You initiate, carry out and participate in education, research, and consulting activities on the extraction of large scale geo-information from data of imaging sensors. The increasing availability of low-cost imaging sensors and sensor platforms creates abundant opportunities and challenges in photogrammetry. In research projects you will develop methods for efficient information extraction from large collections of images for applications in e.g. civil engineering, navigation, and industry. You are able to discuss and find solutions for information acquisition problems emerging within ITC’s research and consulting projects and initiate contacts to develop multi-disciplinary research projects. You will teach, assist, and supervise MSc and PhD students, contribute to the development of educational modules and new blended learning packages at various levels of education and actively participate in joint educational programmes with ITC’s partner institutes abroad. You may share responsibility in the management of the department. You actively participate in national and international professional societies.
