    A sound experience in the specification, prototyping, implementation, verification and validation of complex, real-time Level 1 data processing systems for imaging and/or sounding instruments on remote sensing spacecraft;

    A thorough understanding of the interaction between instrument/platform characteristics and processing impact, including product quality;

    Experience in the development of INR processing systems preferable for large (multi-instrument) operational space programmes;

    The ability:

    To work effectively in small teams;

    To work autonomously without close supervision;

    To work to tight deadlines under changing conditions;

    To analyze complex problems, distinguishing between critical and less critical information, and to synthesize and clearly present the results of such analyses.
