Postdoctoral Research in Remote Sensing – interferometric SAR

Postdoctoral Research in Remote Sensing - interferometric SAR

Location: The Arctic University of Norway (UiT), Faculty of Engineering Science
and Technology, Department of Electrical Engineering, Narvik Campus.

Deadline: March 16, 2022


The successful candidate will research how interferometric SAR (InSAR) can be used to track volumes of liquid bulk commodities in a port and how much is transported between ports. The hypothesis is that InSAR can be used to track the height / deformation of the on shore storage tanks as a function of filling degree. If this is possible, the goal is to use these changes to analyse how they change with the amount of shipping occurring.


  • Norwegian doctoral degree (PhD) or equivalent international PhD within (In)Sar, remote sensing, applied physics, satellite technology or other relevant fields.

  • Must speak and write English

Desired Qualifications:

Knowledge and training in the following fields are desirable:

  • Interferometric SAR

  • Remote sensing

  • Programming skills in for instance Python

  • Mathematics

  • Physics

  • Machine learning

  • Digital signal processing

Norwegian language would be advantageous
