Position: Research Fellow - Radar Remote Sensing
Institution: University College London
Department: Centre for Polar Observation and Modelling
Location: London, United Kingdom
Duties: The objective of this position will to better quantify the sensitivity of snowpack properties on the radar scattering horizon and penetration depths. An unprecedented set of radar data at Ku- and Ka-band will be collected during MOSAiC, allowing for better understanding of the seasonal evolution of snowpack properties on radar returns. Key will be to evaluate results as a function of ice type (i.e. first-year vs. multiyear), snow pack brine content, temperature and density
Requirements: Candidates will have a PhD, or thesis submitted subject to examination, in physics, meteorology, oceanography or a related field. Experience in remote sensing and/or climate modelling, and a good knowledge of climate physics and dynamics with a focus on snow and/or sea ice is essential. Excellent knowledge of scientific programming and good English skills are also essential. The candidate will expected to disseminate results in peer-reviewed scientific journals and at international conferences
