Copernicus Climate Change Service contract on improved fundamental land
and ocean surface data holdings

Maynooth University are looking to hire two postdoctoral researchers and
a service manager / administrative support to work on a new Copernicus
Climate Change Service tender which we expect to be awarded with
commencement in the spring. The service contract is for 48 months but
split into two contracts. Initial appointments cover the first contract
period through end of 2018 with expectation of renewal through February
2021 pending satisfactory review of the overall service and renewal of
contract by ECMWF. The tender includes subcontracts with UK Met Office,
National Oceanography Centre (Southampton) and the UK Science and
Technology Facilities Council and collaboration with the National
Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s National Centers for
Environmental Information. Travel to and sustained interactions with
these parties shall be necessary.

The service manager position shall be a full-time position. Half of the
position will be fulfilled in undertaking service management (reporting,
coordination, administration of the service). The other half shall offer
administrative support functions to the Irish Climate Analysis and
Research Units including aiding grant preparation, maintaining
external-facing materials, and promoting the group and their activities.

Further particulars on the service manager position are available at

The two post-doctoral positions shall work primarily on the creation and
provision of an improved set of fundamental land data holdings. This
work shall focus on creation of holdings that are better integrated both
across Essential Climate Variables and across sub-daily, daily and
monthly timescales. Data shall be prepared and served via the C3S Data
Store. Work will be required to build substantively new archives from
the original underlying sources with improved provenance and using a
common data model that enables users to more fully understand and better
utilise the data to build new datasets and data products.
Further details on the postdoctoral positions can be found at

All job adverts close February 19th with interviews expected in
mid-March and start date of mid-April or as soon as possible thereafter.

Informal queries about any of these positions can be sent to
