Third-cycle subject: Geoinformatics
The candidate for the licentiate position is expected to participate in a research project entitled “Sentinel-1 SAR and Sentinel-2 MSI Data for Urban Change Detection with Deep Learning’ under the supervision of the project manager.
The overall objective of this research is to develop innovative and robust methods and algorithms that use multitemporal Earth observation (EO) data in general, Sentinel-1 SAR and Sentinel-2 MSI data in particular, for urbanization monitoring in support of sustainable urban development.
The tasks and responsibilities include algorithm development, image processing, classification and change detection, writing reports, scientific articles and licentiate thesis.
Target degree: Licentiate

Tree failures, which typically occur during severe storms, regularly cause severe disruption to transport and power networks. Operators of infrastructure networks and public spaces face the difficult task of managing the many millions of trees that are in their areas of responsibility, in order to minimise the risks of failure.

Applications are invited for the undergraduate and postgraduate teaching activities related to engineering surveying with the Department of Civil Engineering and the Faculty of Engineering.
In particular, the role will mainly involve providing technical support for student practicals, field courses and projects, using all forms of engineering surveying techniques and their associated equipment, IT, software and date, including, but not limited to, levelling, total station work, GNSS, laser scanning, and photogrammetry. The successful candidate will be part of a team including a Senior Technical Officer, overseen by the Faculty Technical Operations Manager, and will be expected to work as part of this team to continuously improve their knowledge and understanding related to the engineering surveying techniques listed above.
This post is full-time (36.25 hours per week) and is offered on a permanent contract. Job share arrangements may be considered.
Salary: £23334 to £27830 per annum (pro-rata if applicable) depending on skills and experience. Salary progression beyond this scale is subject to performance.
Closing Date: Thursday, 31st January 2019
You will be motivated and have the potential for world-leading research in one or more of the geodesy, surveying, hydrography or photogrammetry and remote sensing (any of laser/radar altimetry, InSAR, laser scanning, photogrammetry) domains of the geospatial engineering sciences.
Lecturer F: £35,210 – £39,610 per annum
Lecturer G: £40,792 – £48,676 per annum
Closing date: 14 January 2019
Location of position: London
