Hyperspectral Infrared Sounding Engineer based at EUMETSAT, Darmstadt, Germany

 

 

HAMTEC Consulting a provider of quality staff to the aerospace industry.

 

We are currently seeking a University degree (or equivalent) in a relevant discipline such as computer science, mathematics, physics, astrophysics, meteorology or remote sensing, the Candidate shall have at least three years of experience in the field of mathematical modelling and scientific computing.

 

Location: Darmstadt, Germany

Start Date: February 2014

Closing date: 15 November 2013

 

TASKS:

 

•             The Key Person will be part of the HIL2 team. This team is responsible for the scientific  development, maintenance, validation and routine monitoring of hyper-spectral infrared atmospheric sounding products in support of the development and operations of EUMETSAT’s geostationary and polar orbiting systems. The Key Person shall contribute to the continued improvement of current operational products considering opportunities and new requirements from the user community. He/she shall support the implementation and evaluation of new algorithms in EUMETSAT operational ground segments.

•             It is expected that the tasks of the Key Person will typically include:

•             Release and validation of new versions of the operational IASI L2 Product Processing  Facility

•             Integration and verification of external software deliveries in the operational ground segment and in the prototype processors of the future missions

•             Software anomaly fixing

•             Development and documentation of  prototype software and test procedures

•             Generation of test data

•             Statistical analysis and visualisation of hyper-spectral infrared Level 2 products

•             Support the transfer of the IASI expertise to future hyper-spectral infrared missions (MTG-IRS and IASI-NG)

•             Retrieval algorithm specification, validation and tuning

 

Qualifications and Experience

 

•             A University degree (or equivalent) in a relevant discipline such as computer science, mathematics, physics, astrophysics, meteorology or remote sensing

•             at least three years of experience in the field of mathematical modelling and scientific computing

 

 

Essential Skills

•             Development and testing of complex scientific software;

•             Handling and processing of big amounts of data

•             Object oriented techniques for scientific computing

•             Software tools for revision control

•             Very good skills in a high level programming language, preferably C++

•             Advanced use of data analysis and visualisation with tools like Matlab, IDL or  equivalent; preferably with satellite data

 

Desirable Skills

 

•             Inverse problems

•             Principal component analysis

•             Further mathematical modelling techniques (non-linear optimization, regression,  neural networks, Kalman filters, etc.)

•             Familiarity with satellite data, preferably from IASI or other hyper-spectral infrared instruments

•             Use of radiative transfer models

•             Retrieval of atmospheric parameters from infrared and/or microwave radiances

•             Data formats and libraries such as HDF5 and NetCDF

•             Software testing
