Coding physical atmospheric models and remote sensing algorithms


INTRODUCTION In the frame of the EUMETSAT Radio Occultation Meteorology Satellite Application Facility (ROM SAF), the IEEC has committed to deliver a series of updates to the official ROM SAF Radio Occultation Processing Package (ROPP) software http://www.romsaf.org/ropp/.

INTRODUCTION In the frame of the EUMETSAT Radio Occultation Meteorology Satellite Application Facility (ROM SAF), the IEEC has committed to deliver a series of updates to the official ROM SAF Radio Occultation Processing Package (ROPP) software http://www.romsaf.org/ropp/. This software is used worldwide at meteorological services and research centres to process, model and analyze radio occultation events of the Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS). These events occur when a transmitter of the GNSS (such as for example, a GPS satellite) sets behind the Earth as seen from another satellite, at a lower orbit, which carries a GNSS receiver (e.g. EUMETSAT's Metop http://www.eumetsat.int/website/home/Satellites/CurrentSatellites/Metop/index.html or NOAA's COSMIC constellations http://www.cosmic.ucar.edu/). These data sets are operationally used in weather forecast models and in space weather models, as they carry valuable information about the atmosphere and the electron content of the ionosphere. EMPLOYMENT TYPE This offer is for a full time position during one year (renewable to two years). The job will be carried out between the ICE-CSIC/IEEC (Campus UAB) and the UPC/IEEC (campus UPC) sites of the IEEC units. The job offers the unique opportunity to work within an international collaboration in relationship with scientists from leading weather services, in a dynamic research environment, and with chances to travel. The tasks to be performed are mostly based on the adaptation of existing codes into the ROPP package. Some new development might also be possible. SELECTION CRITERIA We seek for a person with a physics, mathematics or engineering degree with experience in programming languages such as Fortran90 and C, as well as familiar with the autotools environment. We seek for an independent person with capability to learn by him/herself. A reasonable high level of English (oral, reading and writing) is required to enable the collaboration with our ROM SAF partners and to write documentation when required. CONTACT AND DEADLINE Interested candidates are invited to contact Dr. Estel Cardellach (estel at ice.csic.es ) sending a CV and a cover letter explaining the reasons of interest in this job as well as the contact information of former employers/bosses and/or professors who could give us references about the candidate's performance. The deadline to receive applications is April 30, 2017.

Within the framework of AHEAD [1], a project funded within the Horizon 2020 program of the European Commission, we have an immediate opening for a postdoctoral research position in experimental high-energy astrophysics. Job description The next major gamma-ray space observatory will most likely carry a large telescope optimized for the simultaneous detection of Compton and pair-producing gamma-ray events over a large bandpass (from ~100 keV to several GeV). Such an instrument concept is currently studied both in Europe and in the United States for mission proposals to ESA [2,3] and NASA [4]. Although the instrument schemes studied by the US and European teams are similar, some differences exist between the two proposals. The successful postdoctoral candidate will lead a research effort to find the optimal instrument design from detailed simulations with dedicated software tools like MEGAlib [4]. He/she will perform a systematic study of the instrument performance, both in the Compton and the pair-production domains, as a function of the characteristics and geometrical arrangement of the telescope elemental detectors. Requirements Applicants should hold a PhD or equivalent in Physics or Astronomy, and good knowledge of programming is highly desirable. Previous experience in experimental gamma-ray astronomy would be advantageous and highly appreciated. Conditions of employment This is a fixed-term appointment funded for twenty months from date of hire. The successful applicant will work for ten months at the Institute of Space Sciences ICE (CSIC-IEEC) in Barcelona (supervision: Margarita Hernanz), and ten months at the Centre de Sciences Nucléaires et de Sciences de la Matière CSNSM (CNRS, Université Paris Sud) in Orsay (supervision: Vincent Tatischeff). Salary will be indexed within the wage tables of the Spanish CSIC and French CNRS, with a global gross salary of about 27,000 EUR for ten months in each country. Application Applications must be submitted electronically to Margarita Hernanz hernanz@ice.csic.es and Vincent Tatischeff vincent.tatischeff@csnsm.in2p3.fr; they should include a single PDF file containing a CV, publications list, and statement of research interests. In addition, please request two reference letters be sent directly to the above email addresses. The deadline for application is December 31st, 2016. [1] AHEAD (Integrated Activities in the High Energy Astrophysics Domain) is an ongoing project approved in the framework of the European Horizon 2020 program (Research Infrastructures for High Energy Astrophysics) – see http://ahead.iaps.inaf.it/ [2] “The e-ASTROGAM gamma-ray space mission”, V.

The Observational Cosmology and Extragalactic astrophysics group (maia.ice.cat/cosmology-ice/) at the Institute of Space Science (ICE) in Barcelona (www.ice.cat) seeks to appoint one Postdoctoral Fellow.    Our group participates actively in several cosmological projects. We have a leading role in the development of end-to-end simulations for the ESA/Euclid mission (euclid-ec.org), as well as in scientific pipelines for major astronomical surveys: the data analysis of the ongoing DES (darkenergysurvey.org) and PAUS (paucam.pic.es) surveys, and the preparation of the future ESA/Euclid, DESI (desi.lbl.gov) and LSST (www.lsst.org) missions.  We are also very active in the field of n-body simulations through the MICE project (http://maia.ice.cat/mice/), and in the theoretical modeling of the large-scale structure observables.   We are currently focused in the data analysis of DES, corresponding to the first year of observations (out of 5). We lead contributions to the large-scale structure (LSS) analysis (e.g. Baryon Acoustic Oscillations, Redshift Space Distortions), photometric redshift estimates including clustering redshifts, cross-correlations with CMB lensing and combination of LSS and Weak Lensing. We are also taking, reducing and analysing early PAUS data which will continue to become available through 2017 and beyond. This represents further opportunities for photo-z, galaxy clustering and weak lensing analysis. Galaxy mock catalogues, based on full n-body simulations or approximate methods, and science pipelines for Euclid / DES / PAUS and DESI are also being developed locally.     We are seeking candidates with interest and relevant experience to contribute and benefit from these projects. The candidate will also be encouraged to pursue her/his own research interests.   The initial appointment is for up to 2 years depending on starting date,  with possible extensions subject to funding. The starting date is flexible although early 2017 is highly preferable. Applications received before December 15th 2016 will receive full consideration, but the selection process will continue until the position is filled.    The group consist of four senior members (F. Castander, M. Crocce, P. Fosalba and E. Gaztanaga), two postdocs (Linda Blot and Kwan Chuen Chan), four PhD students and three engineers (Santiago Serrano, Martin Folger and Ricard Casas).    To apply, please send a CV, a brief research proposal (2-3 pages), and 3 recommendation letters to crocce@ice.cat
