Postdoc Position in Satellite Atmospheric Science for two years The
Satellite Atmospheric Science (SAT) group at the Department of Space Science
(IRV) is looking for a Postdoc. 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 USA-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 a Postdoc
with research interests and qualifications in one or more of the above areas. To
apply, you should have a good or excellent PhD in a relevant area, and a strong
publication record. 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. The
position will be for an initial two years, with the possibility of extending it
for another two years. 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.
