Based at the Strand Campus this appointment is associated with a NERC funded 
research project and with the EUMETSAT funded development of fire radiative 
power (FRP) products from geostationary satellites. 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 (i) development, use, validation and exploitation 
of satellite remote sensing data related to landscape biomass burning, 
alongside other environmental datasets OR (ii) use of open path FTIR 
spectroscopy and associated techniques for the investigation of biomass burning 
smoke constituents (gases and particles). A mix of both aspects will also be 
considered, depending on expertise.

The applicant should either have experience of working with polar orbiting 
and/or geostationary active fire remote sensing data in particular, but also 
potentially burned area datasets. Ideally they will be able to contribute to 
the development of improvements in active fire detection algorithms. They 
should understand in detail how such data can be converted into estimates of 
fuel consumption and smoke emissions, for use in atmospheric modelling. Or the 
candidate should have experience of operating equipment in the field, of the 
measurement principles of gases and aerosols in pollutant plumes. The ability 
to undertake fieldwork and to work effectively with other types of 
environmental instrumentation will also be a valuable skill for both work areas.
