Senior Scientist in Computational Ecology and/or Remote Sensing

Organisation: University of Leipzig

University of Leipzig's Faculty of Physics and Earth Sciences seeks to fill this position at the earliest opportunity.

The Faculty is preparing to establish a Remote Sensing Centre for Earth System Research to expand research in this area and better understand ecosystems in a changing world. The newly established lab Modelling Approaches in Remote Sensing (from 1 April 2020) is looking for a creative individual who shares their overarching interests in ecosystem functioning across scales. They particularly seek to complement their team with expertise in the following fields:

  • Remote sensing approaches from regional to global scales (e.g. via joint interpretation of heterogeneous data streams, innovative measurements such as SIF, or data-cube approaches).
  • Data-driven research (e.g. via state-of-the-art machine-learning, multidimensional analytics, spatiotemporal statistics, extreme event detection and attribution, or causal inference).
  • Joint interpretation of in-situ observations and Earth observation (e.g. proximal and satellite remote sensing, or long-term ecological research data and EO).
