PostDoc in Artificial Intelligence for Earth Observation

Directorate of Earth Observation Programmes, European Space Agency (ESA), ESRIN, Frascati, Italy
Deadline: March 11, 2020

The successful candidate will carry out research in the field of Artificial Intelligence (AI) with a particular emphasis on developing new methods applicable to Earth Observation (EO). The specific area of research is partly chosen by you based on your own expertise and partly chosen by the team as to follow strategic directions of the Agency, such as:

  • perform your own research, while also contributing to the lab current AI4EO use cases (e.g. multi-sensor data fusion, edge computing, automatic change detection, transfer learning, mining of hyperspectral data);
  • support the team rapidly prototype and evaluate AI solutions for application to EO data sets and challenges, particularly those relevant for ESA EO missions;
  • adapt existing AI algorithms and tools to take account of the specific characteristics of EO data sets, physical measurement principles, and apply them to EO data applications with particular interest in hyperspectral imaging and radar imaging;
  • prepare, validate and maintain large-scale, training data sets, to be used for development and evaluation of AI algorithms, by international research and industrial communities;

Requirements Include:

  • A PhD degree in either AI, computer science, mathematics or relevant engineering discipline.
  • Research/publication record
  • Ability to conduct research autonomously
