Ocean Colour Scientist - Climate Change Initiative - Plymouth, UK
Plymouth Marine Laboratory (PML) is seeking to appoint an Ocean Colour 
Scientist to work on the ESA Climate Change Initiative project. PML is 
recognised internationally as a dynamic, highly innovative, independent and 
impartial deliverer of scientific research and advice on the marine environment.

Ocean Colour Scientist - CCI. Ref: PML39613
Starting salary £28,655 - £35,655p.a.

PML is looking for an enthusiastic and highly motivated Earth Observation 
scientist to work on the European Space Agency funded Ocean Colour CCI project 
to improve the error characteristics of global ocean colour (OC) data for use 
in climate studies. The appointment is a full time permanent position. If 
successful you will: research, develop and implement improved in-water, and 
possibly atmospheric correction, algorithms for ocean colour retrieval; assist 
with production of a high quality global OC time series from MERIS, MODIS, 
SeaWiFS and Sentinel 3 OLCI; compare these data with existing OC products; 
investigate links with other CCI projects (such as sea-surface temperature 
CCI); investigate other ocean colour sensors such as the NOAA VIIRS and ISRO 
OCM-2; and interact with the international EO and climate communities.

Eligibility: You will have ideally a PhD or 3+ years post-graduate research 
experience in a numerate scientific discipline and experience in: EO data 
processing and handling; or quantitative marine bio-optical theory, marine 
sciences or biogeochemistry; or ocean colour remote sensing. Familiarity with 
SeaDAS or BEAM would be beneficial but not essential. You should possess proven 
experience and skills in computer programming in C, C++, IDL, Java or Perl 
preferably in a Linux environment.
