W1-Professor Interdisciplinary Geographic Information Science with Tenure Track

The future holder of the position contributes significantly to the ongoing process of focussing research activities in the field “Transformation of Metropolitan Spaces”, which is the core area of interdisciplinary research at the Department of Geography. By means of spatio-temporal analysis of geodata and heterogeneous mobile data, the spatial effects of societal and economic transformation processes shall be investigated. This research will contribute significantly to the interdisciplinary research field “Digital Transformation in Economy and Society”. The willingness for an active cooperation in the Interdisciplinary Center for Geoinformation (IZG) at RUB is expected as well as the active participation in the UAR (University Alliance Ruhr) field of competence “Metropolitan Research”.

Preferably, research is oriented towards the following areas:

  • Spatio-temporal 2D/3D-analysis of transformative processes and development of scenarios, based on
  • Data capture and interdisciplinary integration of geodata as well as
  • Analysis of (real time) geoinformation of sensor networks, mobile devices and user generated geodata, respecting
  • Interoperability, geodata infrastructure and standardization.

Earth Observation Specialist

Type of appointment: Permanent
Location: Peterborough, UK
Closing date: 08 October 2018

The Joint Nature Conservation Committee (JNCC) is the statutory adviser to Government on UK and international nature conservation. One of JNCC’s key roles is provision of evidence on biodiversity and ecosystems, and the application of this evidence to assessing, valuing, and managing natural resources/capital assets. A key part of our evidence provision comes from developing techniques for applying satellite Earth Observations, in combination with other data sources, to quantifying habitats, and detecting change in their management, condition and the pressures affecting them, and to map ecosystem services.

The post will be part of the Ecosystems Analysis Team which brings together three elements:

  • An earth observation data processing and analytical capability which is migrating from an initial focus in spatial mapping of habitats to detecting change within spatial frameworks of habitats.
  • A set of long term partnerships with bodies undertaking species surveillance through networks of volunteers
  • An analysis and modelling capability with a maturing set of rapidly deployable models. The initial focus has been on multi species distribution modelling to predict outcomes taking into account land use and climate.

Lecturer in Geomatic Engineering

Closing date: 30 September 2018
Planned salary: Lecturer F: GBP 35,210 – GBP 39,610 per annum / Lecturer G: GBP 40,792 – GBP 48,676 per annum

Apply Form: Click here.

Job description:

The Geomatics Group within the School of Engineering is seeking to appoint a Lecturer in Geomatic Engineering, to complement our existing strengths in GNSS geodesy, InSAR, and geometric remote sensing. You will be motivated and have the potential for world-leading research in any observation-led aspect of geospatial engineering and science, including higher geodesy, RF/acoustic/inertial positioning, and geometric remote sensing (including laser/radar altimetry, InSAR, laser scanning and photogrammetry), but we particularly seek someone with expertise in offshore and subsea positioning, hydrographic survey, or other aspects of physical/geophysical geodesy.

You will have an emerging research track record and growing international visibility and contribute to the full spectrum of the group’s activities including research, teaching and leadership. Geomatics has a strong track record of UKRI and industry funded collaborative research projects with national/international groups including membership of the NERC Centre for the Observation and Modelling of Earthquakes, Volcanoes and Tectonics (COMET+), and hosts the UK’s premier specialist undergraduate programmes in the discipline.
