The Earth Observatory of Singapore (EOS) at NTU is a national science Research Centre of Excellence. Its mission is to conduct fundamental research on earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, tsunami and climate change in and around Southeast Asia, toward safer and more sustainable societies. We seek a qualified candidate to help to design and coordinate a near-real-time, partially automated Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar (InSAR) processing and response system to facilitate geodetic research, monitoring of natural hazards and disaster response. Specific targets may include flooding, land subsidence, volcano monitoring, tectonic deformation and earthquake studies across Southeast Asia. The job scope will include (a) leading efforts towards the technical development and operation of the processing system, (b) communication with stakeholders and policy makers across the region to make sure that products are most useful for disaster mitigation and response, (c) coordination and collection of a geospatial database of ground truth data for calibration and validation of the processing results.
The ideal candidate will possess high-level knowledge of the principles and technical aspects of satellite-based radar remote sensing, geospatial analysis and image classification, and InSAR, as well as a strong understanding of natural hazards. They should have expertise and experience with managing complex projects that involve multiple stakeholders, and enthusiasm to collaborate with a varied group that will include Earth scientists, social scientists, technical staff, policy makers, NGO’s, and disaster-response organizations
