Qualification Details

  • PhD degree in electrical engineering, physics, geophysics or similar
  • Programming experience, preferably in C++ and Python
  • Experience with signal processing and/or machine learning
  • Experience with electronics and/or instrument development
  • Strong analytical skills
  • Experience with DCIP, TEM, SNMR, or other geophysical methods is an advantage, but not required
  • Excellent English skills, both oral and in writing
  • A desire to work in interdisciplinary research projects

Responsibilities/Job Description

The research group ”Geophysics, Instrumentation, and Signal Processing” works with three key techniques for groundwater mapping and near surface geophysical exploration namely direct current induced polarization (DCIP), transient electromagnetics (TEM) and surface nuclear magnetic resonance (SNMR). We work at the instrument and signal processing level and our research projects includes both hardware and software developments. The common goal for our research across all three techniques is improvement of signal-to-noise ratio, as this is the key to fast, low-cost, area-covering measurements even in noisy, urban conditions.We are currently seeking a new postdoc colleague in the group. The postdoc will be involved in several on-going research projects and will contribute to the research and development in DCIP, TEM, and SNMR.

  • You will be doing research, development, and implementation of novel signal processing and machine-learning algorithms related to the operation of the instruments.
  • You will participate in analyzing data from instruments and use your results to optimize our instruments and algorithms.
  • You will participate in programming of instrument control and communication software, and will participate in instrument development, testing and field validation.

You will work closely with the other members of the research group and the external partners in the projects.  We therefore expect that you have strong communication and collaboration skills and are prepared to work in an interdisciplinary research setting. The research is expected to lead to several journal papers and we therefore expect good dissemination skills documented through a strong publication record.  As a postdoc, you will have the opportunity to contribute to other on-going research projects in the group as well as opportunities to contribute to supervision of Masters and PhD students.The postdoctoral fellowship is funded by Innovation Fund Denmark and Independent Research Fund Denmark. There is funding for 2 years of employment. For international applicants, Aarhus University offer help with relocation, housing and formalities.
