The Position

This position is based at ESOC in Darmstadt. It is full-time and permanent and expected starting date will be around January 2021.

 

We are looking forward to meeting you!

 

Responsibilities/ Duties

You are passionate about space flight dynamics and looking for a meaningful opportunity to enfold your talents? Then you are on the right track!

We are supporting the European Space Agency with highly qualified services at the European Operations Control Centre (ESOC) in Darmstadt. For a new service position within flight dynamics division we are searching for a flight dynamics authority to complement our international service team!

You will support and execute operational tasks within the section for interplanetary missions. This includes GNC parameter monitoring, orbit determination, trajectory optimisation and command generation. Besides, you will contribute to mission planning and build related products such as mission schedules and budget calculations.

In addition, you will specify and implement improvements and additions to existing software elements for computation of the dynamical behaviour of satellites, typically on Linux workstations using C++. You will install the software on the operational platform(s) and design, coordinate and perform the testing.

Furthermore you will participate in system tests and mission simulation campaigns, contribute to space studies with the evaluation of flight dynamics aspects, and coordinate internal and external interfaces and activities across subsystems.

Detailed information on the missions and the activities of ESOC can be found on esa.int;

Qualifications / Experience

  • University degree in a relevant engineering field, astronomy, mathematics, physics or equivalent with high grades.

Essential Skills

  • The ideal candidate we are looking for contributes to our service team with the following characteristics:
  • An outstanding expertise in linear algebra, in particular for problem solving related to geometry in the Euclidean 3–dimensional space.
  • Skills in numerical methods for equations solving, integration of differential equations, function approximation and interpolation, optimisation, and linear algebra problems.
  • Proficiency in classical mechanics, including: kinematics and dynamics of point masses, dynamics of rigid bodies, dynamics expressed in non-inertial reference frames, e.g. including dynamics in rotating frames, rotation dynamics expressed in body fixed frame, conservation laws in mechanics, gravitational forces and field, orbit dynamics, Keplerian orbits and Kepler laws.
  • Ability to tackle mechanics problems via analytical mechanics methods (e.g. Lagrangian formulation).
  • Skills to apply above knowledge to develop solutions to technical problems in cooperation with customers and other experts.
  • Ability to define, implement, validate and operate software which applies the above solutions, using C++ as main programming language; knowledge of Unix/Linux, scripting languages and Fortran 77/95/2003 is a valuable asset.
  • Desire to extend technical skills.
  • A high sense of operational responsibility and good communication skills.
  • Aspiration to take operational responsibility in multi-discipline teams.
  • Fluency in English, both in speech and writing.
  • Coordinate and interact with other service providers in operations and other fields.
  • Ability to work independently.

Desirable Skills

Additional desirable skills are:

 

  • Familiarity with the ESOC environment.
  • Previous operational experience in Flight Dynamics or spacecraft missions in general.
  • Experience in MATLAB/SIMULINK, Mathematica, Scientific Python and shell scripting.
  • Experience with Linux, network services and protocols, and system administration.
  • The ability to multi-task efficiently; working on multiple activities, multiple subsystems and if applicable multiple missions simultaneously.

Furthermore, knowledge about current and planned ESA missions should be a given.
