Fellowship in Satellite Altimetry

Are you an ambitious scientist looking for your next challenge? Do you want to further your career with CPOM? Do you have a PhD (or close to obtaining) in a quantitative subject, and the skills to develop our satellite altimetry capability?

CPOM is seeking to recruit a research fellow in satellite radar altimetry, with emphasis on creating cutting-edge satellite altimeter observations of the polar regions.  In this role, you will provide a valuable contribution to our programme of land ice altimetry research, focusing on studying the Antarctic and Greenland ice sheets in unprecedented detail, exploiting recent developments in satellite radar altimetry and the resulting increase in the availability, volume, frequency and quality of Earth observation data.

Although based at the heart of the CPOM team in Leeds, you will work with scientists across our partner universities.In addition, you will liaise with ESA, BAS, NOC, the UK Met Office and other institutions as appropriate to contribute to CPOM’s scientific objectives.
