Vacancy: Marie Curie Experienced Research Fellow, Neustrelitz
Applications for the post of
Marie Curie Experienced Researcher in GNSS Ionospheric Research
are invited as part of an exciting Marie Curie Initial Training Network (ITN) funded by the FP7 PEOPLE Programme, entitled TRANSMIT – Training Research and Applications Network to Support the Mitigation of Ionospheric Threats.
Research will focus on the mitigation of the serious problems Earths ionosphere poses towards Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS). We are looking for an outstanding and highly motivated post doc scientist, who will contribute to the TRANSMIT project at the Institute of Communications and Navigation of the German Aerospace Center (DLR) in Neustrelitz (DLR Neustrelitz site).
The candidate will co-ordinate and assist in the implementation of software tools to generate and validate data products selected for further use at application level by associated partners. The operation of these data products will be tested under real geophysical and space weather conditions via the web based interface of the ‘Space Application Center – Ionosphere’ (SWACI) of DLR. Furthermore, the candidate will contribute developing detection and monitoring algorithms for ionospheric perturbations at different spatial and temporal scales. In particular, the candidate will contribute implementing methods to warn users before ionospheric perturbations approach a specified area.
The candidate must have an excellent knowledge in physics and mathematics as well as a profound experience in computer programming and web design. A successfully finished PhD is required. Excellent communication and team work skills are a necessity, as the candidate will co-ordinate the development of the final data products with the TRANSMIT partners.
Employment and salary follows guidelines (pdf; page 8) of the Marie Curie Action.
Please send application documents to Dr Norbert Jakowski (Norbert -dot- Jakowski -at- dlr -dot- de) and Professor Roman Galas (roman -dot- galas -at- tu-berlin -dot- de). They can also provide further information if needed.
