PhD research fellowship: Satellite remote sensing and spatial data science

U bent hier

Applications are invited for a 3-year PhD research fellowship position in satellite remote sensing at NILU - Norwegian Institute for Air Research, in association with the Department of Geosciences at the University of Oslo, Norway. The candidate's research activities will be based at NILU while the formal PhD program will be carried out at the University of Oslo. The fellowship requires admission to the PhD program at the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences.

The research will focus on the synergistic exploitation of atmospheric satellite remote sensing data (e.g. from Sentinel-5P) by combining them with other suitable datasets (e.g. from low-cost sensor networks or dispersion models), with the goal of contributing to improved societal relevance of the underlying data. The research will combine techniques from satellite remote sensing with elements from statistics, spatial data analysis, and machine learning. The exact research topic can to some extent be shaped in discussions with the successful applicant depending on his/her primary interests and qualifications.
