Programmer / Software Engineer for EISCAT_3D work

EISCAT Scientific Association is seeking a Programmer / Software Engineer for EISCAT_3D system integration work EISCAT_3D is a modern, multi-static, phased array radar system to be deployed in Finland, Norway, and Sweden. The implementation phase started 1 September 2017 and the system will be ready for use in 2021. As Programmer / Software Engineer, you will work in the software team planning and writing the code needed to integrate hardware into the overall EISCAT_3D system. The software interfaces are well defined API’s provided by the contracted vendors supplying the hardware. EISCAT develops the overall system control for EISCAT_3D and the initial tasks for the Programmer / Software Engineer relate much to plan, code and verify the interfacing between vendor provided hardware and EISCAT’s own software platform. The EISCAT_3D system will be remote controlled in real time and the data will be processed in high throughput on-site cluster computers and transferred to one or more central archives. The development of the control and...

International Summer School

International Summer School on "Data Management in Environmental and Earth Science Infrastructures: theory and practice" Are you a Ph.D. student, post-doctoral researcher or data management staff working in the relevant international research infrastructures? Don't miss this opportunity to get a unique insight into the contemporary debate on Data Management in the environmental and earth sciences. In recent years, one of the major challenges in the Environmental and Earth Science has been managing and searching ever larger volumes of data, collected across multiple disciplines. The ENVRIplus project investigated a collection of more than 20 representative environmental research infrastructures (RIs) from different areas. By examining these research infrastructures and their characteristics, a common data lifecycle was identified. The data lifecycle is structured in five phases: Data Acquisition, Data Curation, Data Publishing, Data Processing and Data Use. Many different standards, approaches, and tools have been developed to support the Data Lifecycle. In particular, modern semantic technologies provide a promising way to properly describe and interrelate...
