Job Title:Higher Research Scientist - Climate Data

Type:Fixed Term

Job Description
The UK's National Physical Laboratory (NPL) sits at the intersection between 
scientific discovery and real world application. One of the top three National 
Measurement Institutes (NMIs) in the world, we now have a regional presence and 
strategic relationships with Surrey and Strathclyde Universities. Our expertise 
and original research have benefited UK citizens and the UK economy for over a 
century. The Earth Observation, Climate and Optical (ECO) Group at the National 
Physical Laboratory are seeking an enthusiastic post-doctoral research 
scientist to work on a new project to support the development of the Copernicus 
Climate Change Service (C3S: http://climate.copernicus.eu/). 

Your role will focus on evaluating the quality of climate data records (CDRs) 
from both satellite and in situ observations for climate science applications 
and decision making. The work will involve the scientific assessment of a wide 
range of different climate data records through detailed analysis of the 
metrological traceability of uncertainties based on FIDUCEO methodologies (see 
www.fiduceo.eu for details of the FIDUCEO project) as well as setting up 
standard quality assurance metrics along the lines of QA4ECV (see www.qa4ecv.eu 
for more details). As such, this position will provide an ideal opportunity to 
gain wide experience on the production and use of a range of climate data 
records.
