RESEARCH ASSOCIATE IN GREENHOUSE GAS REMOTE SENSING in the EARTH OBSERVATION SCIENCE GROUP, UNIVERSITY OF LEICESTER, UK

Satellite remote sensing of greenhouse gases (GHG) CO2 and CH4 is an important research area that has the potential to transform the field of carbon cycle science by providing us with global observations on their sources and sinks and how they change with time. This information will be essential for development of reliable forecasts of the future state of the global carbon and methane budgets and climate and it will also provide us with a means for independent verification of GHG emissions supporting the international efforts to reduce fossil carbon emissions.

We are seeking a Research Associate with a strong background in satellite remote sensing to work on advancing greenhouse gas retrieval methods and to support the development of the upcoming CNES/UK MicroCarb CO2 satellite mission. Specifically, you will work on large-scale simulation experiments and use measurements from current missions such as NASA OCO-2 and the Chinese TanSat missions to infer global datasets of atmospheric CO2 which will be evaluated against ground-based observations and models.

Leicester is a leading University committed to international excellence, world-changing research and high quality, inspirational teaching. We are strongly committed to inclusivity, promoting equality and celebrating diversity among our staff and students. You will develop your career in a supportive and collaborative academic environment in one of the world’s leading research-intensive universities; elite in the excellence of our research, yet distinctive for the genuine synergy between our research and teaching.
