[Met-jobs] PhD position in remote sensing of permafrost at ETH Zurich

From Simon Zwieback <zwieback@ifu.baug.ethz.ch>
To <met-jobs@lists.reading.ac.uk>

The Earth Observation and Remote Sensing Group at ETH Zurich is seeking a PhD student who will monitor rapid permafrost degradation with TanDEM-X satellite observations. The goal of the project is to improve our knowledge of large-scale permafrost dynamics and the permafrost carbon feedback. Specifically, the objectives are to provide high-resolution (10-15 m) subsidence maps on regional to sub-continental scales, to automatically detect rapid permafrost thaw from these maps and quantify the uncertainties, and to characterize the distribution and magnitude of rapid permafrost degradation.

The successful candidate has strong analytical skills and programming experience in Matlab, Python, C/C++, or equivalent. Prior experience in working with large data sets will be highly advantageous for the project.
