I would like to bring your attention to the Earth Scientist position with expertise in Informatics, now open through USAJobs:
Description (from the posting):
The Science & Exploration Directorate, Earth Sciences Division, Global Change Data Center (Code 610.2), is seeking a senior scientist to lead research projects to utilize remote sensing data in Atmospheric Science applications and develop Earth Science Informatics tools at the Goddard Earth Science Data and Information Services Center (GES DISC).

As an Aerospace Technologist (AST) specializing in Earth Science data analysis and informatics, you will lead a team of scientists and software developers in: the design, planning, development, testing and evolution of on-line Earth Science data analysis and visualization tools; the investigation of science data provenance used to evaluate measurements suitability for a given science parameter and/or interpretation; and the cultivation of science partnerships and successful pursuit of winning proposals (solicited and unsolicited) for applied research.

The scope of responsibilities also includes: sensitivity analysis for global and regional assessments of aerosol, clouds and other atmospheric parameters; development of procedures (such as Giovanni see http://disc.sci.gsfc.nasa.gov/giovanni/overview/index.html) that bring together and visualize datasets in various ways (e.g., merging, co-registering); outreach to the science research community to promote awareness of products and services; working with applications communities to facilitate usage of NASA remote-sensing data for societal benefits; and filling leadership roles in science data informatics working groups. In addition, the incumbent will develop strategies to address various aspects of multi-mission data analysis (e.g., inter-comparisons, data quality, data fusion) in conjunction with interested members of the science community, and reusable across other science disciplines.

A successful record of winning proposals in the Earth Science arena is required. Significant publications in prominent Earth Science peer-reviewed journals are expected.
