Ph.D. Student Opportunities in Geosensing Systems Engineering & Sciences

The Geosensing Systems Engineering & Sciences (GSES) Graduate Program in the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering at the University of Houston, in conjunction with the NSF National Center for Airborne Laser Mapping (NCALM), is seeking qualified applicants (with backgrounds in engineering, geomatics, geosciences, physics, astronomy, computer sciences, or geography) interested in: Design, development, and testing of lidar, digital image, and hyperspectral sensors; Research applications of lidar observations, including when combined with digital imagery or hyperspectral measurements; Study of satellite altimetry for applications in hydrology, glaciology, geodynamics, and sea levels; Applications of terrestrial laser scanning, airborne lidar, and GPS in natural hazards studies and mitigation; and Applications of airborne remote sensing techniques in geomorphology, climate/weather studies, hydrology, and tectonics.

Additionally, U.S. citizens interested in single photon and Geiger mode lidar analysis are encouraged to apply for opportunities to participate in sensor design and error analysis, geometric and radiometric calibration algorithm development, data filtering and feature extraction, comparison and fusion with traditional active and passive remote sensing products, and multi-sensor fusion design and data exploitation.
