LSE Space is looking for an experienced EUROCOM Operations Engineer (m/f) in order to provide support to the European Astronaut Center in Cologne/Germany.
Communications between the in-orbit crew and the ground control teams are essential to the success of any space mission. In order to streamline the exchange of information, only one person in a control center, is assigned to interface with the crew in space. Within ESA, the person in charge of communicating with the crew of the International Space Station (ISS) for any Columbus related issue is called “EUROCOM”.
The EUROCOM Operations Engineer is a member of the EUROCOM Team, which is based at the European Astronaut Centre (EAC) in Cologne, Germany.
As a member of the Columbus Flight Control Team (FCT) for ISS Operations, the EUROCOM carries out his/her operational activities either from the Columbus Control Centre (COL-CC) in Oberpfaffenhofen or from EAC.
The EUROCOM Team supports operations in shifts on a 16/7 basis, where the exact timing of the shifts heavily depends on the on-board schedule of the International Space Station crew. This implies availability to work shifts (either on console or on-call) outside of office hours and/or during week-ends and public holidays.
Work Location: Cologne, Germany
