    • development of innovative SLR related hardware (e.g. photonics) and/or software (e.g. ML methods) technologies.
  • Experience in deriving science output from SLR observations.

Your tasks:

  • Strengthening the leading position of the IWF Graz as SLR institution;
  • Supporting an existing research group with focus on SLR technology development and operation with a direct link to the IWF’s aspiration to contribute to the theme of space safety & space ecology;
  • New developments and research in accordance with the scientific core activities of IWF;
  • Managerial support (jointly with senior engineers of the research group) for existing projects (incl., big data SL projects, attitude determination) and collaborations (incl., ILRS, SDLR);
