Research fellowship (PostDoc) opportunity: Exploiting Earth Observation for Climate Research


An internal postdoctoral Research Fellowship is available within the ESA Climate Office on 'Exploiting Earth Observation for Climate Research' based at ECSAT, Harwell, United Kingdom.

The closing date for applications is 13 December 2018.

The suggested topics for potential research Fellows are:

    •    Developing activities common to a subset of climate projects, climate domains (Atmospheric, Land and Ocean) and their interfaces.

    •    Working with products from the various projects within the CCI portfolio (see focusing in particular on addressing key climate science questions (e.g. those posed by IPCC). This should concentrate on a combination of ECVs delivered by established and new CCI projects.

    •    Working to support cross cutting activities such as data harmonisation, product consistency assessment, uncertainty characterisation. This can involve both CCI products and those outside ESA.

    •    Working on the derivation of Climate Indicators, as identified by GCOS, and their development and promotion for an informed general public.

    While ESA encourages a wide range of proposals and can be reasonably flexible in what subjects can be covered, preference will be given to work involving ECVs delivered by projects managed directly by the ESA Climate Office.
