Remote Sensing Scientist – UVN and UVNS (VN 19/04)

(2 Positions)

EUMETSAT - European Organisation for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites

Darmstadt, Germany

Could you contribute to the scientific development, maintenance and quality monitoring of atmospheric products from our ultra-violet, visible, near and short-wave infrared spectrometers based on our next generation of satellite missions?

EUMETSAT operates the Copernicus missions on behalf of the European Commission, providing marine and atmospheric data services to monitor climate change. To support the remote sensing activities of these missions, we are recruiting two scientists to be responsible for the development, maintenance and validation of products derived from Copernicus Sentinel-4/UVN and Sentinel-5/UVNS instruments.

Your role at EUMETSAT

Within this role you will support the scientific development of calibrated radiance, irradiance and derived atmospheric composition products from ultra-violet, visible, near and short-wave infrared satellite instruments. These activities will provide the opportunity to actively support operational and scientific interactions with user communities, other agencies and the European Space Agency (ESA), responding to their evolving needs.

You will provide scientific support to the operational implementation of data processing and products, prototyping software and providing the associated documentation. You will define, calibrate and validate the long-term monitoring activities for this suite of products, formulating future requirements as the needs of our users evolve.

To be successful you should have a degree level qualification in remote sensing or another relevant discipline. Your experience in the retrieval of trace gases and other atmospheric products ultra-violet, visible, near and short-wave spectrometers should be coupled with an expertise in the use of radiative transfer models. We would expect you to have developed scientific application software, and demonstrable experience of working with user communities and researchers. You should also have experience of working in an operational data processing environment with knowledge of scientifically-oriented coding languages. You need to be organised, with an ability to understand and explain complex scientific information to your team and the user communities.

What we offer

We work in a collaborative, international environment which offers you a competitive salary and outstanding benefits. We offer the opportunity to work on exciting satellite programmes - both current and planned. You will have the opportunity to play a leading role in the application of remote sensing science, making a difference to our user community. You will work with people who are experts in their field and will have the opportunity to establish a long career at EUMETSAT.
