Postdoctoral and PhD positions available at Satellite Research Centre at NTU Singapore

Applications are invited from talented physicists and engineers to join the Earth remote sensing and atmospheric modelling group at the Satellite Research Centre (SaRC) in the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at Nanyang Technological University of Singapore. SaRC currently has two postdoc positions open for qualified candidates to work on Global Climate Models to study atmosphere dynamics or to develop new small satellite (Cubesat and microsatellite) mission concepts for atmospheric imaging missions.  SaRC operates the VELOX CI satellite for GPS Radio Occultation studies and is actively working towards developing a regional space weather application for South-East Asia. Applicants who have a PhD in Physical sciences or Engineering, experience working with atmospheric models and satellite datasets are encouraged to apply. Applications are also invited from candidates with experience in working with space hardware, space instrumentation, optical and imaging systems.
Desired Requirements:

*         PhD or M. Eng/MS in Engineering or Physical Sciences.

*         Interest in Atmospheric and Ionospheric modelling.

*         Experience working with Satellite datasets.

*         Experience in Matlab/Python/IDL  programing skills

*         Strong analytical ability, communication skills, creativity and self-motivation.

*         Good interpersonal skills with the ability to work independently and also in a team environment.
For Instrumentation Position:

*         Experience in Optical Instrumentation.

*         Clean room experience.

*         Experience working with Satellite hardware.

PhD positions are available to work on:

1)      Thermosphere gravity wave studies using simulations from the Whole Atmosphere Community Climate Model with Thermosphere Ionosphere Extension (WACCM-X) and observations from upcoming NASA GOLD and ICON missions.

2)      An equatorial CubeSat constellation for continuous Ionospheric monitoring of the South East Asia region. The student will work to develop algorithms for radio occultation measurement retrievals, TEC calculation and identifying common volume measurements with ground based GPS receivers. The PhD student is expected to gain an insight into the various subsystems of a spacecraft and work closely with the engineering team at SaRC.
PhD applications for August 2018 semester is due before January 31st. Interested applicants are encouraged to get in touch with Dr. Amal Chandran at the earliest.
Application Procedure:
Interested Candidates please send your CV/resume together with a cover letter to:
