The Helmholtz Alliance of Earth System Dynamics aims at the development 
of innovative remote sensing products based on the newest satellite 
missions. The focus here is on quantifying dynamic processes within the 
bio-, hydro-, geo- and cryosphere to monitor and understand 
environmental change on a global scale.

The Alliance will be the nucleus within an innovative network of more 
than 60 internationally renowned research institutions. At the Helmholtz 
Centre for Environmental Research - UFZ alone, 4 PhD students will be 
working on respective topics.

The successful candidate should hold a master/diploma in Earth Sciences 
or Physics. He/she has strong computational skills (C, R, IDL) and 
remote sensing experience. The responsibilities of the post will involve 
i) successfully combine remote sensing data of different sensor types 
(hyperspectral and radar), ii) derive robustly bio-physical plant 
variables, iii) up-scaling of remote sensing products via radiative 
transfer and/or eco-physiological models. Basic statistical and/or 
knowledge of plant physiology are of a strong advantage. Working 
language will be English.

Best regards,

Daniel Doktor
