Job description

The geodesy group of the Tallinn University of Technology, Estonia, is seeking a postdoctoral fellow for participation in the research project “An Iterative Approach for Near-Coast Marine Geoid Modelling”, for more details see http://gece.ttu.ee/~geoid . The objectives of the project are as follows:
Development of satellite altimetry (SA) re-tracking algorithms adapted for the near-coast sea surface heights (SSH) determination,
Improvements in hydrodynamic models (HDM) by using synergy of data,
Near-coast improvements in marine geoid modelling and SSH.

The successful candidate is expected to contribute interactively with all the objectives especially with research interest of the first two sub-fields outlined above. The successful candidate should have a PhD either in satellite altimetry, ocean modelling, geodesy or related field. Advanced programming, post-processing and data management/analysis skills are required. He/she should be fluent in the English (speaking and writing) and possess teamworking abilities. The position is offered for 12-24 months, from May 2020 (negotiable).


How to apply

Applicants should send by March 02, 2020 at the latest (a) a statement of research experience, qualification and interest, (b) a complete CV including a list of publications, and © contact of two references by e-mail to Prof. Artu Ellmann (artu.ellmann@taltech.ee)
