Dear Colleagues,





The group “Satellite Geodesy” of the Astronomical Institute of the


University of Bern (AIUB) offers the position for a





          *Ph.D.-Candidate*





The focus will be on studying the electron content of the plasmasphere,


the outer region of the co-rotating Earth's upper atmosphere, from GPS


data collected onboard a multitude of low Earth orbiting (LEO)


satellites, e.g. Swarm, Sentinel, and the upcoming COSMIC-2 satellites


additionally also providing GLONASS data.





The work will mainly focus on science issues, but includes technical


issues as well, e.g., LEO orbit determination including improved


pre-processing techniques. Based on clean and properly calibrated slant


TEC pseudo-observations derived from many LEO satellites, the


specification of the 3-D plasmasphere electron density shall be


envisaged. In view of a greatly improved spatial coverage offered by


current LEO satellites, different approaches for reconstructing 3-D


plasmasphere electron densities may be investigated to reduce


dependencies on a priori models to the extent possible.








The complete position description is available at


http://www.bernese.unibe.ch/Stellen/Stellenausschreibung_20161221.pdf








Please circulate this information within your institute.








With best regards





Rolf Dach
