PhD position in remote sensing of sea ice at DLR (German Aerospace Center), Bremen, Germany
PhD Candidate Part Time (0,5 TVöD 13)
In the framework of a DFG research project, the Remote Sensing Technology Institute, German Aerospace Center is looking for a motivated PhD candidate for a period of 3 years starting from January 2020.
The position is funded by the DFG project “Understanding snow and sea ice properties at microwave frequencies for remote sensing applications during MOSAiC (MOSAiCmicrowaveRS)”. MOSAiCmicrowaveRS will develop new and improve current methods to derive sea ice properties from microwave observations, in particular ice type and lead distribution from SAR and snow properties and ice type from microwave radiometers. The project is part of the international consortium of the Multidisciplinary drifting Observatory for the Study of Arctic Climate (MOSAiC) and will provide an extensive opportunity of international collaborations. The PhD thesis will be supervised by Dr. Suman Singha (DLR) and Dr. Gunnar Spreen (Institute of Environmental Physics, University of Bremen).
- Master’s degree in the field of computer science, physics, mathematics, electrical engineering or similar.
- Very good Programming skill in Python and others such as IDL, C++ or similar.
- Very good English language skills
- Willingness to travel and research stays at collaborative institutes
- Basic knowledge in Earth observation, ideally with synthetic aperture radar (SAR)
- Knowledge in the field of artificial intelligence and machine learning.
