MOLTEK has been serving the space and aerospace industries since 1995, providing international consultancy services for a wide variety of clients from private and public corporations to national and international authorities and agencies. We are looking to further enhance our team by Senior SST Scientist Support You will be based initially for 2 years at our client’s headquarters in Darmstadt, Germany. Extension of a further 2 years may be possible. In this large European Agency you will find an excellent and modern working environment with challenging tasks and responsibilities. Your Tasks Include: The activities for this Consultancy will include scientific and engineering aspects related to the scientific support to both SLSTR Level-l Radiance and Brightness Temperature products and Level-2 Sea Surface Temperature products. This will include contributions to the scientific development, maintenance, processors, calibration, validation, verification, routine monitoring and offline analysis of Level-1 and Level-2 SLSTR marine data products in support of the Copernicus Sentinel-3 marine mission. The requested support is for the Sentinel-3 SLSTR optical mission product chains, but aligning with the other marine activities relating to the mandatory missions. Remotely sensed marine data also originates from the current and future Client mandatory satellite programs (EPS, EPS-SG, MSG, MTG). Several marine products are currently already in operations or are in development from sensors such as AVHRR and IASI on Metop and SEVIRI on MSG and may contribute to the Copernicus services. Such data may be needed to support the validation of Sentinel-3 SLSTR data, through continuous inter- comparison o f collocated products. The consultant will work in a matrix structure providing cross-divisional support to the Copernicus Sentinel-3 Operations Team and will be a member of the oceanography team of experts and scientists of the RSP/MA-section of the Technical and Science Support Department. The tasks and responsibilities will include: • Support to the verification and validation oflevel-2 products; • Support to verification and calibration activities for level-1 products; • Support to the development of new tools for calibration and/or validation as well as utilisation of existing tools; • Support to the development of new tools for product processing monitoring as well as utilisation of existing tools; • Investigation of anomalies and issues related to Level 1 and Level 2 product quality; • Support to the set-up and operation of product quality monitoring and reporting tools; • Contribution to the analysis, assessment and maintenance ofLl/L2 marine satellite data processors and algorithms; • Contribution to scientific development of algorithms to support Cal/Val activities; • Contribution to the execution of scientific support studies. The support will involve cross-divisional interactions and interface with experts in various disciplines (system engineering, instruments, operations, science), as well as Cal/Val experts. Your Profile: Scientific support consultancy will be sought mainly in the areas of optical imaging for oceanography products, in particular for marine I sea surface temperature products. The consultant shall have the following mandatory experience and background: • University degree in remote sensing, oceanography, meteorology, physics, or equivalent; • Good inter-personal skills in support of team work; • 5 years or longer experience with satellite Sea Surface Temperature and/or visible and infrared data sets; • Knowledge of the pre-cursor mission to Sentinel-3 SLSTR; • Hands-on experience with the calibration and validation of remote sensing products; • Hands on experience with the development of calibration and/or product validation methods; • Experience with operational satellite data processing; • Very good (5 years or longer) scientific programming language skills (including C++, IDLIPV-Wave, ENVI or equivalent and optionally Fortran, Python); • Skills in writing technical and scientific documents; • Familiarity with Microsoft Office. The following experience would be highly desirable: • Experience in the development and validation of satellite data processing; • Experience with large data sets; • Hands on experience with the development of calibration and/or product validation methods. The working language for the position is English and therefore the key person must be able to work effectively in this language. Good communication skills are essential for the fulfillment of the tasks requiring interaction. For more detailed information about MOLTEK go to: http://www.moltek.com
