We are looking to further enhance our team by adding a Aerosol Product Development Consultant 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 consultant will be fully integrated in the Atmospheric Composition Team within the Remote Sensing and Products Division but will also be expected to interface with experts as required. The tasks of the Key person will include: • Development of algorithms for aerosol products from instruments on the Metop series of satellites with a particular focus on multi-instrument aerosol products, drawing on the science of current established products from hyperspectral infrared and UV/Visible sounders and multi-channel imagers (PMAp); • Evaluation and refinement of aerosol algorithms for the current MSG SEVIRI instrument; • Taking into account the constraints imposed by the final goal of implementation of the products within an operational processing system; • Development of prototype software code for the purposes of testing and validating the algorithms developed; • Generation of test data required for the verification of the algorithm and products; • Validation of the products produced by the prototype software code using independent data; • Generation of associated documentation including test data descriptions, Algorithm Theoretical Basis Documents (ATBD), Product User Guides, Calibration and Validation Plan, Validation reports etc; • Provision of support for implementation and validation of the products within the operational processing environment; • Interfacing with experts as needed; • Collaboration with expert groups and the wider scientific community outside Client as appropriate; • Provision of support for algorithm development and potentially prototype software development for future polar orbiting missions including next generation hyperspectral infrared and UV/Visible sounders and multi-channel imaging instruments with improved potential for deriving aerosol products. The tasks of the Key person will be carried out mainly at our Client facilities in Darmstadt, but travel within Europe may be required for certain activities. Your Profile: The key person shall have the experience and capability to fulfil the assigned tasks with a minimum of supervision and have good inter-personal skills. He/she shall be familiar with satellite instrument characteristics for Earth observation, in particular for atmospheric composition, meteorology and climate monitoring. He/she shall have the ability to write concise and comprehensive scientific and technical reports. In addition to having a University degree (or equivalent) in a relevant discipline, the Key person shall have a minimum of 5 years experience in the field of remote sensing product development including at least 2 years of aerosol product development. Specifically the key person shall have experience in: • Aerosol optical and micro-physical properties retrieval from satellite data; • Inverse modeling of atmospheric composition using infrared and UV-VIS (vector) radiative transfer models; • Calibration and validation of satellite data products; • The EPS missions and instruments; • Writing concise and comprehensive scientific and technical reports in English; • Demonstrated skills in a higher programming language, preferably in C++; • Specification, design and coding of complex product processors; • Testing and verification of complex data processing systems. The following areas of expertise would be an advantage: • Familiarity with the retrieval of aerosol optical and microphysical properties from hyperspectral infrared satellite data • Familiarity with aerosol retrieval algorithm from geostationary satellites (e.g. from SEVIRI); • Quality control of satellite data and products; • Operational product processing environments; • Software build environments and tools (e.g. make, imake, eclipse, insure++); • Source code control system, (e.g. Subversion or CVS). The official languages are English and French. The working language for the position is English and therefore Key person must be able to work effectively in this language and have knowledge of the other.
