2018-05-15 11:26:47| Space-careers.com Jobs RSS

Research Fellowship Opportunity in the Directorate of Earth Observation Programmes. ESA is an equal opportunity employer, committed to achieving diversity within the workforce and creating an inclusive working environment. Applications from women are encouraged. Post Internal Research Fellow PostDoc on EO missions for Geohazards applications This post is classified F2. Location ESRIN, Frascati, Italy Our team and mission The postholder will report to the Head of the Enterprise Section in the Data Applications Division within the Science, Applications and Climate Department of the Directorate of Earth Observation Programmes. In the execution of the tasks, the postholder will work in close cooperation with other staff of the Directorate of Earth Observation Programmes. The Data Applications Division is a dynamic RD team leading research and development activities, in partnership with European and international industry and academia, aiming at advancing science, developing novel applications, supporting industry growth and contributing to establish an European ecosystem of exploitation platforms to maximize the impact of European missions in society. Overview of the field of research proposed There is considerable interest in the application of state of the art EO based analysis techniques to the Disaster Risk Management DRM domain. The principal risk areas addressed include geohazards earthquakes, landslides, volcanism, subsidence and hydrometeorological hazards such as flooding. In the domain of geohazard risks, there is important scope to develop innovative uses of terrain motion techniques based on Optical imagery e.g. feature detection, recognition and tracking with precise image correlation and Radar imagery e.g. interferometric processing of Synthetic Aperture Radar data. These developments make use of novel approaches enabled by advances in ICT capabilities such as for instance high performance Cloud based computing and machine learning. ESA Research Development activities in this domain are generally conducted in support of international collaborations such as CEOS WG Disasters including the ESA originated Geohazards Lab initiative. Interested candidates are encouraged to visit the ESA website www.esa.int Fields of activitiesresearch The candidate will be involved in the following activities Support the supervision of current and future ESA data exploitation projects related to geohazard science. Primary focus is on terrain motion mapping using both Optical and SAR interferometric InSAR data with both heritage missions ERS, Envisat, new ESAEC missions Sentinel1 2 and third party missions ALOS12, CosmoSymed, TerraSARX that are of direct relevance to the geohazards science community. Participate to relevant ESA activities engaging science users such as e.g. FRINGE, CEOS WG Disasters, etc. Support validation activities and scientific animation addressing hosted processing tools and new EO based processing chains with a focus on Cloud processing environments such as the Geohazards Exploitation Platform GEP originated by ESA in the context of the ESA Thematic Exploitation Platforms TEP and within the CEOS WG Disasters. This includes support to the scientific promotion of techniques using Sentinel1 e.g. advanced InSAR and Sentinel2 e.g. image correlation techniques and dedicated demonstration activities. Contribute to the definition of requirement for the evolution of the GEP in the context of the CEOS WG Disaster Elaborate and test the definition of methods to harmonize access and use of EO data and associated tools and processing chains with the aim to achieve a better scientific understanding of precise terrain motion measurements and collaborate with relevant scientific initiatives e.g. the Geohazard Supersites Natural Laboratories, the Geohazards Lab initiative within CEOS to help achieve better acceptance and adoption of satellite EO As a dedicated research project, elaborate and test the definition of new methods combining EO data with non EO data and modelling to address scientific requirements from relevant scientific networks in the geohazards domain. Technical competencies Knowledge relevant to the field of research Researchpublication record Ability to conduct research autonomously Breadth of exposure coming from past andor current researchactivities Interest in space and space research Ability to gather and share relevant information Behavioural competencies Innovation Creativity Continuous Learning Communication Relationship Management Self Motivation Problem Solving CrossCultural Sensitivity Education Applicants must have completed their PhD or equivalent studies in Physics, Engineering or Earth Science with research experience and peerreviewed publications in relevant topics for the fields of research proposed. In particular, the candidate shall demonstrate to be familiar with the use of Optical and Synthetic Aperture Radar data for geohazard risks and in particular with EO based terrain motion mapping. Additional requirements Experience with computing programing and image processing tools and software will be an asset. Applicants should have good analytical and communication skills and should be able to work in a multicultural environment in an autonomous manner. The working languages of the Agency are English and French. A good knowledge of one of these is required. Knowledge of another Member State language would be an asset. Preference will be given to applications submitted by candidates within five years of receiving their PhD. Other information For behavioural competencies expected from ESA staff in general, please refer to the ESA Competency Framework. The Agency may require applicants to undergo selection tests. The closing date for applications is 11 June 2018. In addition to your CV and your motivation letter, please add your proposal of no more than 5 pages outlining your proposed research in the additional documents field of the application information section. Candidates are asked to arrange for 3 reference letters, to be sent by the referees themselves, before the closing date to temp.htresa.int. Please ensure your name is mentioned in the subject of the email. If you require support with your application due to a disability, please email contact.human.resourcesesa.int.
