The research group Microwave Remote Sensing of the Department of Geodesy and Geoinformation of TU Wien is seeking a motivated
Project assistant in microwave remote sensing (f/m)
Reliable soil moisture and vegetation state estimates are an essential source of data for various research fields and applications, such as climate modelling, agricultural monitoring and flood and drought prediction. The Microwave Remote Sensing group conducts theoretical and applied research to improve the retrieval of soil moisture and land surface characteristics from active microwave remote sensing observations and use these to better understand land surface processes and interactions at different temporal and spatial scales. The Microwave Remote Sensing group is at the forefront of microwave remote sensing of land surface variables and consists of PhD’s, Post-Doc's and senior scientists led by Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Wagner.
To support the research work of our team, we are looking for a Project Assistant with a strong technological interest to support our activities in the field of microwave remote sensing of soil moisture and vegetation. The selected candidate will be responsible for improving existing soil moisture and vegetation algorithms especially focusing on high resolution retrievals from Sentinel-1 backscatter observations. Working with high resolution Sentinel-1 data includes big data analysis and working in a high-performance computing environment.
If this job opportunity fits your career development plans, we are looking forward to receiving your application in English (cover letter, CV, relevant publications and references) and in one single PDF file via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
Candidate selection will start on September 24th, 2020 and will continue until a suitable candidate is found. TU Wien will not refund any cost occurred in the course of an application.
