A postdoc position is available between the Laboratory of Astrophysics and the Space Center of the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland. The position is part of a joint project with the CV Lab to develop tools to monitor and characterize satellites and space debris from ground based or in-orbit vantage points.
A motivated and talented postdoctoral researchers will be recruited to work on developing fast detection and characterization of satellites from ground-based imaging (from dedicated observations or from open access wide field astronomical observations [e.g. ESO/VST imaging data]).
The science interests are in particular:
