Forwarded from CLIMLIST... Vacancy: Research engineer to ICOS Sweden We invite for applications to the open position as a Research Engineer in the area of micrometeorology and environmental measurements. The position has its base at the forest research station, located in the Svartberget Experimental Forest (Lat 64°14’ N, Long 19°14’ E) near Vindeln, about 70 km northwest of the town Umeå, Sweden. The main task of the position will be to participate in the development and maintenance of the ICOS monitoring sites in the Vindeln area. A major part of the work includes supervision, calibration and maintenance of field equipment, on ground and in towers, as well as 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 that are supervised from the research station. The work is performed in collaboration within the ICOS-team, other researcher and research groups and with the staff members at the research station. Professional requirements The position requires an academic exam in natural/technical science including one or several of the subject’s 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 work in meteorological tower up to 150 meter, 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.
