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:

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.
Postdoctoral Researcher in the project “Patterns and drivers of global land-cover & land-use changes” (2-3 years, 100% TV-L 13).
The postdoc will focus on feedbacks between climate, fire, vegetation and carbon in the high latitudes.
The PhD student will focus on carbon emissions from arctic-boreal fires
In this role you will lead the technical development and production of a system for detecting post-fire recruitment failure remotely, using input from earth observation imagery and field observations. In collaboration with a Research Associate based in Durham you will publish your outcomes in peer-reviewed journals of international standing. You will represent the University of Leicester at international project meetings and presenting your progress of the research to international project partners, presenting your findings at academic and professional conferences.
This is a Full time, fixed term contract to 31 December 2019.
The closing date for applications is midnight on 13 August 2018.
The School of Civil and Environmental Engineering at UNSW is seeking to appoint an outstanding academic to conduct high impact research, deliver outstanding teaching and student experience, build industry engagement, and demonstrate leadership in the field of Geospatial Engineering.
