The PhenoFly team within the Crop Science Group at the Department of Environmental Systems Science (D-USYS) at ETH Zürich is looking for a new colleague for a doctorate/PhD (100%) to investigate environmental impacts on the phenology of crops. The intended start of the project is Q1 (Feb – April) 2021.
We offer a full time PhD position for 3 years. You will become part of the Phenofly team (www.phenofly.net) of the Crop Science Group at ETH Zürich (www.kp.ethz.ch) within the Department of Environmental Systems Science (D-USYS). This will allow you to get insights into many topics related to high-throughput field phenotyping and precision agriculture. Additionally, you may join the PhD
program in Plant Sciences (https://www.plantsciences.uzh.ch/en/teaching/phdplantscience.html).
The salary is according to the ETH standard pay scale.

Objective of the thesis: The objective of this new thesis aims to improve, validate and extend our methodology in order to build a clay hazard map based on hyperspectral airborne acquisitions on an ULM light carrier or drone. To this end, work will focus on an assessment and improvement of the methods of mixing change of scale (change from cm to dm, role of local shadows and sparse vegetation), development of a new research strategy for mixing poles using all of the area covered by an aircraft (contribution of machine learning), evaluation of the contribution of exogenous data (1: 50,000 soil mapping) and / or multi-time acquisitions to improve our estimates, in order to take better account of soil moisture.

About: A Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) specialist for land monitoring: As a researcher you execute and shape applied research in the domain of SAR remote sensing in combination with optical RS data linked to vegetation in the application domains of agriculture and nature. This means that your work will have an emphasis on Remote Sensing-enabled Essential Biodiversity Variables (RS-EBVs) including plant traits such as phenology, biomass, vegetation height and structure, next to monitoring agriculture, crop classifications, crop area estimates, identification farming activities such as mowing, crop yield estimation, and environmental variables (all related to CAP). You will integrate Radar and Optical remote sensing by software engineering (including programming) in applications (e.g. with Sentinel 1 and 2). For this reason you will work closely with other researchers in the field of optical remote sensing, land monitoring, crop yield forecasting, UAVs, big data analysis, and software engineering, within a data driven and quantitative systems approach. You acquire and position your research in a national and international context, in collaboration with colleagues and international partners.
Tasks combine project leadership of smaller to medium-sized projects, project execution (with data, models and remote sensing products), presentation of research results, training, project acquisition together with team mates and customer consultation.
Where: Wageningen Environmental University & Research, The Netherlands
Deadline for application: 28th of February 2020
The project will investigate the use of remote sensing technologies, such as lidar and optical imaging, for forest tree species characterisation and monitoring.
Start date and duration: September 2020, 3.5 years
Application closing date: 10th January 2020
