Both research projects will focus on the analysis of time series of high-resolution SAR satellite data including interferometric analysis of data from the German TanDEM-X mission. Study sites will be the Antarctic Peninsula and other glaciated areas.

Candidates should hold a MSc degree or comparable in geodesy, geophysics, geomatics/physical geography, informatics or a related discipline. A excellent command of English language and a good working knowledge in the area of geomatics/image processing are required. Programming skills are an asset as is experience with SAR/InSAR processing, a sound glaciological knowledge or experience from glaciological fieldwork.
