Two Research Fellowships are available at the European Space Agency for
early career post-doctoral researchers.
Research Fellowship on Satellite Data for Climate Research
European Space Agency Climate Office
Directorate of Earth Observation
ECSAT, Harwell, UK

Research Fellowship on Atmospheric Research
European Space Agency Mission Science Division
Directorate of Earth Observation
ESTEC, Noordwijk, The Netherlands


Details of the positions and how to apply are here:
<http://www.esa.int/About_Us/Careers_at_ESA/Research_Fellow_Opportunities>

The Research Fellow Programme is open to nationals of the following
states: Austria, Belgium, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland,
France, Germany, Hungary, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, the
Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Spain, Sweden,
Switzerland, and the UK, Slovenia as an Associate Member or Canada as a
Cooperating State, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Latvia, Lithuania, and Slovakia as
European Cooperating States (ECS).

Research Fellowship on Satellite Data for Climate Research:
The selected candidate could choose to be involved in various activities
depending on their previous research experience. Suggested topics are:
Participating in activities related to the use of Essential Climate
Variable products of the Climate Change Initiative programme <
http://cci.esa.int> such as climate research, geophysical data analysis,
data validation/intercomparison, data visualisation or data assimilation.

Developing activities common to a subset of climate projects, climate
domains (Atmospheric, Land and Ocean) and their interfaces.
Working to support cross cutting activities such as data harmonisation,
product consistency assessment, uncertainty characterisation.
A wide range of proposals are encouraged and the Climate Office can be
reasonably flexible in what subjects can be covered.

Research Fellowship on Atmospheric Research:
The applicant can choose to be involved in one of two activities

depending on the previous research experience:
Ice Cloud Imager: The sub-mm wave Ice Cloud Imager, ICI, is currently
being implemented as payload of the MetOp Second Generation series of
polar-orbiting meteorological satellites. This Research Fellow
opportunity aims at the assessment of observational data acquired
through campaigns with the new ISMAR airborne instrument developed by
ESA. Sentinel-4 Retrieval: This Research Fellow Opportunity aims at
testing of breadboard retrieval algorithms. It is foreseen that
synthetic satellite data, and possibly also real measurements data from
airborne and satellite sensors will be used for this purpose. The
activity might also cover the exploration of alternative retrieval
approaches depending on the expertise and skills of the candidate.

Contracts are for two years. ESA will provide: as of January 2017, the
remuneration (or 'take-home pay') for a single expatriate Research
Fellow will range from €3,000 to €3,800 per month depending on the
location of the ESA Establishment.

Deadline for applications: 25th April 2017.
