    Job Description

    EUMETSAT is Europe’s meteorological satellite agency - monitoring the weather and climate from space - 24 hours a day, 365 days a year

    We are currently looking for an experienced Remote Sensing Scientist to join our international team of young and inspiring engineers and industry professionals, tasked with driving innovation within the Space, Satellite and Earth Observation sector.

    This role is routed in the mission of EUMETSAT and will provide the opportunity to work with leading IT, Space and Earth Observation organisations and domain experts to make a positive impact on society!

    The Remote Sensing and Products (RSP) Division is tasked with providing the scientific expertise required to develop, implement, validate, maintain and evolve the operational observational products for all EUMETSAT satellites and agreed third party missions, such as the Copernicus CO2 Monitoring, as well as establishing the user requirements for future EUMETSAT missions.

    Within the Atmospheric Chemistry (ACh) Competence Area of the Remote Sensing and Products Division (RSP), the Remote Sensing Scientist – CO2M spectrometer calibration will be responsible for, and contribute to, the CO2 and NO2 visible to short-wave infrared grating spectrometer instrument calibration and product processing on-board the Copernicus CO2 Monitoring (CO2M) mission, with additional responsibility for the scientific development, maintenance, verification, validation and quality monitoring of instrument products. CO2M is the space component of the European integrated observation and inversion modelling system dedicated to the monitoring of anthropogenic CO2 emissions.


    What you’ll be doing

    Acquire and maintain an in depth understanding of the CO2 and NO2 visible to short-wave infrared grating spectrometer instrument design, on-board of CO2M;

    Support the prototyping and operational implementation of algorithms for instrument calibration and product processing;

    Plan, develop and perform product calibration and validation activities, with respect to the CO2 and NO2 spectrometer instrument;

    Provide product quality analysis and long-term monitoring of CO2 and NO2 spectrometer products;

    Support CO2M mission preparation for commissioning and operations with respect to processor integrations, system testing, validation and verification;

    Support industrial activities for operational processor development, and processor specification, as well as CO2 and NO2 spectrometer instrument ground-calibration campaigns;

    Play an active role in relevant preparations for mission operations and scientific interactions with the CO2 Monitoring and Verification Support capacity user community.


    What we offer

    Excellent salary, of up to Euro 7,500 / month NET (after tax) based on skills and experience

    Flexible working time including additional flexi-leave

    Private medical coverage for employee and family

    Relocation allowance and support (if applicable)




    Advanced university degree (or equivalent experience) in remote sensing, physics or other related degree.


    Skills and Experience:

    In-depth scientific knowledge of space-borne spectrometer calibration, and product processing;

    Familiarity with high spectral resolution grating spectrometer instrument design and calibration, for instruments operating in the visible to the short-wave infrared region, is a distinct advantage;

    Proven experience of processing large-volumes of data from relevant space borne instruments;

    Demonstrable experience with scientific development projects and working with user communities and researchers;

    Experience of working in a UNIX environment and with scientifically-oriented coding languages like C/C++, Python and/or MATLAB;

    Familiarity with Java is an advantage;

    Strengths in analysis, synthesis and presentation, coupled with good interpersonal skills and a proven ability to apply these to the interactions within a team and between teams.
