Subject: Open position at AIUB

Dear Colleagues,

The Satellite geodesy research group of the Astronomical Institute of the University of Bern (AIUB) offers the position of a


The focus of the research activities will be in the field of


The AIUB hosts the Center for Orbit Determination in Europe (CODE), one of the leading analy-sis centers of the International GNSS Service (IGS). An important part of the position will be devoted to the continuous improvement of the processing system, which is required to guaran-tee the operational activities with high reliability. The permanent development and improvement of the Bernese GNSS Software package, to also guarantee the high quality standards of the CODE-products according to the latest scientific standards in the future, will be another core task of this position.

Based on these rather technical tasks, also various opportunities for scientific research result in order to continuously improve of the CODE products. A key element is the improvement of the orbit modelling for GNSS satellites (GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, BeiDou) as well as for low Earth orbiting satellites.

Depending on the interest and the experience of the candidate also other research topics may be defined, covering the wide range from the field of global GNSS analysis (improvement of relevant parameters like station coordinates, Earth rotation parameters, etc.), to the integration of new GNSS signals, up to the development and employment of new processing strategies.

The position may also allow PhD studies in the field of orbit modelling for GNSS satellites. In that case the focus of the work will be rather on scientific tasks than on technical tasks.
