[Met-jobs] Postdoctoral position in sea ice remote sensing in Barcelona

The Barcelona Expert Center (BEC) – ICM-CSIC
(http://ift.tt/2ejfpMJ) in Barcelona, Spain, invites
applications
for a Post Doc position on sea ice remote sensing.

This position is funded by the Spanish Research
Council. The
fellow will join the Cryospheric group of the BEC, and will work
on developing
tools and algorithms to retrieve sea ice parameters from remote
sensing
measurements, in particular from the SMOS radiometer data
(1.4GHz). Moreover,
validation activities and synergies will be performed.

The ESA SMOS mission carries an L-band
radiometer (passive)
which has the capability to measure thin ice thickness (thanks to
its
penetration), as well as ice concentration, among other
parameters. 

Candidates for this position must have a PhD.
and a strong
background on Cryospheric science and physics of the Ice.
Applications are
invited from candidates with an interest in remote sensing, sea
ice geophysics,
and/or snow/ice hydrology. The candidate should be self-motivated,
with good
writing and communication skills. Additional required skills
include:

  *   Experience with remote
sensing datasets

  *   Some programming skills,
such as in Matlab,
C or Python.

  *   Knowledge of geophysics,
preferably the
evolving sea ice characteristics relevant to microwave passive
measurements.

The expected start date is January 2017. The
contract will
have a duration of 1 year with possibility to extend it another
year.

Enquiries and applications should be e-mailed
to Carolina
Gabarro (cgabarro@icm.csic.es), as soon as possible, because
applications
should be presented before end of October. Please include a
letter of intent
that describes your academic and career goals as well as research
interests and
a complete curriculum vitae.

Best regards,

Carolina Gabarro
