Postdoc position in Wind and Cloud Remote Sensing at TU Delft
Geoscience and Remote Sensing at TU Delft
The Faculty of Civil Engineering and Geosciences of Delft
University of Technology (TU Delft) provides leading international
research and education, with innovation and sustainability as
central themes. Research and education are closely interwoven and
address societal challenges. The Faculty consists of the
departments of Transport and Planning, Structural Engineering,
Geoscience and Engineering, Water Management, Hydraulic
Engineering, and Geoscience and Remote Sensing.
The goal of the NWO-funded CMTRACE project is to provide
observational evidence and understanding of convective momentum
transport (the flux of momentum through convective motions). New
wind profiling measurements will be made through the collocation
of ground-based wind lidars and cloud radars at key locations. As
a Postdoc you will be responsible for collecting and processing
these core measurements, which will visualize winds below and
through cloud fields, with a focus on shallow convective cloud
fields. The position is for a duration of 2,5 years. Measurements
will be made at two locations: over the subtropical oceans during
the EUREC4A project (http://eurec4a.eu), and over the Netherlands
as part of the Ruisdael Observatory
(http://ruisdael-observatory.nl/). The DOE ARM facility on the
Azores will also be exploited.
Starting in December 2019, you will be responsible for the
following tasks: a) The preparation, instalment and testing of
instrumentation for deployment during the EUREC4A field campaign
and at the Ruisdael Observatory for an extended period. b)
Overseeing the measurements and optimizing scanning strategies. c)
The processing, quality checking and validation of wind profiling
measurements. d) The retrieval of wind vector and turbulent
momentum fluxes, and comparison of scanning techniques.
Do you have a strong background in remote sensing and processing
remote sensing data? Do you have experience working in the field?
Do you have a strong interest in making unique measurements, and a
willingness to solve technical problems? We greatly welcome your
Applicants should have:
Conditions of Employment
The TU Delft offers an attractive, customisable compensation and
benefits package, including a discount for health insurance and
sport memberships, and a monthly work costs contribution. Flexible
work schedules can be arranged. An International Children’s Centre
