The Royal Meteorological Institute of Belgium wants to hire a senior scientist to support the Earth Radiation Budget projects of the Remote Sensing from Space division.
The scientist will primarily support the RMI's participation to the Earth Cloud, Aerosol and Radiation Explorer (EarthCARE) mission, the 9th Earth Explorer satellite of the European Space Agency, to be launched in 2023. The scientist will in particular develop the ground segment for the BroadBand Radiometer (BBR) instrument of EarthCARE.
As an additional responsibility, the scientist will be in charge of publishing Earth Radiation Budget data in the Climate Data Store (CDS) of the Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S).
Your tasks will be:
- Design, implement and validate the ground segment processing for the BBR instrument (BM-RAD and BMA-FLX processors), following ESA standards.
- Participate to the CARDINAL project in which the level 2 processors are chained.
- Prepare the commissioning phase for the satellite and organize Calibration/Validation activities.
- Contribute to the publication of Earth Radiation Budget data in the CDS of C3S. Participation in the administration and day-to-day operation of the satellite processing infrastructure, and reporting at international meetings.
