CNRS has recently joined the Climat Monitoring group (CM) of the EUMETSAT agency Satellite Application Facilities (SAF). CM-SAF is a European consortium with 9 partners dedicated to the monitoring of global climate from satellite observations with emphasis on the water and energy cycle (http://www.cmsaf.eu ). CNRS is responsible for the “Global Precipitation” project that aims at documenting, at global scale, liquid and solid precipitation at the surface of the globe at the 1° 1 day resolution over the last 20 years.
To reach this goal, data from microwave imagers and sounders are resolved in instantaneous precipitation estimate (so called level 2 data) and are merged with infrared observations obtained from geostationary platforms to produce daily accumulation estimates (so called level 4 data). The project involves the LEGOS laboratory, the IPSL Institute on the CNRS side and a team from DWD (German met services, member of the consortium). The DWD team is in charge of the level 2 developments and CNRS is responsible for the level 4. Operationnal production is realized by DWD as well.
We are seeking a research engineer to help us with this project.
The hired person will be on one hand, in direct contact with the project and its management and on the other, will contribute to the writing of scientific articles.
The activities of the engineer will concern the development of research code and the design of metrics to quantify and assess the consistency of the global precipitation estimates with the others elements of the water and energy cycle.
PhD in Environnement Sciences or Engineering diploma. An experience with satellite observation data is a plus.
Robust background in engineering.
Good level in computer sciences.
Programming with IDL, Fortran or C.
Work under Linux environnement.
Data format: HDF, Netcdf.
Very good English skill is required
The position is located at the LEGOS laboratory in l'Observatoire Midi Pyrénées in Toulouse.
The selected person will work in a small research group and will interact with other research engineers phd students and CNRS researcher as well as with the european project team.
This position requires to participate to the meetins of the CMSAF project in Europe as well as participation to international conferences.
