The College wishes to recruit an Associate Research Fellow to support
the work of Dr Karen Anderson and Prof Kevin Gaston based at the
University of Exeter Cornwall Campus within the Environment and
Sustainability Institute. This Natural Environment Research Council
funded post (working on a project entitled, "Fragments, functions and
flows - the scaling of biodiversity and ecosystem services in urban
ecosystems") is available from 1st June 2012 on a fixed term contract
for 42 months. The successful applicant will have a PhD in a
quantitative discipline and proven experience in working with remote
sensing data in pure or applied contexts. Experience of working in
interdisciplinary environments, ability to work in the field and a track
record of scientific publication is desirable.

The post will include spatial analysis of a range of airborne remote
sensing datasets including LiDAR and hyperspectral data of urban areas.
A novel aspect of this work will involve analysis of full waveform LiDAR
data for assessing habitat structure within urban landscapes. The
successful applicant will work within an interdisciplinary team
comprising ecologists and social scientists and will be jointly
responsible for writing academic papers and participating in project
meetings. The successful applicant will be able to present information
on research progress and outcomes, communicate complex information,
orally, in writing and electronically and prepare proposals and
applications to external bodies. Applicants should hold a full UK
driving license.

Applicants will possess a relevant PhD and be able to demonstrate
sufficient knowledge in the discipline and of research methods and
techniques to work within established research programmes. Applicants
should have capabilities in processing and extracting information from
spatial datasets using programming languages, Geographical Information
Systems and image processing approaches. An understanding of remote
sensing applications in ecology and/or urban landscapes is desirable.
