4. Marine Applications Competence Area Manager (VN18 29)

Details:

EUMETSAT is Europe’s meteorological satellite agency. Bringing together the resources of 30 member states, we observe the atmosphere and oceans from space using a system of satellites 365 days a year. Our data is vital for weather forecasts that help to protect lives and property, as well as monitoring the environment and our changing climate.

Our Marine Applications Competence Area (MA-CA) is responsible for the scientific development, maintenance, validation and quality monitoring of marine and ocean products extracted from satellite instrument chains. This influential role, Martine Applications Competence Area Manager, provides a great opportunity for an established remote sensing expert to manage the MA-CA team and its resources and to lead the development of the scientific knowledge required to support the exploitation and evolution of EUMETSAT and Copernicus instrument chains.

The ideal candidate is an experienced scientist who is an expert in the remote sensing and processing of data from relevant space-bourne marine remote sensing missions, preferably in an operational 24/7 environment. With experience of calibrating marine remote sensing instruments, developing and coding operational remote sensing software, you can initiate and lead relevant scientific studies. You must be a team player, with the ability to collaborate with your colleagues and our international partners. You must have strong analytical skills, with the ability to convey complex concepts to our user communities. Experience of writing scientific and technical documents is an advantage, along with a familiarity of the Copernicus Programme.

5. PhD student - Modeling Microbial Degradation in Soil

Projekt:

Predicting the fate of organic chemicals in natural soils is challenged by the complex interplay between the properties of the chemicals and the high spatio-temporal variability of environmental conditions in soils. This project will meet this challenge by using an advanced numerical reactive transport modeling approach to determine the influence of soil matrix properties on the microbial degradation of organic chemicals.

Your tasks:

? expanding a pore-scale model to address the specific project questions

? applying the expanded model for the simulation of the fate of bioreactive chemicals in heterogeneous soil systems

? determining the governing factors controlling effective in-situ biodegradation rates in soils

Your profile:

? Master of Science or equivalent degree in a relevant natural science or engineering subject

? Strong background in computational science

? Knowledge on computational fluid dynamics, subsurface transport processes, soil science, biogeochemistry and/or microbiology is beneficial

? Good English and communication skills

We offer:

? Top level interdisciplinary research at a research centre which enjoys an excellent reputation within Germany as well as internationally

? Excellent technical facilities

? Work in inter-disciplinary and multinational teams

? Excellent links to national and international research networks

? Support and optimal training courses by our graduate school (HIGRADE)

6. Canada Research Chair (Tier 2) in Sea Ice Modeling

The University of Manitoba invites applications for a Canada Research Chair (CRC) Tier 2, tenure-track position at the rank of assistant professor, in the area of sea ice modeling.

The Government of Canada has established the CRC program to enable Canadian universities to foster world-class research excellence. The proposed CRCs align with the University's strategic research plan that identifies Arctic System Science as a targeted area.

The successful candidate will become a member of the Centre for Earth Observation Science (CEOS;http://www.umanitoba.ca/ceos/). With more than 135 researchers, students and staff, including one Canada Excellence Research Chair and two existing CRCs (both Tier 1), CEOS is one of the most influential Arctic marine research groups in the world. CEOS’ research is supported by a purpose-built Nellie Cournoyea Arctic Research Facility; laboratories for environmental and material sciences and applied electromagnetics; the Sea-ice Environmental Research Facility (SERF); the Churchill Marine Observatory (CMO); a new costal research vessel RV William Kennedy; the CCGS Amundsen icebreaker; and numerous field stations across the Arctic. The Arctic Science Partnership (http://asp-net.org/) between CEOS, the Arctic Research Centre at Aarhus University (Denmark), and the Greenland Institute of Natural Resources provides added opportunity for networking. The Riddell Faculty is the institution’s hub for environmental and Earth System Science research and teaching, focusing on identifying and understanding processes, managing resources and assessing implications for ecosystems and human societies.
