[Met-jobs] Research Fellowship opportunity in Advanced Concepts Team at ESA

Date Fri, 8 Aug 2014 15:46:08 +0200

Good day,

We would like to inform about the Research Fellow position in Planetary System Science and Climate Engineering in the Advanced Concepts Team in European Space Agency:
Internal Research Fellow (Post-doc) in Planetary System Science and Climate Engineering
ESA - European Space Agency
Noordwijk, Netherlands

(Directorate of Technical and Quality Management)

The European Space Agency's Advanced Concepts Team is looking for a highly motivated young researcher in the field of planetary system science and climate engineering.

The Advanced Concepts Team (ACT) is a group of research fellows (post-docs) and young graduates who originate from a broad variety of academic fields and aim at an academic career. Its task is to monitor, perform and foster research on advanced space systems, innovative concepts and working methods. It interacts externally almost exclusively with academia and operates as a truly interdisciplinary team bound to high scientific standards. Via its research, the team acts as a cross-departmental pathfinder to explore novel, potentially promising areas for ESA and the space sector, ranging from applied to basic fundamental research topics. An important task of the team is to communicate scientific trends and results, as input to the strategic planning of the Agency.
In the specific field of planetary system science, the team has been active since 2009, starting mainly with exploratory research on climate engineering. Climate engineering is understood as a specific branch of Earth or planetary system science. It transcends disciplinary boundaries to treat the Earth or planetary climates as an integrated system seeking a deeper understanding of the physical, chemical, biological interactions that determine the past, current and future states. Other topics explored by the team include space options for natural disaster prevention and advanced remote sensing concepts.
The successful candidate will carry out research in planetary systems science and climate engineering.
Areas of research are partly chosen by the successful candidate based on his/her own expert judgements and insight into trends and developments, partly chosen by the team as to follow strategic directions of the Agency.
Scientifically she/he will in particular: As ACT researcher, she/he will: REQUIRED QUALIFICATIONS
