A new Research Associate position is becoming available within the Research Cluster led by Professor Martin Wooster at King's College London (KCL), concentrating on the study of biomass burning using satellite Earth Observation, simulation modelling and in situ and remote sensing measurement techniques. The Post is related to simulating vegetation fires and their observation by airborne or spaceborne infrared remote sensing - including their Fire Radiative Power (FRP). It aims to understand relations between this and parameters such as the intensity of the fire and the observation geometry. The work will include the use of a fire front propagation model, CFD modeling (eg FDS: fire.nist.gov/fds/), a radiative transfer model (DART), and experiments at small (seehttp://www.kcl.ac.uk/sspp/departments/geography/people/academic/wooster/20JGRcalibration.pdf) and larger scale (seehttp://www.atmos-chem-phys.net/11/11591/2011/acp-11-11591-2011.html). There will be opportunities to collaborate with the team developing the DART model in CESBIO (France) and to contribute to a number of ongoing project in the KCL team (seehttp://wildfire.geog.kcl.ac.uk/ and publication examples at tinyurl.com/mwooster). Applicants should have research experience in one or more of the following areas: fire spread modelling, CFD, radiative transfer modelling, deployment of in situ measurement devices during field campaigns. An understanding of biomass burning processes and effects would be useful, and candidates are expected to be able to work with large datasets, to write computer code (ideally IDL and/or Python) and to be able to communicate clearly in English. A contract for at least 12 months will be provided in the first instance. Application deadline is 01/06/2012. Please contact Pr Martin Wooster for more details firstname.lastname@example.org
