Country of employment
Job description - The Postdoc will work in the IN-PLACE project team. In cooperation with the IVM-VU, the candidate will work on obtaining synoptic estimates of phytoplankton and microphyto-benthos biomass in the Wadden Sea as well as on developing habitat maps which are a [function] of tidal height, tidal energy and sediment characteristics. The post-doc is responsible for the collection and interpretation of remote sensing data from air-borne and satellite-borne sensors. Remote sensing algorithms should be developed to estimate primary production of both primary producer groups, and where possible detection algorithms should be developed to detect and estimate different functional primary producer groups (e.g. diatoms, cyanobacteria etc) using the RS data and data measured with the different sensors arrays of the coastal monitoring stations.
[Function] requirements - This position demands creative solutions using the knowledge of both biology and physics. The candidate must have a doctoral degree related to (bio-) physics or biomathematics and should have a keen interest in experimental research. Experience in remote sensing and good programming skills (e.g. MATLAB) are essential.
We offer a Postdoc position for 3 years. The salary depends on training and work experience according to the Collective Agreement for Dutch Universities (CAO-Nederlandse Universiteiten) and excludes an 8% holiday pay and a year-end bonus. We offer an extensive package of fringe benefits.
