Job description

Satellite Sensor Calibration Scientist

Work Location: College Park, MD
Job Code: 1658


Position Description

Will support NOAA JPSS Advanced Technology Microwave Sounder (ATMS) Calibration and Validation.  ATMS operates in conjunction with the CrIS to profile atmospheric temperature and moisture. Higher (spatial, temporal and spectral) resolution and more accurate sounding data from CrIS and ATMS support continuing advances in data assimilation systems and Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP) models to improve short- to medium-range weather forecasts. The selected candidate will develop limb correction techniques to produce ATMS TOR products into imaging products for NWS applications and deliver ATMS TOR limb corrected imagery products at various resolutions.

Required Skills

3+ years of working experience in microwave instrument calibration/validation. Experience with FORTRAN, C/C++, IDL, Python, Perl, and JAVA in a Unix/Linux environment. Experience with limb correction techniques to produce imagery at various resolutions. Experience with common data formats such as netCDF and HDF. Knowledge of radiative transfer is preferred.

Must be able to pass a background investigation to obtain a security badge to enter the applicable government facility.


PhD in atmospheric science, physical science or engineering, related discipline, or equivalent.
