Could you please advertize this position:

Study of the distribution of the atmospheric water vapour in a tropical
area from GPS data (Tahiti island)

The aim of this post-doctoral research is to model, from the GPS data
acquired at the Geodesy Observatory of Tahiti, the delays of propagation
of GPS signals caused by the dry and wet atmosphere, over the five to
seven last years. We will correlate the obtained results with all the
available weather data in order to obtain a daily 3D scan of the water
vapour over the site of the Observatory. This will permit both physical
studies of the atmosphere, and the elaboration of GPS daily correction
models valid both in azimuth and elevation for a better determination of
the vertical positioning of the Observatory.

Skills required: PhD in Geodesy/Geomatics, Geophysics or Applied
Mathematics, good command of a programming language, fluency in French or

Duration: 16 months, starting October 2007, at the University of French
Polynesia (Punaauia, near Papeete).

Please email cover letter, resume and two references (all in pdf
format)to: Pr Jean-Pierre Barriot, Head of the Geodesy Observatory of
Tahiti, at barriot at upf.pf. Deadline for application: august 15th, 2007. No
citizenship requirements, but the succesfull candidate will have to be
cleared by the Immigration Bureau of French Polynesia
