongoing programs in weather and climate research, satellite remote sensing, software engineering, data visualization and science communication, among others. Please contact us for more information and to let us know what your interests are.
In addition to research assistantships, every three years CIMSS invites applications for the William L. Smith Sr. Graduate Scholarship that is available to students entering the Ph.D. program of the Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences. The award provides up to three years of financial support toward the completion of an advanced degree and a travel stipend. Contact us for more information.
CIMSS invites inquiries from individuals interested in exploring postdoctoral opportunities. Postdoctoral fellows develop research projects in collaboration with CIMSS scientists who provide mentorship and may have complementary research interests. Postdocs have the freedom to pursue their own research interests and are responsible for the design and execution of their projects.
If you’re interested in a postdoc at CIMSS, please send us an email telling us about yourself and your research interests.
