We are the Helmholtz Innovation Lab “Remote Sensing for Sustainable Resource Use”– FERN.Lab, and since our founding in 2020 we are part of Section 1.4 "Remote Sensing and Geoinformatics" (Department 1 "Geodesy"). FERN.Lab is a physical lab to be set up, which is intended to establish itself as a technology platform for application-oriented, trans-disciplinary method developments for the analysis of remote sensing data. To improve the transfer activities of the entire Department of Geodesy, the Lab acts as an interface between scientific expertise and cooperation partners and customers.
Over the past decades the Geodesy Department has developed strong expertise on processing high-resolution optical, thermal and radar image data, parameter derivation from imaging spectroscopy, deriving time-variable evaluations of earth gravity measurements, the development of inexpensive receivers for GNSS data for high-precision position determination, monitoring of greenhouse gas emissions, as well as on the application of sensor simulations and big data analyses. From the world-wide recognized Geodesy Department’s expertise, FERN.Lab intends to create innovative geographic information products and services to improve the work of companies, authorities and non-governmental organizations in the areas of environmental monitoring, smart farming, raw material exploration, groundwater monitoring or infrastructure monitoring.
We are growing and our team is looking for you - enthusiastic, goal-oriented and with the affinity to lead scientific methods to commercial success - to support our software development activities! Enrich our team, consisting of management, business development, PR, software development and scientists from GFZ, and actively help shaping FERN.Lab through your creativity and commitment. Let’s work together in search of new ideas and products, but most important, help each other to excel and further develop our own skills.
We look forward to receiving your application!
