Forwarded from CLIMLIST... Job Announcement in the Area of Atmospheric Remote Sensing and Climate System Postdoc Scientist / Experienced Researcher (1 year as of October 2014, 2nd year optional) at the Wegener Center for Climate and Global Change, University of Graz, Austria Project: OPSCLIM—Reference Occultation Processing System for Cal/Val and Climate: SI-traceable Processing with Integrated Uncertainty Propagation. Goal of this project of the research group ARSCliSys (<www.wegcenter.at/arsclisys>) is a new processing system for GNSS radio occultation (RO) that aims to establish RO data records as global climate reference standard. Field of work: As a key member of the OPSCLIM team, focus on Level 1a processing of RO data, i.e., the derivation of accurate LEO orbits and excess phase and amplitude profiles from raw data (Level 0 navigation and occultation tracking data and GNSS orbits), with new approaches integrating uncertainty propagation. Option to contribute (as co-author) also to new dynamic optimal estimation of bending angles and moist-air tropospheric profiles. Job profile: Duration and payment: One year from October 2014 (or earliest possible starting date),option for a 2nd year (in extension project); 40h/week full-time, University of Graz salary scheme (2014 postdoc annual gross salary 49,000 €, including extensive social benefits package). Qualifications and skills: • PhD graduate, or several years of experience as MSc/MEng graduated researcher, in a natural sciences or technical discipline (e.g., geodesy, geophysics, meteorology, atmospheric physics, space physics, physics, electrical/IT engineering); • Expertise in geodesy and atmospheric science, and atmospheric remote sensing from satellites,preferably in space geodesy and/or atmospheric sounding with GNSS; • Experience with scientific modeling and (GNSS) data analysis, including experience with space-geodetic software (e.g., Bernese, Napeos); • Experience with work on Linux/Unix and Windows operating systems, and scientific programming skills (e.g., Fortran, C++; MatLab/IDL, Python); • Responsible work style, distinct problem solving skills, ability to temporarily work also under pressure (if unavoidable), ability to effectively work in a team; • Fluency in English, good communication and (scientific) writing/reporting skills. More information in case of interest (no worries, we look forward to your inquiries!): Dr. Marc Schwärz: +43-316-380 8455; <firstname.lastname@example.org> Please send your application (motivation letter, CV plus publications, contact details of two referees) per e-mail (pdf) to Marc Schwärz. Application deadline: September 10, 2014. The University of Graz is striving to increase the percentage of women employed at the university and there-fore expressly invites qualified women to apply. Priority is given to equally qualified women. Brief information—Wegener Center. The Wegener Center for Climate and Global Change is an interdisciplinary, internationally oriented institute of the University of Graz, which serves as core center for pooling the competences of the University in the areas Climate, Environmental, and Global Change. The institute brings together research teams and scientists from fields such as geophysics and climate physics, meteorology, economics, geography, and regional sciences.
