Vacancy: Two research engineers to ICOS Sweden

We invite two research engineers to work in our team. One position is
based in northern Sweden, at the Swedish University of Agricultural
Sciences Forest Research Station in Vindeln, and one is based in central
Sweden at Norunda Field Station outside Uppsala which is operated by the
University of Lund.

The main task of the positions will be to participate in the development
and maintenance of the ICOS monitoring sites. A major part of the work
includes supervision, calibration and maintenance of field equipment and
data handling (transfer, quality check and deliveries). The work
includes daily routines as well as temporary intensive campaigns. There
may also be participation in other, relevant research projects.

Professional requirements
The positions require an academic exam in natural/technical science
including one or several of the subjects micrometeorology, physical
geography, environmental physics and biogeochemical measurement
technology. A Ph.D. within one of these fields of science is desirable
but not required. Experience in micro-meteorological methods, automated
systems for biochemical research and field measurements, ability to
climb meteorological towers up to 150 meter height, and experiences in
computing and data management are also considered an advantage.
Collaborative competence and ability to structure and prioritise working
tasks efficiently are important personal qualifications. The ability to
express yourself in speech and writing in English is also important, and
an advantage if in Swedish as well. Driving license is required.

ICOS - Integrated Carbon Observation System

- is a new European research infrastructure for quantifying and
understanding the greenhouse gas balance of the European continent and
of adjacent regions. The infrastructure is built up as a collaboration
of nationally operated measurement stations in 17 European countries.
ICOS Sweden (<>) is the Swedish contribution to
this European effort.

High-precision, standardized observations of the exchange of greenhouse
gases and heat between the Earth's surface and its atmosphere form an
essential basis for understanding not only our planet's present climate,
but also past and future developments. It has also become clear that
these studies must be secured beyond the lifetime of a typical research
project. The aim of ICOS is therefore to construct, equip and operate a
network of standardized long-term, high precision integrated monitoring
stations for atmospheric greenhouse gas concentrations of CO2, CH4, CO
and radiocarbon-CO2.
