Could you contribute to the scientific development, maintenance and quality monitoring of atmospheric products from our ultraviolet, visible, near and shortwave infrared spectrometers based on our next generation of satellite missions? EUMETSAT operates the Copernicus missions on behalf of the European Commission, providing marine and atmospheric data services to monitor climate change. To support the remote sensing activities of these missions, we are recruiting two scientists to be responsible for the development, maintenance and validation of products derived from Copernicus Sentinel4UVN and Sentinel5UVNS instruments. Your role at EUMETSAT Within this role you will support the scientific development of calibrated radiance, irradiance and derived atmospheric composition products from ultraviolet, visible, near and shortwave infrared satellite instruments. These activities will provide the opportunity to actively support operational and scientific interactions with user communities, other agencies and the European Space Agency ESA, responding to their evolving needs. You will provide scientific support to the operational implementation of data processing and products, prototyping software and providing the associated documentation. You will define, calibrate and validate the longterm monitoring activities for this suite of products, formulating future requirements as the needs of our users evolve. To be successful you should have a degree level qualification in remote sensing or another relevant discipline. Your experience in the retrieval of trace gases and other atmospheric products ultraviolet, visible, near and shortwave spectrometers should be coupled with an expertise in the use of radiative transfer models. We would expect you to have developed scientific application software, and demonstrable experience of working with user communities and researchers. You should also have experience of working in an operational data processing environment with knowledge of scientificallyoriented coding languages. You need to be organised, with an ability to understand and explain complex scientific information to your team and the user communities. What we offer We work in a collaborative, international environment which offers you a competitive salary and outstanding benefits. We offer the opportunity to work on exciting satellite programmes both current and planned. You will have the opportunity to play a leading role in the application of remote sensing science, making a difference to our user community. You will work with people who are experts in their field and will have the opportunity to establish a long career at EUMETSAT. Does this sound like you?

SRONs mission is to bring about breakthroughs in international space research. Therefore the institute develops pioneering technology and advanced space instruments, and uses them to pursue fundamental astrophysical research, Earth science and exoplanetary research. As national expertise institute SRON gives counsel to the Dutch government and coordinates national contributions to international space missions. SRON stimulates the implementation of space science in our society. SRON stimulates the implementation of space science in our society. SRON has a prominent track record in the development of Xray detector technology and space instruments. SRON, as one of the leading institutes, has contributed to the instruments of Xray mission of ESA XMMNewton, NASA Chandra and Jaxa Hitomi. The Athena Xray mission has been selected by ESA as the next Large mission. It contains two main instruments a Wide Field Imager and an Xray spectroscopy instrument XIFU Xray Integral Field Unit. The launch of Athena is foreseen in 2031. For the XIFU instrument, SRON develops the Focal Plane Assembly, which can be seen as the optical heart of the instrument. It contains a superconducting Transition Edge Sensor detector array operating at millikelvin temperatures. The pixels are readout by Frequency Division Multiplexing. The readout electronics operate at MHz frequencies and consists in essence of superconducting highQ LCfilters and SQUID amplifiers. The flight detector array is planned to be delivered by our NASA partners. Parallel to this, SRON develops the backup detector array, but with different design. Our Instrument Science Group has a vacancy for a Physicist Instrument Scientist fm vacancy number 1486 Project Outline Within a team of instrument scientist and engineers you will be responsible for testing of the detector arrays and data analysis. For this, an experimental setup exists, as well as test scripts and analysis software routines.
