EUMETSAT is Europe’s meteorological satellite agency - monitoring the weather and climate from space - 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
We are currently looking for an experienced Remote Sensing Scientist to join our international team of young and inspiring engineers and industry professionals, tasked with driving innovation within the Space, Satellite and Earth Observation sector.
This role is routed in the mission of EUMETSAT and will provide the opportunity to work with leading IT, Space and Earth Observation organisations and domain experts to make a positive impact on society!
The Remote Sensing and Products (RSP) Division in EUMETSAT is tasked with providing the scientific expertise required to develop, implement, validate, maintain and evolve the operational observational products for all EUMETSAT satellites and agreed third party missions, as well as establishing the user requirements for future EUMETSAT satellite programmes.
Within the Optical Imagery Competence Area (OI CA) of the division, the Remote Sensing Scientist – Optical Imagery (FCI) is responsible for the scientific support of Level-1 and Level-2 products for imagery missions, with a particular focus on the Meteosat Third Generation (MTG) Flexible Combined Imager (FCI) mission.
FCI is the successor instrument to the current SEVIRI instruments on the Meteosat Second Generation (MSG) satellites, and these FCI products will support the regional and global Numerical Weather Prediction and the Nowcasting communities across Europe well into the 2040s.
*(Level-2 products consist of geophysical properties extracted from satellite imagery data).
Advanced university degree in meteorology, atmospheric physics, physical remote sensing, or equivalent.
EUMETSAT’s role is to establish and operate meteorological satellites to monitor the weather and climate from space - 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
