Open positions: please contact Dr. Offer Rozenstein

1. We currently have an open position for a research engineer

2. If you are looking for a master's /  PhD program, or post-doctorate experience, and you are: curious, intelligent, and diligent, can work independently but enjoy being part of a vibrant, young, and growing group - We may have a position for you!  

Competitive post-doctoral applicants will have a strong publication record, and propose projects related to one of the lab's themes. 

Competitive Ph.D. applicants are those who have completed a research-based masters, have PUBLISHED at least one, first-author peer-reviewed journal article, and have contacted me early in the year prior to their application (e.g., June).

Competitive masters students are those who have extensive research experience or related work experience, and high grades in their previous studies. 

All letters of introduction should include a paragraph stating how your research interests align with the lab, an updated curriculum vitae, and contact information for professional references.

 

Suggested research topics:

- The use of Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) for crop water requirements in combination with optical remote sensing (e.g. Sentinel-1 and Sentinel 2).

- The use of SAR interferometry for soil degradation studies. 

- Remote sensing modeling of surface energy balance and evapotranspiration.

- Examining the effect of biological soil crusts in orchards on evaporation and crop irrigation and fertigation demands. 

- Remote sensing applications in precision agriculture.
