RESEARCHER POSITION AT THE GEODESY AND NAVIGATION DEPARTMENT

Castelldefels - Barcelona

Descripción de la oferta de empleo

The Geomatics Division of CTTC invites applications for a researcher at postdoctoral level in its Geodesy and Navigation Department. The contract will be funded by the Catalan Government (ACCIO – Generalitat de Catalunya) through the competitive Tecniospring INDUSTRY call, see http://catalonia.com/innovate-in-catalonia/tecniospringplus.

TECHNICAL DESCRIPTION OF THE ACTIVITY

We are looking for a postdoc researcher interested in i) remote sensing techniques to monitor sea water quality, ii) advanced deep learning solutions and iii) marine biology to support the data analysis and guide the interpretation of results.

In this context, the project general objective is to design and implement Anomaly Detection (AD) methods based on the analysis of time series of single and multiple water quality indicators and ocean information, derived from Remote Sensing and in-situ data, using advanced machine learning techniques. These tools will be used to understand phenomena that occur around the aquaculture sites and to identify the source such as exogenous events (storms), the interaction with other systems (agricultural systems), extreme biological phenomena (blooms) or other anthropogenic phenomena. The goal of the study is to check if the environment itself is resilient and accepts the changes due to aquaculture.

ABOUT CTTC

The Centre Tecnològic de Telecomunicacions de Catalunya (CTTC), in Castelldefels – Barcelona, is a growing and well-funded research institution fostering excellence and diversity. CTTC offers a highly international environment at an exceptionally attractive location. As a research centre in telecommunications technologies CTTC provides a fertile environment for research cooperation and innovation between different disciplines. The Geomatics Division of CTTC develops what is understood as the “Geomatics discipline” a variety of techniques that integrate sensors that capture data and images (basically cameras and other remote sensors) with methods for the treatment, analysis, interpretation, diffusion, and storage of geographic information. It connects various traditional disciplines, like geodesy or cartography with more recently developed fields like remote sensing, satellite navigation and latest information and communication technologies. As a result, geomatics allows us today to obtain information about the Earth and her atmosphere globally and within very short time. For more information, please visit http://geomatics.cttc.es/.

Inside the Geomatics division, the Geodesy and Navigation Department (GEON) does research in the integration of any available sensor for local geodetic applications both in their geometric and physical aspects. The GEON staff constitutes a multidisciplinary team with strong backgrounds in cartography, geodesy, geography, mathematics, electronic engineering, and computer science. Over the years, the GEON Department has developed theoretical, software development, hardware integration and educational capabilities, through the realization of applied research projects and continuous education programmes. For more information, please visit: http://geomatics.cttc.es/integrated-geodesy-and-navigation/.

CTTC offers a young and multi-cultural environment aimed at fostering excellent research and development activities, providing access to an outstanding research network, top-tech labs, and all tools needed to conduct top-quality research and development activities.

CTTC seeks to increase the number of women in those areas where they are underrepresented and therefore explicitly encourages women to apply.

CTTC is committed to increasing the number of individuals with disabilities in its workforce and therefore encourages applications from such qualified individuals.
