PhD Student Position in Satellite Atmospheric Science The Satellite
Atmospheric Science (SAT) group at the Department of Space Science (IRV) is
looking for a new PhD student. The IRV is a department of Luleå Technical
University, located at the Space Campus in Kiruna, Sweden. We work in close
collaboration with the other two big space and environment research institutions
in Kiruna, IRF and ESRANGE. The group focuses on three research
areas: 1. Radiative Transfer. Together with Chalmers University, we
maintain and extend the Atmospheric Radiative Transfer Simulator (ARTS), a
public domain program developed and used by groups all over Europe. ARTS can
simulate the propagation of thermal radiation in the atmosphere, including the
effects of atmospheric absorption and scattering. 2. Humidity and
Cloud Research. We use available satellite data (from meteorological and
research satellites) to study the hydrological cycle in the upper troposphere
and the climatology of humidity and clouds. A focus in the past has been on
passive microwave sensors, such as the Advanced Microwave Sounding Unit B, but
we plan to increase the use of other available data, for example from the US
A-train of satellites, or from Envisat. 3. Development of New
Satellite Sensors. We work on new satellite sensor concepts, particularly in the
context of future missions of the European Space Agency (ESA). One important
project is the further development of a satellite sensor to study ice clouds in
the sub-millimeterwave spectral range, along the lines of the CIWSIR (Cloud Ice
Water Sub-millimeter Imaging Radiometer) mission proposal. This is expected to
include the work with aircraft prototypes. It is the science definition and data
analysis algorithm development that we work on, not the sensor hardware.
We are looking for PhD students with research interests and qualifications
in one or more of the above areas. To apply, you must have a good or excellent
masters degree in a relevant area. You should also have traceable experience in
atmospheric science and remote sensing, as well as a good general background in
physics and mathematics. Furthermore, you should have good English skills and
good computer skills, including some programming experience. Swedish skills will
be considered an additional bonus. You should be capable of independent,
original, and creative research work, but at the same time be a good team
player. As usual in Sweden, the PhD positions are for five years and
are associated with a full-time position with a commensurate salary. The duties
are 80% research and 20% teaching. We offer an open and friendly work
environment with a strong focus on research. More information about the group
can be found on our website Candidates with good
programming skills and an interest in radiative transfer model and retrieval
algorithm development will have priority. Female candidates will also have
priority, since we are aiming to increase the fraction of women in the group. We
value diversity, so candidates belonging to minorities are particularly
encouraged to apply. IApplications, marked with the reference no.
3337-07, are to be addressed to Luleå University of Technology, The Registry
Secretary, SE-971 87 Luleå Sweden, or by e-mail to . Together with your
application, please send in your CV and copy/transcripts of your exam.
Applications should be received no later than January 6, 2008.
