The Department of Physics and Technology at UiT The Arctic University of Norway invites applications for a PhD student in optical remote sensing for water quality parameter retrieval. This full-time, four-year position will be located at UiT The Arctic University of Norway in Tromsø, Norway.

The successful candidate will investigate and develop algorithms for retrieval of geophysical and biochemical variables in the Barents Sea from multispectral (and hyper-spectral, if available) optical sensors. The PhD candidate will be involved in collecting satellite data and coincident in-situ datasets. Some fieldwork can be expected.

Requirements for this position include a Master’s degree in physics, mathematics, statistics, or machine learning. The successful candidate is required to have course work in optical remote sensing and machine learning. A strong background in signal and image processing, physics, and statistics is desirable. Some knowledge of remote sensing of Arctic waters and sea ice would be advantageous, and some experience with synthetic aperture radar would be an asset.

Applications must include:

  • A curriculum vitae and application letter,
  • Diplomas and transcripts (diploma supplement),
  • Documentation of English language proficiency;
  • References, and
  • Master’s thesis and any other academic works.

Applicants may also include a description outlining the academic basis of the PhD project. All documentation must be in English or a Scandinavian language.

Application deadline: 15 August 2018
