[Met-jobs] PhD position in SAR remote sensing at Simon Fraser University, Canada

From Manuele Pichierri <>
Date Tue, 3 Jan 2017 12:16:37 -0800 (PST)

The Industrial Research Chair in Synthetic Aperture Radar at the School of 
Engineering Science of Simon Fraser University (SFU) is offering a 4-year PhD 
student position studying "Microwave scattering from inhomogeneously moist 
soils". The preferred starting date is summer 2017.
The overall aim of the PhD research is to provide a first quantitative 
understanding of how soil moisture causes coherent phase shifts in polarimetric 
and interferometric microwave signals, with a particular focus on the influence 
of soil moisture inhomogeneities (in the form of vertical gradients and/or 
random asperities).

Applicants are required to have, or be about to obtain, a Master degree, or 
equivalent, in electrical engineering, physics or geophysics.

Full details are in the attachment.
