Open PostDoc Position in the field of Satellite Geodesy
The Institute of Geodesy and Geoinformatics (IGiG), WUELS, has a world-leading position in the domain of GNSS precise positioning, processing multi-GNSS observations, precise orbit determination, integration of GNSS and SLR data, and determination of global geodetic parameters. IGiG leads and participates in many scientific projects funded by the European Space Agency, the Polish National Science Center, and the European Union.

Hereby, IGiG announces an open PostDoc position that will be funded by the Polish National Science Center in the framework of the project “Determination of Global Geodetic Parameters using the Galileo Satellite System” (project number: 2018/29/B/ST10/00382). More information about the project can be found at the website:

Main tasks:
• Software development for precise positioning using Galileo data
• Processing and predictions of station and satellite clock parameters
• Analysis of the time series of Galileo-derived geodetic parameters
• Publishing scientific papers and presentation of results at scientific conferences
• Assist in education of master and Ph.D. students

• Ph.D. University degree in geodesy, informatics, physics, mathematics, aerospace engineering, or a similar discipline acquired between February 2012 and February 2019
• Proficiency in programming (e.g., in C++, Perl, Fortran, Python)
• Experience in the time series analysis of geodetic parameters and/or precise point positioning using multi-GNSS data
• Excellent record of scientific achievements, including publications as the first author in high-level journals, such as Journal of Geodesy, GPS Solutions, Journal of Geophysical Research, Geophysical Research Letters, or similar
• Proficiency in English (oral and written) and the willingness to learn the basics of Polish
• Capability to work independently and timely, enjoying to participate actively in meetings of international teams and to present complex research matter concisely and appealingly (oral and written).

Required documents:
• Application with the motivation letter
• CV
• list of publications (track record)
• copy of the doctoral degree (Ph.D. diploma)

Application deadline: January 31, 2019
