The Royal Observatory of Belgium (ROB) is looking for a Research Data Scientist to join the GNSS team. The candidate should be a motivated scientist with a background in geophysics, geodesy and/or data science.

This position requires creative thinking, modelling and programming as well as leveraging machine-learning techniques to analyse diverse data sources to develop an automatic GNSS data quality monitoring system.

The developed methods will be applied to the data originating from GNSS stations of the EPOS network and will contribute to facilitating the interpretation of the computed position changes.

The successful candidate will also support ROB’s GNSS team in its operational activities, prepare scientific reports, write scientific publications, and present research results at national and international workshops and conferences.

The offered position is a full-time position, a 1-year contract with the possibility of extension. The deadline for applications is 20 February 2022.

ROB is a Belgian Federal Scientific Institute; its research and services concentrate on the Earth (space geodesy, seismology, gravimetry, time, and Earth rotation), the Sun, the planets, and the stars. Within the Department "Reference Systems and Planetology", the GNSS research group uses GNSS ((Global Navigation Satellite Systems) for reference frame maintenance, measuring ground deformations, and monitoring the amount of water vapor in the atmosphere. It also provides services to EPOS, the International GNSS Service, and EUREF.
