Field laboratory specialist for earth and environmental research

Updated: 3 months ago
Deadline: 30 Sep 2023

Earth and environmental research relies on reliable field measurements of the state of the Earth and its atmosphere. The development of remote sensing datasets requires fiducial measurements of essential earth and environmental variables in the field.

You will contribute to the design and implementation of field experiments in earth and environmental research, and custom solutions for existing instruments. These experiments take place in The Netherlands and internationally, also outside Europe, and include aspects of the biosphere, hydrosphere and solid earth. Tasks include acquiring and maintaining instrumentation, developing a calibration and maintenance plan and field measurement protocols, quality assurance of measurements, and data archiving and dissemination. Further, we expect you to contribute to project acquisition in fiducial calibration and validation activities, and actively participate in activities of international field data acquisition networks. You also contribute to teaching fieldwork skills, advising students during data acquisition and processing, and open science and data sharing policies.
