Applications are invited for an Instrument Software Engineer within the Ocean-Bottom Instrumentation Consortium (http://www.obs.ac.uk/), who provide seabed geophysical data acquisition services for international research groups and external clients. This post will support operation of the instrumentation at sea, and ongoing and future development programmes. This is a joint recruitment of a team some of whom will have their main base in Durham and some in Southampton; all team members will at times work based at the other site.
Applicants for this post should be qualified to at least Bachelors degree or equivalent level in a relevant discipline and be prepared and able to work at sea. In particular you will be required to pass an ENG1 Seafarer’s Medical and obtain a Personal Sea Survival certificate within one month of commencement. Our expectation is that the postholder may spend up to 3 months per year at sea, and that once trained, the postholder may be expected to act as a lead engineer at sea.
You will have a track record of programming skills including experience with both C/C++ and embedded operating system tasks. You will have a thorough approach to software development, documentation, and testing. You will develop and test both real time acquisition firmware used in our data loggers and software subsequently used to process the data into industry-standard formats and to carry out primary quality control. Although primarily a software post, you will be expected to learn basic electronic skills and fault-finding to be able to operate the instruments at sea.
The post is available for 3 years in the first instance, with a possible extension thereafter. Informal enquiries can be made to
Dr Tim Henstock (tel 02380 596491, firstname.lastname@example.org ) or Prof Christine Peirce (tel 0191 334 2300, email@example.com )
