Forwarded from CLIMLIST... The Institute for Applied Remote Sensing at the European Academy Bolzano - Italy (EURAC), dealing with environmental problems in the context of global change, is looking for an: Expert in land use / cover monitoring with high resolution remote sensing The applicant will support our team in developing and applying new operational methodologies for mapping and monitoring land cover / land use (LULC) in complex alpine regions with high resolution optical remote sensing. The work will be performed in the scope of two running EU-projects (GMES) and a regionally funded project. The applicant will also support and be partly responsible for project management. Furthermore he/she will actively publish in scientific papers, develop new project ideas and contribute to research proposals on this topic. Qualification Essential - Master or PhD in a geoscience with focus on remote sensing of land cover / land use - 2 years of work experience in scientific projects and/or operational monitoring activities with a focus on land cover / land use monitoring. - Advanced skills in image processing, data mining and machine learning based classification (e.g., Support Vector Machine, Random Forest ) of multi-temporal high resolution optical sensor images including a deep understanding of potentials and limitations of the various approaches. - Strong experience in the practical aspects of LULC projects like experimental design, ground truthing and field work - Programming skills, preferable in IDL - Team skills and good communication skills with users and other international partners - Very good English skills Desirable - Experience in project management and fundraising - Experience in publishing in scientific journals - Knowledge on complex and semi-natural landscapes ideally with a focus on the Alpine biogeographic region - Good GIS skills (ArcGIS) - Background in statistics and geostatistics - Good German and / or Italian skills We offer - An interesting, highly responsible job in a young international and interdisciplinary team - The opportunity for further qualification - State-of-the-art technical facilities (soft- and hardware, communication tools) - Access to EURAC's numerous scientific and cultural facilities and events - An attractive working place in a vivid city in the heart of the Alps with endless opportunities for skiing, hiking, climbing... The contract will start as soon as possible and will be issued for one to two years, depending on the qualification of the candidate. We are always interested in keeping good people and endeavour to offer perspectives after the end of the projects. Candidates should submit their application (CV, publication list and cover letter) until 26.04.2013 in digital form (PDF) to the address below. Don't hesitate to contact us for any further questions!
