We are looking for a highly motivated candidate to work with us in the European BIODIVERSA project “ReVersal – Restoring peatlands of the nemoral zone under conditions of varying water supply and quality”. The main objective of the project funded within the call “Conservation and restoration of degraded ecosystems and their biodiversity, including a focus on aquatic systems” is to develop a spatio-temporally explicit indicator system for peatland restoration success across peatland sites and across spatio-temporal scales.

The successful candidate will work in an international and interdisciplinary team and will be responsible for the development of an upscaling approach from local field measurements via very-high resolution UAS-data to the satellite-scale. The candidate will derive peatland restoration indicators directly from multi-sensor remote sensing signals and model more complex indicators such as potential gas fluxes using machine learning methods.
