    The PostDoc position will be funded by the Polish National Science Center in the framework of the project “ Integrated terrestrial reference frames based on SLR measurements to geodetic, active LEO, and GNSS satellites ” (project number: 2019/35/B/ST10/00515).

    Description of tasks in the position:

  • Time series analysis of global geodetic parameters: Earth rotation parameters, station coordinates, and low-degree gravity field parameters derived from space and satellite geodesy techniques.
  • Analysis of geodetic parameters based on SLR and GNSS data and a comparison with geophysical models with geodynamic interpretations.
  • Publishing scientific papers and presentation of results at scientific conferences.
  • Assist in education of master and D. students.

  • Proficiency in programming (e.g., in C++, Fortran, Python or others) including data visualization.
  • Experience in processing satellite geodetic data and deriving geodetic parameters, e.g., Earth rotation parameters, station coordinates, precise orbits, gravity field parameters based on GNSS/SLR/LLR/VLBI data.
  • Proficiency in English (oral and written).
  • Capability to work independently and timely, enjoying to participate actively in meetings of international teams and to present complex research matter concisely and appealingly (oral and written).
