PhD Scholarship in Ice Sheet Monitoring from Satellites and Aircraft, Denmark 2011

The research theme of the PhD. will involve development of methods for cryosphere monitoring from satellites (GRACE, IceSat and CryoSat-2) as well as airborne measurements, and the application to the Greenland ice sheet as well as North Atlantic region ice caps (e.g., Svalbard and Iceland). The overall goal is to obtain consistent results of ice mass loss estimates by combination of different types of remote sensing data, including validation by in-situ or other glaciological data. The PhD project includes especially focus on analysis of Cryosat-2 data, as well as recent airborne altimetry data from both European and NASA…

PhD Scholarship: Structural and Chemical Characterization of Semiconductor Nanowires by Hard X-ray Nanoprobe in the Experiments Division, France

Within the EU Initial Training Network (ITN) “NANOWIRING” (http://www.nanowiring.eu/), a PhD position is available at the beamline ID22 of the ESRF for the hard X-ray microanalysis of ensembles and single semiconductor nanowires. Two stations are clearly identified by the spatial resolution at ID22: EH1 microprobe devoted to micro-spectroscopy and ID22NI nanoprobe used for nano-analysis. The flexible design of the stations allows to bring together different imaging techniques in the hard X-ray energy range: x-ray fluorescence, x-ray absorption and diffraction, as well as x-ray excited optical luminescence on the (sub)micrometer scales. The aim of the PhD project is the…
