EUMETSAT, Darmstadt, Germany
Closing date: 19 June 2018
EUMETSAT requires a Climate Product Expert to work within the Climate Services Team, and to focus on the processing of satellite data to Level 1 in support of the Copernicus Climate Change Service (CS3). This is an opportunity to be involved with specific scientific developments related to the creation of fundamental climate data records for atmospheric sounding instruments measuring in the infrared and microwave spectrum. This will include the development and application of novel quality control methods for metadata and raw data, the development and validation of instrument corrections and calibration methods plus the derivation and of uncertainty estimates for Level 1 data products. The work also requires the compilation of relevant reports describing the developed methodology, its validation and application.
Alongside a university degree in Meteorology, Remote Sensing (or equivalent) you will need to demonstrate in depth knowledge and experience in the calibration of infrared and/or microwave instruments flown on meteorological satellites or similar missions. You will also have experience of scientific developments for instrument corrections, vicarious calibration and validation of satellite products and the ability to undertake programming using C/C++ and/or Fortran 95 as well as scripting languages such as Perl, Python and Shell.
The official languages of EUMETSAT are English and French. Candidates must be able to work effectively in English and have some knowledge of French.
