The Department of Earth Sciences is one of the most complete such academic departments in Europe. Our research focuses on subjects that range from the Earth’s core to the atmosphere, on scales from submicroscopic structures in minerals to the formation of mountains and oceans. We have teaching at undergraduate and graduate levels. Our courses offer a wide range within the geoscience area and several of the department's programs have received the highest rating in evaluations by the Swedish National Agency for Higher Education (Högskoleverket) and the Swedish Higher Education Authority (Universitetskanslersämbetet). For more information, please visit: www.geo.uu.se.
The Programme for Air, Water, and Landscape Science encompasses education and research in meteorology, hydrology, environmental analysis, and physical geography. More information on the programme for air-water and landscape science can be found at www.geo.uu.se/research/luval/.
The primary objective of the work is to develop and validate remote sensing based method for estimating surface water pC02 and C02 exchange between water and atmosphere using other satellite products. The position involves downloading and work with various satellite products, developing methods for in-situ observation in the Baltic Sea region and developing satellite algorithms. The applicant should have experience in using remote sensing data and knowledge in marine and/or aquatic carbon cycles. The work will be done at Uppsala University in collaboration with Brockmann Geomatics AB.
This is primarily a research position. Teaching can be included up to a maximum of 10% of full time.
The requirement for this position is a PhD in meteorology/oceanography, aquatic remote sensing or corresponding competence.
In ranking eligible candidates, special importance will be given to scientific skills in relation to the subject area specified. Special weight will be given to earlier experiences in analysing rernote sensing data and of working with air-sea interaction processes. In filling this position the university aims to recruit the person who, in the combined evaluation of competence, skills and documented qualifications, is judged most suitable to carry out and develop the work-in-hand and to contribute to a positive development of the department.
