    HOURS: fulltime
    LOCATION: Leiden
    CLOSURE: April 15th 2022
    Are you our new colleague?
    Are you an ambitious post-doctoral scientist with strong numerical skills and experienced in atmospheric remote sensing and data processing? Then you are the person we are looking for.
    You and SRON Netherlands Institute for Space Research
    With your work at SRON, you will analyze the performance of the innovative instrument payload of the European CO2 Monitoring (CO2M) mission in perspective of its overall science objectives. CO2M is one of the most challenging European missions for atmospheric remote sensing, comprising the launch of three satellites in the years 2025-2026 by the European Space Agency (ESA). SRON has a leading role in advising ESA regarding the scientific targets of the mission and develops operational data processing algorithms of CO2M for the European operational satellite agency EUMETSAT.
    Your position and team
    You will be part of our team of 8 scientists working on trace gas retrieval in the Earth Science Group (ESG) of SRON. The ESG consists of approximately 25 scientists (permanent, postdocs, PhD students) that work on the data processing and interpretation of satellite instruments as well as the definition of new instrumentation and guiding the development. Our team develops algorithms for trace gas remote sensing, for operational data processing and validation and gives scientific guidance during the implementation phase of future missions.
    Your project
    You will contribute to the end-to-end performance analysis of the CO2M spectrometer and polarimeter instrument. For this purpose, we will simulate radiometric calibrated measurements of the CO2M spectrometer and polarimeter with global and regional data coverage. Performing CO2 accuracy and precision analysis on these data sets will give us inside in the expected mission performance. You will present your results to the project team, our colleges at the agencies and at conferences and in peer-reviewed journals.
    Position requirements
    We are looking for a person with a PhD in (atmospheric) physics or similar. Furthermore, a clear asset will be strong programming skills in Python, C++ and Fortran and experience in atmospheric trace gas and aerosol remote sensing. Good English language skills (speaking and writing) and the ability to both work in a team and independently are a necessity for us.
