Type of employment

Full-time

The department "EO Data Science" of the Remote Sensing Technology Institute develops modern signal processing and AI procedures for present and future earth observation missions. It is involved in a number of third-party funded projects and in a large international network.

Its activities include the design and development of SAR interferometry algorithms for the creation of global 4D building models and the processing of large SAR data sets:

  • Literature research on SAR interferometry
  • Generation of 4D-InSAR point clouds (3D positions and motion parameters, e.g. seasonal and thermal deformations as well as linear movements) by Persistent Scatterer Interferometry or SAR tomography
  • Development of precise and computationally efficient algorithms for large-scale 3D/4D reconstruction
  • Implementation of algorithms and program code on high-performance computers
  • Development of explorative data-driven algorithms for SAR interferometry
  • Participation in the preparation of the project reports
  • Participation and organization of project-relevant events
  • Participation in scientific publications (professional journals and lectures at international conferences)

Your qualifications:

  • completed scientific university studies (university diploma/master's degree) in computer science, mathematics, electrical engineering, geodesy or a comparable course of study
  • very good programming skills in a development language (IDL, Matlab, Python) or C/C++
  • experience in SAR remote sensing / SAR interferometry
  • experience in machine learning
  • experience with high performance computing (HPC) with knowledge of MPI and openMP
  • good command of written and spoken English
  • Doctorate in computer science, mathematics, electrical engineering, geodesy or in a comparable course of study desirable

Your benefits:

Look forward to a fulfilling job with an employer who appreciates your commitment and supports your personal and professional development. Our unique infrastructure offers you a working environment in which you have unparalleled scope to develop your creative ideas and accomplish your professional objectives. Our human resources policy places great value on a healthy family and work-life-balance as well as equal opportunities for persons of all genders (m/f/non-binary). Individuals with disabilities will be given preferential consideration in the event their qualifications are equivalent to those of other candidates.
