PostDoc position: land surface dynamics in the Mekong Basin

written by Martin Wegmann

November 1, 2014

from January onwards we are looking at the DLR (German Aerospace Center, Munich, Germany) for a PostDoc for our large, cross-disciplinary project dealing with the large Mekong Basin in Southeast Asia. Focus will be the analyses of land surface dynamics in the trans-boundary Mekong Basin; an area 2.5 times the size of Germany, and covering all climate zones from high alpine to sub-tropical / tropical.
Method-wise, time series analyses based on MODIS, Sentinel-3, Landsat, and Sentinel-1/2 will be undertaken.
Several of our colleagues have worked in the region for the past 6-7 years, data and algorithms do partially exist, and a PhD student will also work with the post doctoral researcher.
