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
<catherine.prigent@obspm.fr> and/or to <filipe.aires@obspm.fr>

Closing date: November 30, 2016
