Start Date: 1st Quarter 2016

Closing date: 29 January 2016

 

TASKS:

 

In-house support is sought for the ongoing processor development activities in preparation for the future UVN instrument to be flown on MTG-S. The key person will provide support within the Atmospheric Composition Team in the Remote Sensing and Products (RSP) Division of EUMETSAT, located in Darmstadt, Germany. He/she will be fully integrated in the Atmospheric Composition Team and will interface with in-house

experts of various disciplines (system, instruments, operations, science), and in particular members of the MTG Science and Instrument Teams.

It is expected that the tasks of the Key Person will typically include:

·           Provision of support to the development of algorithms for calibration of UVN level 0 data;

·           Provision of support to the development of an Instrument Data Simulator;

·           Taking into account the constraints imposed by the final goal of implementation of the products within an operational processing system;

·           Provision of support to the development of prototype software code for the purposes of testing and validation the algorithms developed;

·           Provision of support to the development of an instrument performance model based on specifications to be provided by industry;

·           Provision of support to the development of software for cross-calibration and validation activities;

·           Generation of test data required for the verification of the algorithm and products;

·           Provision of support to the generation of associated documentation including test data descriptions, Product Specification (PS), technical reports etc;

·           Interfacing with experts across EUMETSAT as needed;

·           Collaboration with expert groups and the wider scientific community outside EUMETSAT as appropriate;

·           Assessment of results from scientific studies;

·           Provision of support to operational level 2 processor development activities, for future level 2 product development for the UVN instrument.
