part-time employ­ment may be pos­sible

Work­ing field:

The huge num­ber of recent Earth obser­va­tion satel­lite mis­sions has led to a sig­ni­fic­ant growth of remote sens­ing (RS) image archives with multi-source/multi-modal RS images (multis­pec­tral, hyper­spec­tral and SAR). Research activ­ity of the suc­cess­ful can­did­ate will focus on devel­op­ment of accur­ate and scal­able multi-modal remote sens­ing image index­ing and retrieval meth­ods for massive RS archives. In par­tic­u­lar, the suc­cess­ful can­did­ate will develop novel deep hash­ing net­works that will extract and exploit com­ple­ment­ary inform­a­tion among dif­fer­ent RS image mod­al­it­ies for their accur­ate char­ac­ter­iz­a­tion with small num­ber of (weakly) annot­ated images. This research activ­ity is a part of the ERC-fun­ded pro­ject: BigEarth - Accur­ate and Scal­able Pro­cessing of Big Data in Earth Obser­va­tion (
