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 Ocean Colour 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 Sentinel-3 OLCI Level-l TOA Radiance products and Level-2 Ocean Colour products. This will include contributions to the scientific development, maintenance, Level-l and Level-2 processors, instrument calibration, algorithm and product validation, verification, routine monitoring and offline analysis of Level-l and Level-2 OLCI marine data products in support of the Copernicus Sentinel-3 marine mission. The requested support is for the Sentinel-3 OLCI Ocean Colour product chains; nevertheless, assistance with other marine activities may be required. EUMETSAT disseminates Ocean Colour Third Party Data to Copernicus Marine Services and is in the process of developing OC-related products from its own mandatory missions. The OLCI CalNal activities will require inter-comparisons with Third Party Ocean Colour data sets. The tasks and responsibilities will include: • Support to validation and verification of Level-2 Ocean Colour algorithms and Level-2 and Level-3 products; • Support to OLCI instrument characterization and calibration and to verification of Level-1 products; • Support to the scientific and engineering development of calibration and validation methods as well as implementation of new tools and utilisation of existing tools; • Support to the development of new tools for product processing monitoring and 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 of L1/L2 Ocean Colour 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 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 TSS Department. 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 is sought mainly in the areas of optical imaging for oceanography products, in particular for Ocean Colour products. The consultant shall have the following mandatory experience and background: • University degree in remote sensing, oceanography, physics, or equivalent; • Good inter-personal skills in support of team work; • 5 years or longer experience with satellite Ocean Colour; • Hands-on experience with the calibration and the validation of remote sensing products; • Hands on experience with the development of calibration and product validation methods and tools; • Familiarity with the precursor to the Sentinel-3 Ocean Colour mission; • Experience with operational satellite data processing; • Mandatory 5 years of scientific programming skills (C++, IDL/PV-WAVE and ENVI or equivalent); • Skills in writing technical and scientific documents; • Familiarity with Linux programming environment and Microsoft Office. The following experience would be highly desirable: • Experience with calibration and characterization of Ocean Colour instruments and with calibration validation; • Experience in the development and validation of Ocean Colour data processing; • Experience with the development of product monitoring tools; • Experience with large data sets.
