Atmospheric Researcher at Asiaq Greenland Survey

Asiaq Greenland Survey announces a permanent position for an atmospheric researcher and program manager

We offer a challenging position for an atmospheric researcher and program manager at Asiaq Greenland Survey. Asiaq is leading the ClimateBasis sub-programme of the Greenland Ecosystem Monitoring programme (GEM, www.g-e-m.dk). ClimateBasis’ mission is to provide reliable data for interdisciplinary ecosystem studies that cover atmospheric, water and snow parameters in Zackenberg, Northeast Greenland since 1996, in Nuuk, Southwest Greenland since 2007, and since 2016 in Qeqertarsuaq, West Greenland. At these field sites Asiaq operates several climate stations and in recent years, a HATPRO Microwave radiometer and automated hemispherical sky cameras. The latter instrumentation provide a focus on boundary layer stability and clouds as an energy balance modulator. The researcher and programme manager is responsible for (I) ensuring continuity in the monitoring; (II) organizing and conducting field work; (III) performing and managing quality control, processing and analysis of the monitoring data; and (IV) publish the results to the scientific community and do public outreach. Collaboration with colleagues in Asiaq both technicians and academic personal, as well as international partners within GEM and beyond is essential. Developing project ideas and writing proposals will be an important component of this position.

You are an atmospheric scientist with an excellent publication record and a well-established international network. Ideally, you have experience with boundary layer research in the Arctic, including practical experience with climate/energy balance stations. It is an advantage if you have experience with microwave radiometry and the cloud/energy balance nexus. You have advanced programming skills and processing of large data amounts and database handling is natural to you. You are excited about working in an international environment within an interdisciplinary project, have Arctic field experience, are willing to travel and can imagine living in fascinating Greenland. Excellent spoken and written English is required and spoken Scandinavian an advantage. Experience with project management, research applications and public outreach is essential.
