The European Space Agency (ESA) Soil Moisture and Ocean Salinity (SMOS) mission carries an L-band interferometric radiometer which has the capability to measure thin ice thickness (thanks to the L-band signal penetration), as well as ice concentration, among other parameters.

Candidates for this position must have a PhD or at the level thereof and background on Physics, Mathematics or Engineering. Experience/knowledge on remote sensing and Cryospheric science is also desirable. The candidate should be self-motivated, with good writing and communication skills.
