https://www.hirewire.co.uk/HE/1061247/MS_JobDetails.aspx?JobID=69150 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.
