According to the German TVöD 13
The DFD department “Land Surface Dynamics” quantifies global environmental change and analyses the drivers of processes of change.
The vacant PhD position has a methodological focus in the context of Data Science. In addition to the well-known satellite data archives of sensors such as the Sentinels and Landsat etc., it can be expected that archives of very high resolution sensors (Ikonos, Quickbird, Worldview, Planet) will increasingly be freely accessible. Considering that remote sensing will move into subject areas of "Object Inventories" (How many ships are in which port? How many oil tanks are there where? Where are containers piled? Where are there containers stacked? How are wind farms equipped? How many solar panels are located in an area? and all this automated and for large regions) the PhD project will focus on "The Potential of Earth Observation for Object Inventories" (working title). This addresses topics of GPU-based object extraction via KI/AI algorithms as well as the topic of Big EO Data Processing in the highest spatial resolution domain.
Research work covers the following areas:
Starting date is, the earliest, December 2018 and, the latest, January 2019. Please send your application until 15 October 2018.
