This vacancy is for a scientist to join the staff at the EISCAT Headquarters in Kiruna, Sweden.

The position is with the scientific team that interacts with the users regarding planning, operation of campaigns, and data interpretation. The EISCAT scientists also monitor the overall operations and validate the resulting data‐products.

For this position, the candidate will also take an important role in the recently started European Union Framework H2020‐funded project PITHIA‐NRF. This project relates to integrating and opening access to research infrastructures of European interest. Tasks relate to outreach and supporting users coming to the facilities to perform campaigns within the Transnational Access (TNA) part of the project.

The work includes both travel between the EISCAT sites and international travel to interact with EISCAT’s user community. The Staff Scientist will also have the opportunity to perform some personal research.

Applicants should have completed a relevant recent Ph.D. in Geospace or atmospheric science. They must also have some experience in advanced scientific computing, and knowledge of radar technology and analysis is an advantage. An ability to communicate effectively in spoken and written English is essential.

The Staff Scientist initial employment term is for two years, with an anticipated possibility of transferring into a regular staff position thereafter. The employment terms are comparable to Swedish state employment rules.

The affiliation is with EISCAT Headquarters in Kiruna, Sweden and the primary work location will also be in Kiruna. A secondary work location, either at one of the other EISCAT sites, or at some other location, including a home‐office, can be negotiated.
