Postdoc position in Near-real time forest monitoring using Sentinel satellites and data science (1.0 fte)
The Laboratory for Geo-information Science and Remote Sensing (GRS) at Wageningen University (NL) is offering a Postdoc position on near real-time forest monitoring using Sentinel satellite data and data science.
Earth observation and data science technologies are rapidly advancing. New satellites now provide spatially detailed information almost daily and cloud computing solution enable large-scale applications. With the European Sentinel-1 and -2 satellites dense and high-resolution radar and optical data are available free-of-charge and globally for the first time. This offers great potential to support services and science better.
We have developed concepts for new approaches to use radar and optical satellite data for near real-time forest change monitoring. Further innovations are now needed to utilize the high spatial and temporal information content of the new satellite missions for improving the detection, validation and characterization of changes, and for scaling the developed approaches.
You will explore statistical methods and machine learning to advance algorithms and concepts for multi-sensor near real-time forest monitoring. You will explore novel solution based on spatio-temporal statistics and deep learning models in support of large-scale and effective implementations in cloud environments.
You will work in the context of a large international project focusing on near real-time forest change monitoring in the tropics. You will be part of the near real-time science team at our lab, and also be involved in the supervision of PhD students
