Announcment of an upcoming PhD position in Radar Remote Sensing at the Geophysical Institute of the University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF).
The research will focus on: InSAR-based Transportation Infrastructure Monitoring
Research Focus and Background: Interferometric SAR (InSAR) techniques offer the possibility to monitor dynamic deformations and instabilities of infrastructure anywhere around the globe. This research project is aimed at testing and improving current InSAR techniques to optimize InSAR-based stability monitoring of transportation infrastructure (roads, bridges) and transportation corridors (landslides, surface deformation).
We are looking for a highly motivated candidate preferably with a background in radar remote sensing and GIS-related topics. Analytical skills and basic experience in programming are preferable. A desire and readiness to work in a multidisciplinary research team is essential.
We are offering a research position embedded in an interdisciplinary and international research team with academic, industry, and governmental partners. The student position will be located in Fairbanks, Alaska and employment will be provided for a period of at least two years.
