Do you want to take part in shaping the future?
At the Department of Earth Science there is a vacancy for a position as a researcher in geoscience with responsibility for data management and project coordination. The position is affiliated to an externally financed project. The first 3 years of the position is financed by the project "Geo-INQUIRE (Geosphere INfrastructures for QUestions into Integrated Research)” funded by the EC-HORIZON-INFRA-2021 program. The project will enable and enhance access to key data, products, and services provided by geoscientific communities in the project (https://www.geo-inquire.eu). The successful candidate must be able to start in the position no later than October 1st 2023.
About the project/work tasks:
Geo-INQUIRE aims to overcome cross-domain barriers, especially the land-sea-atmosphere environments. It will exploit innovative data management techniques, modelling and simulation methods, developments in AI and big data, and extend existing data infrastructures. Geo-INQUIRE benefits from a unique partnership of 51 partners consisting of major national research institutes, universities, national geological surveys, and European consortia. A portfolio of over 150 Virtual Access (VA) and Transnational Access (TA, both virtual and on-site) installations will be offered to the scientific community. Geo-INQUIRE focuses on making both VA and TA interoperable and openly available for research but also providing training on usage of them.
The Department of Earth Science is in this project responsible for coordinating work related to identification, harmonization, and standardization of new assets (data, data products, software, and services - DDSS) coming from various domains such as seismology, GNSS observations, marine observations, volcano observations, tsunami observations and modelling, anthropogenic hazards, geohazards and CCUS. The Department of Earth Science is also responsible for coordination of integration of the new assets into existing research infrastructures participating in the project.
The successful candidate will be located at the Department of Earth Science and will work closely with other project partners in Europe. Frequent interactions with IT developers and other project partners in Europe are expected both through videoconferencing and through travels of shorter duration. Multidisciplinary research based on usage of data from this project and related infrastructures is envisaged to demonstrate usefulness of the e-infrastructure for science.
