Dear all,

The DLR Institute of Remote Sensing (Oberpfaffenhofen) is looking for a PhD candidate to work on the radiative transfer models and atmospheric remote sensing algorithms.

Research Topic:
Radiative transfer models for simulating space-borne observations 

Doctoral Fellow (DAAD Fellowship)

Job Specification:
The  institute's  Atmospheric  Processors  section  conducts  research  on atmospheric remote sensing with infrared and ultraviolet spectrometers.
Research on the mathematical and physical basics of atmospheric remote sensing  is  focused  on  radiative  transfer  modeling,  mathematics  of inversion, and electromagnetic scattering.
The new generation of hyper-spectral atmospheric composition sensors calls for enhanced physical models to better agree with spectral radiances measured  at  the  top  of  our  Earth's  atmosphere.
The  PhD-project  is committed  to  consider  in  more  detail  physical  effects  such  as  sub-pixel inhomogeneities, polarization effects, non-spherical particles etc. with the
aim  to  better  understand  the  underlying  radiative  transfer  mechanisms. The  gained  knowledge  will  then  be  shared  to  enhance  our  family  of generic  radiative  transfer  tools.
The  final  step  of  the  project is to  yield dependable  information  on  the  accuracy  of  physical  models  and  to connect this with current operational retrieval algorithms. 
A successful PhD student is expected to be in touch with leading scientific teams working on radiative transfer throughout the world.

We  are striving  to  increase  the  proportion  of  female  employees  and therefore   particularly   welcome   applications   from   women. 
Disabled applicants   with   equivalent   qualifications   will   be   given   preferential treatment.

Applications should be submitted on-line following the link above.

For additional information please don't hesitate to contact me ( or Prof. Dr. Thomas Trautmann (

Thank you!

Kind regards,

Dmitry Efremenko
