Scientific Programmer in Remote Sensing
Description of UZH unit
The Remote Sensing Laboratories, University of Zurich (UZH) are looking for a scientific programmer to work on two concurrent projects ARES (Airborne Research Facility for the Earth System) and MetEOC-3. Within the ARES framework the new airborne imaging spectrometer is being developed. The MetEOC-3 project focusses on the calibration and uncertainty of remote sensing instruments. MetEOC-3 is led by the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) of the United Kingdom.
Work within these two projects will involve: (a) adding support ARES instruments to the existing Calibration Information System, (b) design and implementation of a software for the interfacing of airborne imaging spectrometers with a new calibration source (STARS) from NPL, (c) writing a software simulation for the calibration of imaging spectrometers with STARS, (d) designing and implementing the support for the treatment of uncertainties in the spectral information system SPECCHIO. The position will require interaction with international organisations.
We are looking for a highly motivated, enthusiastic and independent person with a passion for science to join our team.
To apply, all applicants must have a completed master’s or PhD degree in either, remote sensing, physics, computer science or a closely related science field.
A high standard of written and spoken English is mandatory.
Applicants must be proficient in programming languages (Matlab, Java) and databases (MySQL). Experience in working with web services (Glassfish, Jersey), Git, and analysing spectral data is an asset, but not required.
