Forwarded from CLIMLIST... Ph.D. position in Earth Observation The Remote Sensing Laboratories at the Department of Geography, University of Zurich invite applications for a Ph.D. position in the wider area of Earth observation, to work on developing new approaches in quantitative, global scale land surface process monitoring. In particular, the position will focus on long-term vegetation trend analysis and their coupling into process models for estimates of Net Primary Production (NPP) and carbon cycling. The position will use experimental and computational methods such as spatio-temporal modelling, and trend analysis, amongst others. The Ph.D. will continue developing methods as discussed in <http://dx.doi.org/10.1111/j.1365-2486.2011.02578.x> and <http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.rse.2010.10.011>. The successful applicant will be based in Zurich and supervised by Michael Schaepman (<http://www.geo.uzh.ch/en/units/rsl/about-us/staff/schaepman-michael>) and Reinhard Furrer (<http://user.math.uzh.ch/furrer/>) as well as Mathias Kneubühler and Rogier de Jong (daily supervision). The Remote Sensing Laboratories (RSL) host several research groups working on a variety of topics related to land surface processes, including the use of SAR, LIDAR and imaging spectroscopy based approaches. For more information, see <http://www.geo.uzh.ch/en/units/rsl>. Upon start, applicants must have a completed masters degree in remote sensing or any related science field, preferably with a certain degree of specialization in remote sensing. Applicants must be able to pursue data-oriented computational research (modelling) as well as experimental approaches. Literacy in programming languages is an asset. A good standard of written and spoken English is required. We are looking for a highly motivated, enthusiastic and independent person with a passion for science to join our team. We offer outstanding working conditions, a high quality of life in Zurich, and an excellent supporting environment. Please send your application as one single PDF file (motivation letter, complete CV, and names of 2 references) to Rita.Ott@geo.uzh.ch, no later than April 10, 2012. For further questions, please contact Rogier.DeJong@geo.uzh.ch or Michael.Schaepman@geo.uzh.ch. University of Zurich Department of Geography
