Technical Support

To support the UrbanFluxes research project and other complementary projects. To

install and maintain instruments for the data collection. To undertake data analysis to

ensure that the quality of the data are appropriate for the applications. To undertake

other activities as needed to support the research of the group.

Main duties and responsibilities

 Application of skills and knowledge to provide a focused range of technical support

activities. Work activities will typically follow an established pattern, with clear procedures

in place to provide guidance on a daily basis.

 Help support the EU Horizon 2020 UrbanFluxes project

 Installation and maintenance of instrumentation (e.g. radiative fluxes, surface

temperature, wireless network, sensible and latent heat fluxes, etc)

 Contribute to the GIS mapping of London:

 Contribute to the modelling of the storage heat flux, sensible heat flux, latent heat

flux, anthropogenic heat flux

 Effectively communicate and collaborate with project partners to facilitate cross

disciplinary research with the international colleagues

 Contribute to the preparation of reports and articles to achieve milestones and

deliverables (journal articles, conference presentations, materials for workshops etc),

often with tight deadlines, as specified in the project description in collaboration

with project partners

 

Post Doc

A fixed term (24 month) appointment for a scientist to work on the URBANFLUXES

(URBan Anthropogenic heat FLUX from Earth observation Satellites) and other closely

related projects. This project is funded by the European Union Horizon 2020. The main

goal of the project is to investigate the potential of Earth Observation (EO) to retrieve

anthropogenic heat fluxes at local and city scales. The project will involve determination of

each of the urban energy balance fluxes using a number of different techniques. The project

involves an international consortium that will work closely together to fulfil the research

objectives. The post will be based in the Department of Meteorology, University of

Reading, UK.

Main duties and responsibilities

 Contribute to installation and maintenance of instrumentation (radiative fluxes , surface

temperature, wireless network, sensible and latent heat fluxes, etc)

 Contribute to the GIS mapping of London: using data from LiDAR, SAR to identify Local

Climate Zones, ground truthing

 Contribute to the modelling and evaluation of the storage heat, sensible heat, latent

heat flux and anthropogenic heat fluxes

 Effectively communicate and collaborate with project partners to facilitate cross

disciplinary research with the international colleagues

 Contribute to the preparation of reports and articles to achieve milestones and

deliverables (journal articles, conference presentations, materials for workshops etc),

often with tight deadlines, as specified in the project description in collaboration with

project partners
