The team at the University of Birmingham have spent a number of years investigating new and innovative ways in which to measure the urban climate. The result has been the Birmingham Urban Climate Laboratory which was established as an exemplar network to meet the demand for urban observations in the canopy layer. It comprises of an array of 84 wireless air ‘Internet of Things’ temperature sensors nested within a coarser array of 24 automatic weather stations. A new research project now seeks to extend the network by making high resolution measurements in the boundary layer. This will be achieved by the use of Biotelemetry/bio-aerial-platforms as a novel and practicable solution to the data paucity above rooftop height. The project will develop a suite of Avian-Meteorology-Instrument Packages (initially measuring temperature and wind) for deployment in Birmingham as a suitably large and heterogeneous test case. The applicant will be responsible for the continued routine maintenance of surface weather monitoring equipment across the Birmingham conurbation and will also extensively contribute to the development of the Avian-Meteorology-Instrument Packages and associated field data collection and processing. The post-holder will also be responsible for the organisation, quality and provision of weather data to staff, students and external organisations. The project calls for an individual with significant experience of working with weather monitoring equipment and data. A knowledge of dataloggers, communications (e.g. WiFi protocols) and programming (e.g. Matlab or R) is desirable, as is a general interest in urban climatology. A degree or higher degree in Climatology or other relevant subject in the physical sciences or engineering is considered essential, but suitable work experience will also be taken into account.
