As part of a Research and Technology Organization (RTO), the work of the Environmental Research and Innovation (ERIN) Department tackles some of the major environmental challenges our society is facing today, such as climate change mitigation, ecosystem resilience, sustainable energy systems, the efficient use of renewable resources, and environmental pollution prevention and control. To this end, the missions of the ERIN department are:
- To conduct impact-driven scientific research and development, as well as technological innovation
- To support companies in the implementation of new environmental regulations and advise governments on determining sustainable policies for the future with the objectives of:
- Analysing, managing and exploiting sustainable resources (water, air, soil, renewable energy, bioresources)
- Reducing the environmental impact of human consumption and production activities
The successful candidate will join the Remote Sensing and Natural Resources Modelling group, one of 3 RDI groups in ERIN's Environmental Modelling and Sensing (ENVISION) unit. This unit carries out impact-driven research, geared towards monitoring, forecasting and predicting environmental systems in a changing world. She/he will be integrated into an interdisciplinary team of around 50 scientists, engineers, post-docs and PhD candidates supporting the public and private sectors by developing new process understanding, alongside new environmental management tools and technologies, operating at unprecedented spatial and temporal scales.
