Lecturer in Remote Sensing at University of St Andrews

Thomas Cowton

We are now advertising for a Lecturer in Remote Sensing at the University of St Andrews, Scotland. Glaciology is one of the key areas in which we would like to appoint. Please see below for further details.

 

The School of Geography and Sustainable Development is seeking to appoint a suitably-qualified person to a new lectureship in remote sensing, building on recent appointments in physical geography and on-going collaborations with the Scottish Oceans Institute. The person appointed will bring expertise in remote sensing methods and analysis to the School and should have demonstrated expertise in applying remote sensing to physical geography and/or related disciplines. Applicants with experience in using remote sensing in the fields of glaciology/cryospheric science, tropical ecology or ocean science are particularly welcomed. The successful candidate will contribute to the development of the Bell-Edwards Centre for Geographical Data Visualisation and Analysis, a new facility for inter-disciplinary research and teaching in the School of Geography and Sustainable Development.

The School has a very active research culture and strong track record of research that ‘makes a difference’ in terms of wider impact and engagement with stakeholders. The candidate will be affiliated with the Environmental Change Research Group. In terms of teaching, the new appointment will develop undergraduate and postgraduate teaching and courses on remote sensing methods, in addition to contributing to new and existing modules on GIS and physical geography.

The University is committed to equality for all, demonstrated through our working on diversity awards (ECU Athena SWAN/Race Charters; Carer Positive; LGBT Charter; and Stonewall).  More details can be found at 
http://www.st-andrews.ac.uk/hr/edi/diversityawards/.


Closing Date: 31 December 2017

The School of Geosciences at the University of Edinburgh is advertising for a Chancellor fellow (tenure-track faculty) in Space and Satellite analysis. Please see below for details:

https://www.vacancies.ed.ac.uk/pls/corehrrecruit/erq_jobspec_version_4.jobspec?p_id=042846

Applications are invited from early career individuals of the highest potential and attainment who have begun to establish a reputation for the excellent and innovative research and teaching at the forefront of their discipline. The College of Science and Engineering is committed to supporting the next generation of academic leaders in data sciences and artificial intelligence and proposes to appoint up to 10 new Chancellor’s Fellows in Data-Driven Innovation. The Space and Satellite Analysis theme is one of three being led by the College of Science and Engineering and the successful candidates are likely to be hosted in one of the following academic units: the School of GeoSciences, the School of Physics and Astronomy, the School of Engineering or the School of Mathematics; and be allied to the Bayes Centre.

The Space & Satellite Analysis theme covers the broad area of satellite downstream services and applications are welcome from data scientists whose work is applicable to one or many academic disciplines. Candidates are encouraged to follow the links below to information posted by potential host Schools. These detail likely areas of interest or synergy and those interested in the opportunity are encouraged to contact the academics listed for informal discussion.


Closing Date: 12 March 2018

Lecturer / Senior Lecturer in 3D environmental data capture at the University of Edinburgh

Noel Gourmelen-3
In reply to this post by Thomas Cowton

The School of GeoSciences, University of Edinburgh, is seeking to appoint a Lecturer or Senior Lecturer in 3D environmental data capture.  We seek to recruit an outstanding colleague with either an established or an emergent profile using computational analyses of satellite/airborne 3D data to address environmental challenges such as landslides and flooding, ice cover change, deforestation, land use change, food security, natural resource management, and smart city agendas.

The post-holder will be expected to: pursue internationally-recognised independent research; deliver and develop teaching at UG and PG levels (including supervision of PhD students); undertake administrative duties in teaching, student support or university administration; secure research funding commensurate with the level of post; and engage in impact and knowledge exchange.

The School has a strong reputation for global change research, with research groups investigating the dynamics of the cryosphere, biosphere, oceans, atmosphere and landscapes. The School has a well-developed research base in geodatascience and earth observation, and an active Airborne GeoSciences unit.

Candidates should hold a PhD in a related discipline, have teaching experience and a publication record commensurate with career stage.

Salary range: £39,992 - £47,722 (UE08) or £50,618 - £56,950 (UE09).
