Posted-Deadline 05/04/2018 -  01/05/2018
Type Job vacancy
Description For the AC SAF (“Atmospheric Composition Satellite Application Facility”) and the EUNADICS-AV project, the Ozone, UV and aerosol group at the Royal Meteorological Institute of Belgium is opening a full time position for a short term contract with the perspective for a prolongation.

Framework of the project
Within the AC SAF consortium, algorithms are developed in order to obtain dedicated operational atmospheric remote sensing level 2 products from polar-orbiting satellites MetOp-A, MetOp-B and soon also from MetOp-C (e.g. Aerosol-, total ozone column-, tropospheric ozone column- and other trace gases products.) RMI is a member of this consortium and is focussing on the validation of some of these data products. Within the AC SAF project, we are responsible for:
  • Validation of GOME-2 and IASI ozone profile products using balloon soundings.
  • Validation of GOME-2 offline tropospheric ozone, NO2, HCHO and aerosol products.
  • Quality assurance.

Within the EUNADICS-AV (EUropean Natural Airborne DIsaster Information and Coordination System for AViation) project, early warning tools are developed, which can be used in an operational context for aviation safety.

Specifically, the main focus will be on
  • Processing of large datasets in order to fulfil RMI’s tasks within AC SAF and EUNADICS-AV.

In addition, the scientist shall:
  • Contribute to journal paper(s)
  • Participate to the project meetings and reviews.
  • Be prepared to travel regularly for short missions (1 or 2 days).
