The Center for Remote Sensing of Land Surfaces (ZFL), University of Bonn, Germany, offers a position for a postdoctoral research fellow in Remote Sensing starting from 1st October 2017. The position is limited to 1 year, with the possibility of prolongation. The research associate will be employed in the interdisciplinary project “GlobalDrought” led by the University of Bonn. The project aims to develop a global drought information system to characterize drought events and their impact on water resources, crop productivity, food trade, food security and the demand for international food aid.

About ZFL:
ZFL is a well-known interdisciplinary center of the University of Bonn dedicated to research and teaching in the fields of Remote Sensing, Geo-information sciences and spatial modelling. We are an interdisciplinary and international team with members of various backgrounds, working on subjects related to applied Remote Sensing and Geo-information. ZFL has a modern and well-equipped laboratory available for research activities. ZFL runs research projects and supports teaching programs at the University of Bonn and beyond. More information on our center could be found here: www.zfl.uni-bonn.de.

Main tasks & responsibilities:

  • Research on Remote Sensing based drought indices for the project’s case study studies.
  • Product derivation (or improvement of existing products) of vegetation parameters’ (LST and LAI) from optical satellite data for crop yield modeling.
  • Research on assimilation of vegetation parameters to the process-based crop yield model.
  • Communication and active cooperation with the project partners and potential stakeholders.
  • Undertake short field visits to the project case study areas.
  • Support supervision of PhD, MSc, and BSc students in the context of the project.

Required skills and competences:

  • Doctoral degree (or equivalent work experience) in Remote Sensing or Geomatics.
  • Excellent understanding of principles in Remote Sensing as well as skills in handling and processing of Remote Sensing and GIS data; an experience with agronomic modelling is an advantage.
  • Sound programming skills (R, Python etc.) for spatial application.
  • Publication record in international peer-reviewed scientific journals.
  • Excellent English skills, German language is of advantage.
  • Excellent communication skills and team-oriented attitude in a collaborative environment

Please submit your application (in English) with reference number 2017/GlobDrought, containing a cover letter, statement of research interests (2 pages maximum), curriculum vitae with list of publications, copies of diplomas in one PDF document and by e-mail to Ellen Götz zfl@uni-bonn.de. Deadline for applications 21st August 2018. For questions related to the offered position, please, contact Dr. Olena Dubovyk odubovyk@uni-bonn.de.
