[Met-jobs] Postdoctoral position in sea ice remote sensing in Barcelona

From Carolina Gabarro <>
Date Tue, 18 Oct 2016 15:13:51 +0200

The Barcelona Expert Center (BEC) - ICM-CSIC ( in Barcelona, Spain, invites applications for a Post Doc position on sea ice remote sensing.

This position is funded by the Spanish Research Council. The fellow will join the Cryospheric group of the BEC, and will work on developing tools and algorithms to retrieve sea ice parameters from remote sensing measurements, in particular from the SMOS radiometer data (1.4GHz). Moreover, validation activities and synergies will be performed.

The ESA SMOS mission carries an L-band radiometer (passive) which has the capability to measure thin ice thickness (thanks to its penetration), as well as ice concentration, among other parameters. 

Candidates for this position must have a PhD. and a strong background on Cryospheric science and physics of the Ice. Applications are invited from candidates with an interest in remote sensing, sea ice geophysics, and/or snow/ice hydrology. The candidate should be self-motivated, with good writing and communication skills. Additional required skills include:

  *   Experience with remote sensing datasets

  *   Some programming skills, such as in Matlab, C or Python.

  *   Knowledge of geophysics, preferably the evolving sea ice characteristics relevant to microwave passive measurements.

The expected start date is January 2017. The contract will have a duration of 1 year with possibility to extend it another year.

Enquiries and applications should be e-mailed to Carolina Gabarro (, as soon as possible, because applications should be presented before end of October. Please include a letter of intent that describes your academic and career goals as well as research interests and a complete curriculum vitae.

Best regards,

Carolina Gabarro
