Postdoc in Inland Water Modeling and Remote Sensing

Technical University of Denmark is pleased to invite applicants to apply for a new opening postdoctoral associate position in environmental sciences. Applications are invited up to February 18, 2019.

The Department of Environmental Engineering (DTU Environment) at the Technical University of Denmark invites applications for a position as Postdoc within thesection Air, Land and Water Resources.

The Air, Land and Water Resources section (ALW) conducts research within aspects of global climate change, air pollution, hydrology, and interactions of the terrestrial biosphere with the hydrological cycle and atmosphere. Special focus is on water resources and greenhouse gas exchange between the atmosphere and natural and anthropogenic systems. Advanced techniques like tracer gas and eddy-covariance flux measurements, experimental manipulation of ecosystems, remote sensing, and modelling are used.

The postdoctoral research focuses on the development of satellite earth observation techniques for rivers and water resources systems. New data processing and model-data fusion techniques will be developed, supporting a range of new applications in water resources management, flood hazard management and drought risk assessment. The geographic focus of the work will be mainland China.

The postdoctoral research will be carried out in collaboration with a number of academic, industrial and public sector partners in Denmark and China, including the Chinese Academy of Sciences, Wuhan University, DTU Space, DHI GRAS and DHI. Activities will be embedded into a larger research project funded by the Danida Fellowship Center.

The specific responsibilities and tasks of the postdoctoral researcher will include

Candidates should have a PhD degree or equivalent. The successful candidate will have expertise in hydrology and hydraulics, satellite remote sensing, practical experience with different types of sensors (radar altimetry, synthetic aperture radar, spectral images) and numerical modeling. The candidate will have experience with the DHI water resources simulation models, especially Mike Hydro River. Excellent programming skills including C# are required. Excellent written and oral Chinese language skills are important. Experience with field activities and practical water resources applications in China is an asset. Willingness to travel and work in an international environment is essential.

DTU is a leading technical university globally recognized for the excellence of its research, education, innovation and scientific advice. We offer a rewarding and challenging job in an international environment. We strive for academic excellence in an environment characterized by collegial respect and academic freedom tempered by responsibility.

The appointment will be based on the collective agreement with the Danish Confederation of Professional Associations. The allowance will be agreed upon with the relevant union.
