according to the German 14 TVöD
In the framework of the EU Copernicus Sentinel-5, Sentinel-4, and Sentinel-5 Precursor missions, DLR’s Remote Sensing Technology Institute plays a leading role in the development of processing systems and algorithms for the accurate determination of atmospheric composition gases like ozone, nitrogen dioxide, sulfur dioxide, formaldehyde, glyoxal, as well as aerosol and cloud properties. These algorithms are used operationally in near-real-time and off-line processing environments.
The tasks are carried out in close cooperation with national and international partners. We offer an excellent work environment and provide the opportunity to collaborate with leading scientists in the field of satellite-based atmospheric remote sensing.
We are interested in highly motivated people who deliver high quality work. The holder of the post is encouraged to present scientific results at international conferences and publish in scientific journals.
The holder of the position will be responsible for the following tasks:
Development of software systems in C++ for the retrieval of atmospheric trace gas parameters:
Implementation of software for operational 24/7 systems
Analysis and design of retrieval software for the atmospheric Sentinel missions
Further development of existing systems, particularly for the Sentinel-5, Sentinel-4, and Sentinel-5 Precursor missions
Integration of the retrieval systems in operational ground segments for data processing in near real-time and offline mode
Development and improvement of novel scientific algorithms
Research in the field ofmachine learning for retrieval algorithms
Elaboration of suitable test procedures
Documentation of the software and execution of test runs covering the following main aspects:
Documentation of software, used test procedures, and test results
Participation in test campaigns
Analysis of test data
