Two Earth Observation job opportunities at Plymouth Marine Laboratory, UK

The Plymouth Marine Laboratory has two new job opportunities for Earth Observation scientists ranging from junior to senior scientist grade.

1) Earth Observation Research and Development Support
Grade: Scientist (£29,874 - £35,346) or Junior Scientist (£22,404 - £27,165)
Appointment: 3 year Full Time Appointment with anticipation of extension to open-ended
Closing Date: 15 Dec 2017
Location: Plymouth Marine Laboratory (UK)

PML is looking for a dynamic, remote-sensing scientist to work on a number of new international research and development projects in the PML Earth Observation science group. The projects focus on developing satellite data analysis and processing methods for monitoring water quality in inland, coastal and transitional water bodies from the regional up to the global scale, for operational data processing for research (e.g. climate change studies) and applications (e.g. aquaculture, global monitoring of lakes and coastal seas). The work involves using medium (300m) and high-resolution (10m) optical satellite data in a high-performance computing environment. As part of a team working on inland and coastal water quality remote sensing you will contribute to comparative analysis of Earth Observation scientific methods including different sensors, configurations, and atmospheric and biogeochemical retrieval algorithms for water, data processing, data management, statistical analysis, scientific reporting (oral, written) and presentation of results.

2) Earth Observation Scientist
Open-ended Appointment
Senior Scientist: (£37,183 - £42,625) or Scientist (£29,874 - £35,346)
Closing Date: 15 Dec 2017
Location: Plymouth Marine Laboratory (UK)

PML is looking for a dynamic, mathematically-inclined remote-sensing scientist who will work on developing, testing and implementing novel algorithms for using satellite data to study pools and fluxes of carbon in the ocean. The post-holder will also interface with ecosystem modellers to compare satellite products with model outputs. The scientist will be working on a major international project dedicated to the study of biogeochemical cycles in the ocean, in the context of climate change. The scientist will work in a team led by Shubha Sathyendranath and Trevor Platt.
