Internal Research Fellow PostDoc on scientific exploitation for the SWARM mission

2018-05-15 11:26:47| Space-careers.com Jobs RSS

Research Fellowship Opportunity in the Directorate of Earth Observation Programmes. 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 on scientific exploitation for the SWARM mission This post is classified F2. Location ESRIN, Frascati, Italy Our team and mission The postholder will report to the Head of the Science Section in the Data Applications Division within the Science, Applications and Climate Department of the Directorate of Earth Observation Programmes. In the execution of the tasks, the postholder will work in close cooperation with other staff of the Directorate of Earth Observation Programmes. The Data Applications Division is a dynamic RD team leading research and development activities, in partnership with European and international industry and academia, aiming at advancing science, developing novel applications, supporting industry growth and contributing to establish an European ecosystem of exploitation platforms to maximize the impact of European missions in society. Interested candidates are encouraged to visit the ESA website www.esa.int Fields of activitiesresearch Overview of the field of research proposed The Swarm mission is designed to measure the magnetic signals that stem from Earths core, mantle, crust, oceans, ionosphere and magnetosphere. This will lead to better understanding of the processes that drive Earths dynamo, which currently appears to be weakening. By studying the complexities of Earths protective shield, Swarm will provide a clear insight into processes occurring inside the planet. Along with measurements of conditions in the upper atmosphere, a better knowledge of the nearEarth environment and the Suns influence on the planet can be realised. In particular, launched the 22nd November 2013, Swarm aims at providing an unique view inside Earth to study Core dynamics, geodynamo processes and coremantle interaction Magnetism of the lithosphere and its geological context 3D electrical conductivity related to mantle composition The weak electric currents related to ocean flow As well as to study the Suns influence on the Earth system by Analysing electric currents in the magnetosphere and ionosphere Understanding the impact of solar wind on the dynamics of the upper atmosphere Due to its very innovative concept and unique data, the full exploitation of Swarm data will require a dedicated effort to explore its full potential from both a scientific and an operational perspective. In this context, the candidate will be involved in two main activities Support the scientific and technical supervision of science projects, carried out by external teams of experts and scientists, addressing mainly ionospheric physics process understanding and characterization, enhancing models, solid earth modelling and the study of the processes and interactions between the ionosphere, the magnetosphere and the lower atmosphere. Carry out a dedicated research focusing on the scientific exploitation of the Swarm mission with special focus on fostering new science results from the new Swarm data also in synergy with other datasets. Technical competencies Knowledge relevant to the field of research Researchpublication record Ability to conduct research autonomously Breadth of exposure coming from past andor current researchactivities Interest in space and space research Ability to gather and share relevant information Behavioural competencies Innovation Creativity Continuous Learning Communication Relationship Management Self Motivation Problem Solving CrossCultural Sensitivity Education Applicants must have completed their PhD or equivalent studies in Physics, Engineering or Earth Science with research experience and peerreviewed publications in relevant topics for the fields of research proposed.
