In addition, the successful candidate will also assist in the daily operation of CAO by participating in the scheduled maintenance of CAO equipment, including handling of environmental samples and logistics of stock (consumables).
In addition, CyI is currently finalizing the siting of a fully functional BSRN station at the PROTEAS facility at Pentakomo, and aims to be established as a full member of the BSRN network. The BSRN is a radiometric network initiated by the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP) to support the climate research by providing validation material for satellite radiometry and climate models. The objective of the BSRN is to provide observations of the best possible quality for short and long-wave surface radiation fluxes with a high sampling rate, which are believed to play an important role in climate change modelling.
The successful candidate will be also acting as the PROTEAS’ BSRN station scientist and will be responsible for:
