Advt. No.: IIRS/P&GA/Estt./Rectt./09  Dated: June 11, 2014

Indian Institute of Remote Sensing (IIRS), a Unit of Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), is a premier institute for capacity building and research in the field of remote sensing and geoinformatics. The Institute has a multi-disciplinary and problem oriented research agenda focusing on developing land-ocean-atmosphere applications and understanding Earth’s surface and subsurface processes using primarily the space-based technologies. The research programmes are intricately linked to overall goal of ISRO towards operationalisation of space- based services for national development.

Applications are invited from young and motivated candidates for the post of JRF under the following research projects (1 Post in Each):
1. Vulnerability assessment of Mountain Ecosystems due to Climate change: Ecosytems structure and functioning (EOAM Project)
2. Estimation of snow cover area, snow physical parameters and glacier related studies in parts of Western Himalayas using microave and optical remote sensing (RISAT-UP project)
3. Mapping, Modelling, & Impact Assessment of Land Subsidence in Northern India (EOAM Project)
4. Remote Sensing based hydro-meterological data assimilation in the hydrological and weather forecasting models (EOAM Project)
5. IGBP-NCP- Soil Carbon Project (SCP) Phase-II of NRSC
6. Indian Bioresource Information Network (IBIN National Project)
