Forwarded from CLIMLIST... 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. Please find out more!

The infrastructure is built up as a collaboration of nationally operated measurement stations in 17 European countries. ICOS Sweden (<http://www.icos-sweden.se>) 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.
