[Met-jobs] Postdoctoral position in GNSS reflectometry with the UCAR COSMIC Program
Apologies for the cross-posting.
I wanted to alert you to a job posting for a GNSS-R Post-Doc position in the UCAR COSMIC Program:
2016, the COSMIC Program initiated a postdoctoral fellowship program to
support and encourage the advancement and application of Global
Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) remote sensing for Earth science.
This year the COSMIC Program is making a postdoctoral fellowship
available to study issues related to the acquisition, retrieval,
utilization and validation of GNSS Reflectometry (GNSS-R) data. GNSS-R
is an expanding observational technique with the potential to observe
sea surface vector winds, soil moisture, freeze/thaw state, polar ice
extent, and sea surface topography (altimetry). The successful launch of
the NASA CYGNSS GNSS-R mission in Dec 2016 will provide a wealth of
data that can be used to improve upon GNSS-R retrieval algorithms, data
validation, and data utilization for wide-ranging applications such as
numerical weather prediction, climate and water cycle studies, and
oceanography. This fellowship program is designed to support early
career scientists who are interested in GNSS remote sensing and would
like to begin their career working within a group of scientists with
research interests ranging from new retrieval technology, space weather,
numerical weather prediction, and climate processes.
If you know any recent PhD’s with GNSS-R experience and who might be interested, would you please pass this announcement to them?
