Fellowship & Grant details

Fellowship posted by Italian Ministry of Education, University and Research (14/12/2013 03.01)

Development and validation of advanced satellite techniques for Earth’s thermal emission measurements in relation with main natural and environmental risks.

Please note that the job is no longer active!

The project is addressed to develop and validate robust data-analysis techniques suitable for discriminating normal from anomalous signal space-time variations possibly associated to potentially dangerous environmental (e.g. sea water pollution) or natural (impending earthquakes) events. Within the framework of the project it will be moreover carried out a comparative validation of products developed on the basis of a multi-temporal analysis of TIR satellite data. In particular the following aspects will be evaluated: a) full exportability over different geographic areas and/or satellite sensors; b) usefulness for different applications (e.g. oil spills monitoring, thermal precursors of earthquakes identification); c) possibilities of integration within a multi-parametric monitoring system in pre-operational contexts.

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!

Eligibility criteria

Five years long Degree (in the previous Italian system) in "Ingegneria per l’Ambiente e il Territorio” o in “Scienze Geologiche”, or (Master Degree corresponding to the second level Italian Degree) among those belonging to the classes (38/S; 86/S; LM-35; LM-74) or equivalent degree obtained abroad.

The PhD is NOT mandatory requirement for admission but the title of PhD in all matters related to the theme of the research project will be evaluated.

Documented experience (contracts and / or publications) and at least 3 years post-graduate (5 years title) research on issues of the research project object of this invitation.

Selection process

The selection will take place through two different phases:

a. Evaluation of qualifications. Will be evaluated:

1. scientific curriculum

2. qualifications ( specialization courses, phd, awarded in Italy or abroad) concerning the research topics;

3. scientific publications concerning the research topics,

4. research contracts with public and private research center , scholarships, research grants, concerning the research topics.

b) Colloquium

The interview will focus on the analysis techniques of time series of satellite data in the infrared, with particular reference to applications to the monitoring of the main environmental ral risk factors. The talk will conclude with an examination of knowledge of the English language
