Fully Funded NERC PhD Studentship Available in Environmental Earth Observation

Subject: Remote Sensing of Carbon, Crops, Biomass Burning, Fire Weather and/or Smoke Spectroscopy & Chemistry

Location: King's College London (UK Citizens only are eligible for the full NERC funding)

The opportunity has arisen for a fully-funded PhD student to work on a research project within the team at King's College London, led by Prof. Martin Wooster.  The studentship will focus on aspects of Earth Observation related to Carbon, Biomass Burning, Fire Weather and/or Smoke Spectroscopy & Chemistry, and will likely include periods of fieldwork in addition to satellite and in situ data analysis.  See wildfire.geog.kcl.ac.uk for examples of the groups work.  An alternative project is also possible in the field of UAV 'drone' based remote sensing for improving agricultural field trials, in this case with substantial external UK collaboration.

The PhD will be based within the Department of Geography, King's College London - located in Central London - and we welcome candidates with a strong background in any aspect of physical science, engineering, geography or maths, ideally with some knowledge of remote sensing/Earth Observation. This opportunity has become available at short notice due to a previously selected candidate being offered a full-time permanent position elsewhere.  The studentship must therefore be filled very quickly, but will be awarded in competition and interested candidates should have a 2:1 or 1st class UG degree, and ideally a predicted or actual Distinction grade as Masters level.

 Interested persons should send a short email outlining their possible interest and ideally an academic CV to Professor Martin Wooster (martin.wooster@kcl.ac.uk). This should be sent before Monday 29th April, and we apologise for the unavoidably short notice.  Interviews will take place week 6th May.
