RADAR expert for land monitoring

About: A Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) specialist for land monitoring: As a researcher you execute and shape applied research in the domain of SAR remote sensing in combination with optical RS data linked to vegetation in the application domains of agriculture and nature. This means that your work will have an emphasis on Remote Sensing-enabled Essential Biodiversity Variables (RS-EBVs) including plant traits such as phenology, biomass, vegetation height and structure, next to monitoring agriculture, crop classifications, crop area estimates, identification farming activities such as mowing, crop yield estimation, and environmental variables (all related to CAP). You will integrate Radar and Optical remote sensing by software engineering (including programming) in applications (e.g. with Sentinel 1 and 2). For this reason you will work closely with other researchers in the field of optical remote sensing, land monitoring, crop yield forecasting, UAVs, big data analysis, and software engineering, within a data driven and quantitative systems approach. You acquire and position your research in a national and international context, in collaboration with colleagues and international partners.

Tasks combine project leadership of smaller to medium-sized projects, project execution (with data, models and remote sensing products), presentation of research results, training, project acquisition together with team mates and customer consultation.

Where: Wageningen Environmental University & Research, The Netherlands

PhD on 3D Data Fusion of Complex Environments in the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Geospatial Systems funded by Ordnance Survey

Deadline: Monday 8th July

The PhD on 3D data fusion for complex environments will develop novel approaches to fusion of 3D geospatial data, from traditional airborne photogrammetry but using oblique cameras, to high- and low-altitude unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), vehicle-mounted roadside survey vans, and the streams of data from connected and autonomous vehicles, through to indoor mapping technologies. The aim of this project is to explore different requirements for 3D data from different application sectors and use this to drive research into a flexible framework to manage and integrate 3D data from different sources. Ordnance Survey will supply data, use cases and research support. Students will have an opportunity to undertake a placement within Ordnance Survey of between 1 and 3 months, during the PhD, and they will also have the opportunity to attend the Ordnance Survey PhD workshop events.

To apply to Nottingham, select the ‘Apply for a course’ option at the MyNottingham portal and follow the instructions on the University Postgraduate Study page. Please attach a covering letter and CV. In the covering letter, please quote ‘Engineering Surveying and Space Geodesy’ as the reference, mention the CDT and Professor Stuart Marsh, the Nottingham CDT Director. Also state the PhD topic of interest as 3D Data Fusion and describe how your interests and experience relate to the CDT. Attach degree transcripts and certificates and, if English is not your first language, a copy of your English language qualifications.
