In detail, the candidate will deal with the imagery pre-processing, and algorithm development for the generation of relevant snow parameters such as snow cover fraction, albedo, and snow grain size over the entire Alpine Arc.



  • Pre-processing of Landsat, Sentinel-2, Sentinel-3, MODIS data;
  • Snow cover identification;
  • Derivation of snow parameters (e.g. snow cover fraction, albedo, snow grain size)
  • Documentation/Report writing.



  • Master's degree in engineering or computer science or a comparable course of study;
  • Very good knowledge in programming language (python, C/C++);
  • Good knowledge of optical remote sensing;
  • Experience in large volume dataset processing;
  • Ability in team working, good communication, motivation to learn and personal initiative;
