Two Research Scientist Positions (m/f/x) - Remote Sensing and Earth System Science
The Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research (UFZ) with its 1,100 employees has gained an excellent reputation as an international competence centre for environmental sciences. We are part of the largest scientific organisation in Germany, the Helmholtz association. Our mission: Our research seeks to find a balance between social development and the long-term protection of our natural resources.
The newly established Department of Remote Sensing in UFZ conducts innovative research to advance the understanding of the Earth system via various remote sensing techniques. It has extensive research experience in quantifying land surface dynamics from multi-source Earth observations across scales. Another focus lies on the investigation of land-atmosphere interaction and climate extremes using novel remote sensing products. The department is currently involved in the establishment of the joint Remote Sensing Centre for Earth System Research (RSC4Earth) between UFZ and the Faculty of Physics and Earth Sciences at Leipzig University. The RSC4Earth will work closely with national (e.g., iDiv, TROPOS, DLR, MPI-BGC, MPI-M, LMU) and international (e.g., NASA, ESA, UKCEH, ECMWF, Oxford University, Princeton University) collaborators to deepen the understanding of ecosystem and water cycle dynamics in a changing climate.
