Date of publication : Monday, August 22, 2022
Type of Contract : FTC Technical / Administrative
Contract Period : 11 months
Expected date of employment : 1 February 2023
Proportion of work : Full time
Remuneration : 2 548 €
Desired level of education : Engineer
Experience required : 1 to 4 years


Develop an algorithm to enhance the spatiale resolution of the melt products derived from SMOS satellite in Greenland and in Antarctica. This projet takes place in the framework of two Centre National d'Etude Spataile (French space agency) programs : « SMOS Terrestrial Surfaces » and « SMOS HighResolution ».


- Review the state of the art in polar glaciology remote sensing and in image processing techniques for spatial resolution enhancement.
- Develop and optimize an image enhancement algorithm dedicated to SMOS satellite (60km → 10km) by exploiting the high redundancy of acquisitions in the polar regions. This enhancement will act directly on the raw brightness temperature image or once the melt is derived from these raw measurements. Various techniques will be explored.
- Contribute to all the ongoing projects in the group (European Space Agency, CNES, …) regarding microwave remote sensing and polar regions. The objective is to acquire wider skills and knowledge on a variety of research topics, not only on the enhancement.
- Write scientific articles for peer-review.


- Expertise in remote sensing and image processing
- Skills in computing for big data processing
- Knownledge on the polar regions is an added-value
- Knowledge of radiative transfer modeling is an asset.
- Language skills English, minimum level C1 (European framework of reference for languages - CEFR) and French if possible.
- Good communication skills (oral, writing).
- Autonomy.
- Ability to adapt.

Work Context

The Institut des Géosciences de l'Environnement (IGE) is a public research laboratory under affiliated to the CNRS, IRD, Grenoble Alpes University (UGA) and Grenoble-INP. IGE research is on climate change and the anthropisation of our planet in the polar, mountain and intertropical regions, regions that are particularly sensitive to climate change and have major societal issues.
There are around 260 people, including 160 permanent members (researchers, professor, engineers and technicians) and around 100 staff on fixed-term contracts (PhD students, researchers and IT staff). The laboratory also welcomes several dozen trainees and visiting scientists each year. The laboratory is located on two close sites on the Grenoble university campus (Glaciology building and OSUG-B - Maison Climat Planète), in Saint Martin d'Hères near Grenoble.
The IGE is one of the main laboratories of the Observatoire des Sciences de l'Univers de Grenoble (OSUG), a federative structure of the CNRS INSU.
The person recruited will carry out their mission within the C2H team and will be placed under the responsibility of Ghislain Picard.

Constraints and risks

- A few stays at CESBIO in Toulouse will be necessary to acquire the expertise on SMOS interferometric processing.
- Speaking French is not mandatory but activelylearning French is expected to facilitate the communication in the laboratory.
