Computer scientist for space projects (m/v)
21 August 2018 - The Space Weather group within the Space Physics division is looking for a computer scientist to support them with space projects.
The group consists of 8 employees, physicists as well as IT specialists. They develop services related to the conditions in the near-Earth space environment (radiation belts, cosmic radiation, magnetosphere, …) and its effects on both technology (in space and on the ground) and human health related activities, such as ESA's SPace ENVironment Information System (SPENVIS, www.spenvis.oma.be).
As responsible for the IT support, you will be closely involved in space related projects, for example on behalf of the European Space Agency (ESA).
For this job opening, there are two positions available, of which one is intended for a first job agreement:
Internship “Development of a Mobile-DOAS Viewer”
The Belgian Institute for Space Aeronomy is looking for a student to develop a server with webinterface for near real-time map visualization of mobileDOAS measurements of trace gas concentrations such as NO2. This could be done in the framework of a thesis or internship.
The BIRA-IASB Aeromobil is a mobile remote sensing instrument, developed to measure trace gas concentrations which are strongly linked to air quality/pollution.
