This role is for a Research Associate/Fellow to work as part of a UK Space Agency International Partnership Programme (IPP2) funded project called “Peatland Assessment In SE Asia With Satellite (PASSES)”. 

We are looking for an Earth Observation specialist who has experience in working principally with optical satellite data (Sentinel -2 and -3) and ancillary data (e.g., ground measurements, LiDAR, Sentinel-1 amplitude). Working with these data your task will be to deliver peatland condition products underpinned by open source data processing to others within the project (both in the commercial sector (e.g., CGI) and the academic sector) and to our project partners in South East Asia.

The aim of the overall project is to produce a comprehensive and cost effective satellite-enabled monitoring solution for tropical peatlands using the Sentinel satellites (more about the project here: https://www.gov.uk/government/news/uk-space-agency-to-run-22mil-project-in-malaysia-indonesia). 

This full-time post is fixed-term until 30 September 2019.

Informal enquiries may be addressed to Doreen Boyd, email: doreen.boyd@nottingham.ac.uk. Please note that applications sent directly to this email address will not be accepted.
