Météo France -- Post-Doc "Remote sensing of the surface in the visible and near-infrared domains"

Posted-Deadline 08/03/2017 -  01/04/2017
Type Job vacancy
Description Context
CNRM is the main Météo-France laboratory in R&D. The open position is to join the remote sensing division of CNRM laboratory (http://www.umr-cnrm.fr/). CNRM contributes to the development of the observation of land surfaces at the continental scale and at the global scale, through in situ and remote sensing techniques. CNRM has acquired considerable experience in developing operational algorithms using data from various space missions (METEOSAT, NOAA, METOP, MTG, EPS-SG, …) and is involved in several space programs for EUMETSAT (project CDOP3, LSA-SAF), and ECMWF (COPERNICUS/C3S/Lot9).

Objectives of the job position
  • improve existing scientific algorithms for retrieval of radiative products (BRDF, albedo and solar radiation) at the surface level.
  • scientifically: improve the atmospheric correction (aerosol), the retrieval of directional properties, the spectral conversion, and the angular integrations. Adapt the current algorithms to the past and next generation of instruments (mainly for the visible and near infrared domains).
  • technically: improve the architecture and the performances (calculation cost).
  • help IT developers in charge of the computing environment to implement the scientific algorithm in operational systems.
  • conduce evaluation studies
  • write and update documents of reference (ATBD, Product User Manual, validation).
  • check consistency of these developments with those of other projects.
  • publish and present the work in international conference.
