Forwarded from CLIMLIST... Researcher / scientific programmer position in Earth satellite remote sensing at Paris Observatory The Earth remote sensing group in LERMA, Paris Observatory (<https://lerma.obspm.fr/?lang=en>) has an open position for a researcher / scientific programmer. The group works on multi-satellite observations, for the characterization of the Earth atmosphere and surface. Different aspects are covered, from the analysis of satellite observations, the modeling of radiative transfer, the development of inversion methods, to the scientific exploitation of the retrieved product. The vacant position is related to the analysis of satellite and aircraft observations, in both the infrared and in the microwaves. The candidate will work in close collaboration with the scientists of the group. He / she will contribute to two parallel projects in the framework of the next generation of European meteorological satellites (MetOp –SG), in relationship with national (CNES) and international (ESA) space agencies. The first project will consist in analyzing a large dataset of satellite observations (one year for the globe) to improve our understanding of the surface signatures at different microwave wavelengths. Comparison with aircraft observations will also be conducted. The second project is related to the optimization (i.e. sparse representation and deep learning) of the use of hyper-spectral observations in the infrared for the retrieval of atmospheric constituents. Required qualification : • Higher education in geophysics, applied mathematics or equivalent • Knowledge and / or experience in data analysis, in particular of satellite observations • Experience in scientific programming in the Unix environment using, e.g. Matlab and/or Fortran coding • Ability to work efficiently with others as well as independently • Good English skills The position is opened for one year. To apply, send a CV, a motivation letter, and reference names to <firstname.lastname@example.org> and/or to <email@example.com> Closing date: November 30, 2016
