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.
Radiative transfer models for simulating space-borne observations
Doctoral Fellow (DAAD Fellowship)
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.
