Max-Planck-Institute for Biogeochemistry: Postdoctoral UAS (Drones/Wingcopters) specialist, application deadline August 31, 2021

We are seeking a postdoctoral specialist with experience in the use of unmanned aircraft system (UAS) for the detection and quantification of regional scale greenhouse gas emissions in Arctic permafrost environments. The successful candidate (m/f/d) will be responsible for the technical development of sensors and instrumentation on different types of UASs (quadcopter, wingcopter) for greenhouse gas measurements (concentration and fluxes) and related meteorological and land surface parameters. He will help in the design and conduction of UAS based measurement campaigns in permafrost regions of Eastern Siberia. The tasks also include the integration and analysis of the UAS measurements within a local high-resolution surface-atmosphere modelling system jointly with project team colleagues contributing in situ measurements (eddy covariance, flux chambers) and high-resolution remote sensing data of land surface properties.
