The Joint Nature Conservation Committee (JNCC) is the statutory adviser to the UK Government and Devolved Administrations on UK and international nature conservation. One of JNCC’s key roles is provision of evidence on biodiversity and ecosystems. JNCC are looking to recruit a full time Ecosystems Support Officer based in Peterborough. This is a 2 year fixed term appointment.
The Ecosystem Support Officer will work in the Ecosystem Analysis team. This technical team coordinates a range of National Species Monitoring Schemes and delivers analytical work using modelling and earth observation methods. The post holder will work across an interesting range of projects both within the UK and internationally, including across the UK Overseas Territories.
The position advertised would require someone with strong GIS skills to support the management and analysis of a variety of spatial data sources, from species samples to earth observation data. Ideally, candidates will have broad relevant ecological knowledge.
Construction site layout planning is a complex problem and greatly affects project cost, construction safety, and overall productivity. Frequent changes and dynamic work environments on construction sites impose a need to develop an automated approach to capture the 3D site layout. This project exploits the recent technological advancement on using laser scanning and 3D-photogrammetry to extract data in a form of point cloud, and aims to streamline the site planning process by developing interactive 3D geometrical models. Space optimisation mechanism and rule-based criteria are integrated with the 3D models to provide an efficient and cost-effective approach for construction site planning.
The ideal candidate for this project would have a degree in construction management / architecture / engineering / computer science and with relevant experience on programming, 3D modelling and developing optimisation mechanism. Additional skills and experience on developing algorithm of computational geometry, knowledge on geo-space standard, BIM, IFC, GIS standard, CityGML, are desirable. The candidate should also satisfy the usual entry requirement of PhD degree at UNSW.
Many Earth observation platforms (drones, micro-satellites) have become inexpensive, recording massive amounts of data via thermal, colour, infrared, and radar cameras for different applications, such as urban planning, vegetation dynamics monitoring, and natural hazard monitoring. Living in the age of big remote sensing data, currently we face challenges in managing, processing, and efficiently exploiting these data for socio-economic and environmental applications. This project will develop novel 3D data fusion modelling using voxels for context-based, automated information processing and extraction from large databases of disparate remote sensing imagery to bring new perspectives on phenomenon understanding and prediction.
The candidate must have a background in Geomatics with a strong interest in image analysis, OR a background in computer vision with a strong interest in 3D spatial information. In both cases, the candidate should have good programming skills, competence in 3D modelling and spatial analysis, understanding of machine learning, and fascination for Earth science applications.
The Remote Sensing Research Group (RSGB) has an opening of a Postdoc position on remote sensing of snow extent (SE). This position is part of
a new project funded by the European Space Agency (ESA) in the frame of the Climate Change Initiative (CCI) program.
The UK Space Agency is seeking to recruit enthusiastic, top talent to lead the development of Satellite Earth Observation data policy and its data infrastructure strategy.
This is an exciting opportunity to join the UK Space Agency just as the UK is taking the leading role in the European Space Agency’s (ESA) Earth Observation programmes, negotiating its future relationship with the EU and building bilateral missions. The post holder will join a dynamic team and quickly build responsibilities to work within the Agency, with UK and international industry and academia. The post holder will provide a vital role in the EO team as it looks to shape the future of earth observation domestically and globally and as it delivers cutting edge research and technology.

Pixalytics is looking Senior Earth Observation Specialist to support the development, and growth, of the company. The role will primarily be supporting international focussed projects on agriculture, although there will be opportunities to be involved in other work such as our online products launching later this year.
Full-time fixed term-position, corresponding to §2 Abs. 2 WissZeitVG, for initially 2 years with a possible extension in a collaborative project. The main focus of this initiative are transformation processes of agricultural systems and land use patterns in the Mediterranean region. In this region the project will conduct pilot studies and establish academic networks. The overall goal is the submission of research proposals to inter-disciplinary, third-party funded programs.
The positions cannot be shared. Main place of service is Witzenhausen; regular stays of several months in the target countries will be required.
Deadline for application: 01.02.2018
The REA Space Unit is looking for high-level remote sensing and commercial experts for the H2020 Space calls closing on the 6th of March 2018. The fields of earth observation topics are listed below and the topic description is available in the H2020 Space work programme.
