Post-doc SMOS / Antarctica in Grenoble

Ghislain Picard

Post-doctoral Position on “SMOS in Antarctica”, Laboratoire de Glaciologie (LGGE), Grenoble, France

Using a combination of field measurements and radiative transfer modeling, our group investigates the potential of brightness temperatures measured by passive microwave to infer information on the Antarctic climate. The Soil Moisture and Ocean Salinity (SMOS) mission provides for the first time observations in the low frequency range of microwaves (L-band, 1.4 GHz). Exploring the potential of these new data is the goal of this project funded by the French space agency (CNES) in collaboration with the CESBIO, Toulouse, France.

We are seeking to appoint a post-doctoral research scientist for 1 year to investigate these original data in Antarctica using modeling and experimental data (Dome C mainly) and satellite data.

The position will start on 1st November 2012 or not later than end of 2012.
