Computer scientist (M/F)

To support the activities of the Planetary Aeronomy division, we are looking for a Computer scientist (M/F).

The candidate will be in charge of further developing and maintaining the software tools associated to the data pipeline of the NOMAD instrument, from Level 0 (raw uncalibrated) up to the highest level (scientific products).

These tools are a combination of C/C++, Python, Matlab programming languages. The applications will need to be run on a High Performance Computing System (HPC) available on the Space Pole.

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.

Candidate profile:

  • Bachelor or Master study – ICT option
  • A general interest in atmospheric chemistry/physics, air quality and/or geoscience is an asset

To support the activities of the ALTIUS/PICASSO team, we are looking for a SPACE PROJECT COORDINATOR (M/F)

The successful candidate will:

  • Support the project management of the ALTIUS mission at BIRA-IASB level under the supervision of the current project manager
  • Interact with ESA, BELSPO and the involved industrial partners
  • Collaborate to the development of the ALTIUS instrument
  • Promote the ALTIUS mission (via content of the ALTIUS Web portal, participation to general public events and international scientific meetings…)

The candidate will hold a master degree in Fundamental or Applied Sciences and must display an interest for the observation of the Earth by satellite remote sensing and/or for related environmental aspects.

Spontane sollicitaties

Je kan niet spontaan solliciteren voor een contractuele administratief-technische functie bij de Federale overheidsinstellingen en dus ook niet bij het koninklijk Belgisch Instituut voor Ruimte-Aeronomie (BIRA).

SELORAlle openstaande betrekkingen bij de Federale overheidsinstellingen worden namelijk bekendgemaakt en ingevuld via SELOR, het selectiebureau van de Federale overheid.
