The Institut für Geographie of the Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg is looking for a
within the German Research Foundation (DFG) project „A stochastic estimate of sea level contribution from glaciers and ice caps using satellite remote sensing“. The project is embedded in the DFG Priority Program (SPP) “Regional Sea Level Change and Society (SeaLevel)”. The successful candidate will process and analyse TanDEM-X satellite imagery from different regions as well as other remote sensing elevation products in regard to surface elevation changes and geodetic glacier mass balances of glaciers. Our group has developed processing chains for TanDE;-X satellite data that enable fast processing of larger data volumes. The candidate is expected to further refine and advance these routines in the framework of the project and apply the techniques to different regions. A close interaction and technical support of PhD students as well as other PostDocs working in related projects is anticipated. She/he will be responsible for the data ordering and analysis, archiving and exchange of project results with national and international project partners as well as reporting and presentation of project results at SPP workshops, conferences and in peer reviewed journals.
The employment is limited to 24 months due to availability of external project funds with a possibility of extension depending on additional third-party funding. The employment is full time with 100% of the regular working load. Depending on qualification and personal requirements this position is grouped into Entgelt-/Bes.Gr. E13.
The Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg is seeking to augment the number of women in research and teaching and hence asks female scientists in particular to apply for this position. Handicapped persons will be preferred in case of equal ability and qualifications. If desired, a member of the equal opportunity office of FAU can participate in the selection process without any disadvantage for the applicant.
Please submit your full applications including CV, certificates, motivation letter, contact details of 2 persons of reference as one single PDF-file to email@example.com (reference: TDX elevation change).
Deadline for application: as soon as possible, position is open until filled
