Experienced Ocean Remote Sensing Scientist

The Danish Meteorological Institute (DMI) opens a permanent full time position for an experienced scientist to work with satellite surface temperature of the ocean (SST) and ice (IST) to support our remote sensing activities.

DMI is a leading European developer and producer of remote sensing products, including SST and IST products for the Arctic Ocean and the North Sea/Baltic Sea region. We are conducting extensive validation programs using ship borne radiometers and sea ice installations in Greenland. In addition, we participate in the development of new satellite missions in collaboration with the European Space Agency (ESA) and the European Organization for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites (EUMETSAT). The satellite data-derived products are critical for understanding the effects of climate change and are important inputs to weather and ocean models as well as DMIs ice service. Most of the work is carried out in projects financed through ESA, EUMETSAT, the EU’s Copernicus program and the Danish National Center for Climate Research.

You will work in close collaboration with dedicated and highly qualified scientists colleagues in the remote sensing group and colleagues from other institutions across Europe.

You will take the lead in improving the operational SST products, developing climate time series, writing peer reviewed publications and representing DMI in new research projects and in international organizations.

Main working tasks:

  • Act as Project Leader for SST and IST research projects and initiate new project applications.
  • Develop and maintain the operational SST and IST products within the Copernicus CMEMS project.
  • Lead the development and analysis of climate data records of SST and IST for the high latitude regions.
  • Ensure an increased uptake of the satellite products in DMIs ocean and atmosphere models
  • Contribute to the international SST community through participation in international collaborations and contribute to new satellite missions.
  • Participate in collecting Fiducial Reference Measurements (FRMs) of SST and IST.
Qualifications/Experience:
  • PhD degree in geophysics, engineering or similar within the field of remote sensing
  • Internationally recognized scientist with an extensive scientific publication list
  • Experience with project proposal writing and leading of research projects
  • Advanced programming skills in e.g. Fortran, Python or Matlab
  • Experience with Linux and operational applications
  • Good skills in oral and written English
  • Can work well in a team in close collaboration with your colleagues
The Research Department at DMI employs a staff of approx. 65 scientists, of which 14 are located in the remote sensing group. We have a strong international profile which is also reflected in the many nationalities here and in an English "working language".

Employment: Employment and salary will be according to the Danish Law and Agreements. It will be possible to apply for an addition to the basic salary.

DMI wants to contribute to equal opportunities for women and men, and encourage all qualified persons to apply regardless of age, gender or ethnic background.

DMI offers a flexible working week of 37 hours including a paid lunch break, and six weeks of paid vacation annually, after one year of employment.
