The Department of Earth Systems Analysis (ESA) focuses on geological remote sensing of earth resources. The department develops remote sensing based methods embedded in geospatial models to support exploration of geothermal systems, or forms (particularly hydrothermal) systems and studies oil and gas seepage in petroleum basins. We integrate this with geodynamical modeling of earth processes (earthquakes, earth structure). Besides that the department focuses on natural hazards and disaster risk management. We analyze and simulate natural hazards, their geophysical and climatic drivers, and their impact on society as a result of physical and social vulnerability. In particular, we aim to understand short term and long term spatial and temporal dynamics of risk (both hazards and vulnerability), to improve disaster management. The department has earth scientists expertise in (hyperspectral) reflectance spectroscopy, gamma ray spectrometry and satellite gravity, and has a strong track record in the development of spatial data driven and physical models and decision support systems, and use field, remote sensing and UAV based data in our analyses. ESA has a strong track record in research and capacity development projects all over the world, with emphasis on East Africa, South East Asia and the Central America/Caribbean.
Your excellent research contributes well to the ESA department, resulting in publications in high impact journals. You develop education and teach at MSc level for an international class room, and supervise research at the graduate level (MSc and PhD). You have or are willing to obtain in the near future, a basic teaching qualification. You join in research and capacity development projects and help in project acquisition.
The position requires a PhD degree in a relevant field and a competitive record of publications. You have a track record or high potential for generating funds in research and/or consultancy projects consistent with your career level. You are internationally oriented across cultural boundaries and are prepared to travel on short missions. You are fluent in English.
