Postdoctoral Researcher in Volcano InSAR
The School of Earth Sciences seeks to appoint a RA for 3 years to detect and classify the spatio-temporal patterns of volcano deformation using the rapidly growing global archive of satellite imagery. The researcher will work with closely with the COMET LICSAR processing team and Bristol’s Visual Information Laboratory to develop new approaches to the systematic processing and analysis of InSAR data from the Sentinel-1 and NISAR satellites, focussing on volcanic unrest and eruption
What will you be doing?
- Use satellite observations to study volcanic processes and relate these to the distribution of hazard.
- Investigate how volcano deformation varies in space and time, making use of large InSAR datasets.
- Work with volcano observatories to incorporate satellite observations into their monitoring strategy and use them to inform decision-making in near-real time.
You should apply if
- Experience in processing and analysis of InSAR data
- Computational skills required for the analysis and interpretation of geophysical data and models
- Ability to work closely in a team on joint research and publications
- Ability to write up and publish scientific results in the international peer-reviewed literature
