We are currently looking for a Earth Observation Applications Support Engineer to support our customer in the United Kingdom.

    Earth Observation Applications Support Engineer

     
    Responsibilities                                      

    As part of the ESA climate office, your responsibilities are to expand the awareness, utilisation and scientific impact of EO data for climate research and applications, in particular for the ocean but also for other domains of the earth system. The tasks include conducting scientific data exploitation activities and research studies to address gaps in knowledge as part of the contribution of European Earth Observation science to future IPCC assessments and reports, supporting and informing the implementation of global policy decisions taken at COP21 in Paris, December 2015.

     

    Key Tasks

    Establishing a dialogue with specialised user communities, analysing their needs for satellite-based observations of the climate system, and assessing their feedback on available EO-based information;

    Deriving technical specifications for Fundamental Climate Data Records and Essential Climate Variables, chiefly from ESA EO Missions, with specific regard to long-term stability, consistency, completeness, availability, error-characterisation, reducing uncertainties, and compatibility with climate observations from other (Space and non space) sources;

    Setting up and managing industrial contracts (R&D projects and other EO exploitation activities) to respond to the needs for EO-based information of climate research and climate services, including for reanalysis, modelling, attribution, projection, prediction, trends assessment, and data assimilation;

    Ensuring the results of such developments are tested and verified with the corresponding climate user communities;

    Cooperating with internal and external partner organisations to transfer capabilities developed under a research and demonstration context into an operational framework;;

    Maintaining links and ensuring coherence with relevant activities of Member States and international partner organisations;

    Contributing to the Agency's public communications on EO.

    Skills & Experience

    You will have the following qualifications and relevant experience:

    PhD preferably in oceanography, physics or geophysics, or other appropriate scientific fields, and have at least two years of experience in related remote sensing applications development and/or research;

    Extensive professional experience on product definition, calibration, validation, algorithm development, quality assessment and exploitation of Earth Observation data, particularly ESA missions, a demonstrable experience from relevant scientific exploitation activities either internationally or in ESA member states and an established profile with research communities working on the ocean and its relation to climate;

    Fluency in English is mandatory; knowledge of another European language is an advantage.

    This job is located in Harwell. We welcome applicants who are available from October 2017 (or as soon as possible thereafter). If you think you have what it takes for this job, please send us your CV together with a letter of motivation (both in English and in Word) to Ms Corrina Scheepmaker at jobs@hespace.com, quoting job UK-SC-3570 before 27-Aug-17.
