The University of Stirling invites applications for a Research Fellow in Earth Observation to join the Earth and Planetary Observation Science Research Group. We are looking for a candidate with expertise in remote sensing of inland, coastal and marine environments to (i) lead an assessment of existing and emerging end-user and stakeholder needs with a particular focus on Copernicus water services (as part of the H2020 WaterForce project) and (ii) the development of an integrated observatory for the Black Sea (as part of the H2020 DOORS project).
The successful candidate will be expected to engage with the international scientific community, policymakers and various water-related sectors to assess their needs and expectations with respect to Earth observation data and services. As an integral member of the research group, the postholder will apply their skill set to execute in situ sampling campaigns, to work on the development and validation of satellite observations, and to undertake the curation, processing and analysis of in situ and satellite datasets for the Black Sea.
In addition, the postholder will be expected to play a central role in supporting the development of a roadmap for the next Copernicus services for inland waters. The postholder will be well versed in developing scalable Earth observation products that support the monitoring and sustainable management of inland and marine waters.
