Internal Research Fellow PostDoc in Optical Ground Support Equipment

2018-11-29 14:31:17| Space-careers.com Jobs RSS

Research fellowship opportunity in the Directorate of Technology, Engineering and Quality. ESA is an equal opportunity employer, committed to achieving diversity within the workforce and creating an inclusive working environment. Applications from women are encouraged. Post Internal Research Fellow PostDoc in Optical Ground Support Equipment This post is classified F2 on the Coordinated Organisations salary scale. Location ESTEC, Noordwijk, The Netherlands Description Within the Mechatronics and Optics Division, the Optics Section provides functional support to ESA projects and carries out technological research activities in the following areas optical component technology, such as microoptics, passive integrated optics, xray optics optical instrumentation, such as spectroradiometric imaging instruments in the visible and infrared interferometers testing, calibration and performance verification of optical systems. Fields of activitiesresearch In the frame of calibrating hyperspectral instruments, the development of optical ground support equipment OGSE is very cost and time intensive. Generally speaking, a new and dedicated OGSE has to be designed and built from scratch for each instrument. This often leads to delayed and costly OGSEs which may end up not being an appropriate fit for the hyperspectral instrument needing to be calibrated. The selected candidate will work on the following range of topics linked to OGSEs for hyperspectral instruments, initially covering ultraviolet UV, visible VIS and possibly shortwave infrared SWIR spectral range Investigating existing OGSEs Looking at tradeoffs between different setup, light sources, etc. Identifying commonalities between different OGSE use for instruments, such that a more general OGSE could potentially be designed and then used by several different instruments Technical competencies Ability to conduct research autonomously Breadth of exposure coming from past andor current researchactivities Researchpublication record Knowledge relevant to the field of research General interest in space and space research Ability to gather and share relevant information Behavioural competencies Innovation Creativity Continuous Learning Self Motivation Communication Problem Solving Relationship Management CrossCultural Sensitivity Education Applicants should have recently completed, or be close to completion of a PhD in physics or optical engineering. Preference will be given to applications submitted by candidates within five years of receiving their PhD. Additional requirements Ideally, candidates should have a background in optical design as well as experimental physicsengineering. Some experience in the mechanical design, assembly, alignment and testing of optical instrumentation would be an asset. The Research Fellow must be able to work in a team with other international investigators in a spirit of positive cooperation and, at the same time, be capable of working autonomously in hisher area of research. At the end of the fellowship, the Research Fellow will be required to summarize the work completed in papers to be submitted to specialized conferencesjournals. The working languages of the Agency are English and French. A good knowledge of one of these is required. Knowledge of another Member State language would be an asset. Other information For behavioural competencies expected from ESA staff in general, please refer to the ESA Competency Framework. The Agency may require applicants to undergo selection tests. The closing date for applications is 27 December 2018. In addition to your CV and your motivation letter, please add your proposal of no more than 5 pages outlining your proposed research. Candidates must also arrange for three letters of reference to be sent by email, before the deadline, to temp.htresa.int. The letters must be sent by the referees themselves. The candidates name must be mentioned in the subject of the email. If you require support with your application due to a disability, please email contact.human.resourcesesa.int.
