[Met-jobs] FW: Job opportunity at UCL

From Roger Brugge <r.brugge@reading.ac.uk>
Date Sat, 7 May 2016 14:59:12 +0000

We are seeking a Research associate to work on the EU H2020 MULTIPLY project 
which aims to provide a seamless integration of different data streams coming 
from the Sentinel family of Earth Observation satellites, that results in an 
inference of land surface parameters their and associated uncertainty. The 
project is led from Leiden University, with partners around Europe. The 
Research Associate (RA) at UCL will mainly be involved with the optical 
processing chain. This includes the development of suitable models of radiative 
transfer (RT) for vegetation and soils, the creation of efficient emulator 
models of the RT models, as well as the development of efficient strategies for 
the optimal treatment of coarse and high resolution data. The RA will also be 
involved in the validation of MULTIPLY-derived products with ground data.


The post is funded in the first instance for 40 months commencing on the 1st 
June 2016.

Key Requirements


The successful candidate will need to have a Postgraduate qualification in 
remote sensing or other relevant discipline. We will consider applications from 
candidates close to PhD submission and from those that have a Masters Degree 
combined with proven relevant work experience. It is essential that they can 
demonstrate a sound understanding of relevant areas of Mathematics, in 
particular linear algebra, probability theory, Bayesian statistics and inverse 
problem theory. Also they must have experience of biophysical parameter 
retrieval and uncertainty characterization from Earth Observation (EO) data.
