The Barcelona Expert Center (BEC) – ICM-CSIC
(http://ift.tt/2ejfpMJ) in Barcelona, Spain, invites
for a Post Doc position on sea ice remote sensing.
This position is funded by the Spanish Research
fellow will join the Cryospheric group of the BEC, and will work
tools and algorithms to retrieve sea ice parameters from remote
measurements, in particular from the SMOS radiometer data
validation activities and synergies will be performed.
The ESA SMOS mission carries an L-band
which has the capability to measure thin ice thickness (thanks to
penetration), as well as ice concentration, among other
