[Met-jobs] Research Associate Post at King's College London

Based at the Strand Campus this post is based within the research team of 
Professor Martin Wooster and focused on the study of biomass burning and their 
emissions to the atmosphere. Whilst based at King’s, the appointee will also be 
affiliated the NERC National Centre for Earth Observation (NCEO).

The post holder will work on development, use and exploitation of satellite 
data, alongside other environmental datasets. They will study particular 
biomass burning episodes, most likely those exacerbated by the recent (and 
currently ongoing) El Nino event, and will exploit new fire radiative power 
(FRP) measurements now provided by geostationary and polar orbiting spacecraft. 
Some improvement of algorithms required to turn the ‘raw’ satellite thermal 
observations into information on active fires maybe required.

Applicants should have strong experience of working with satellite data/ 
products and be able to code in Python and/or IDL. Experience of working with a 
combination of datasets to investigate particular environmental phenomena will 
be a significant advantage, in order to develop definitive records of 
particular biomass burning episodes.
