The Department of Earth Systems Analysis of the faculty of Geo-information Science and Earth Observation at the University of Twente is looking for an Earth scientist with experience in regional geological interpretation and data integration for Earth resource exploration. The Department of Earth Systems Analysis combines Earth science knowledge with spatial modelling and advanced remote sensing to understand Earth processes in space and time. Our education and research contribute to the sustainable use of energy and Earth resources and help reduce disaster risk and the impact of natural hazards on society.
The Geological Remote Sensing group of the Department of Earth Systems Analysis studies the natural environment with optical and thermal infrared spectroscopy, hyperspectral remote sensing and geophysics to understand Earth processes in space and time. Major lines of research include expert systems for surface compositional mapping, quantification of rock samples and Earth surface characteristics, and validation of remote sensing results with laboratory and field measurements.
The group would like to further enhance the validation of remote sensing methods with laboratory and ground data and continue the development of remote sensing approaches to solve Earth science problems and to support demands from industry. Also supporting the Natural Hazards group of the department with, for example, surface characteristics on soils and soil conditions is a possible line of development.
Knowledge on one of the following topics would be an advantage:
You must have a PhD at the time of employment, and show a demonstrated record or strong promise of research productivity. You are expected to build a vigorous, externally funded research program, mentor MSc and PhD graduate students, and teach graduate courses in your speciality.
