Join us and be part of the future of Ocean and Earth science.
We are seeking to make a Faculty appointment in the area of Ocean and Earth as part of a series of 4 new appointments to further enhance our research-led education and extend the international reach of our research and enterprise activities. This will be the first part of a series planned appointments over the next five years. You will have an exciting opportunity to influence the Ocean and Earth sciences agenda within a world leading school at the University of Southampton. Our School takes pride in research that spans marine biology and ecology, physical oceanography, palaeoceanography and paleoclimate, marine biogeochemistry, geology and geophysics and geochemistry. We lead the prestigious NERC INSPIRE Doctoral Training Programme (DTP) and are home to one of the largest graduate schools in Ocean and Earth Science in the world, with >150 PhD students. We are integral to both the interdisciplinary Southampton Marine and Maritime Institute and Institute for Life Sciences. We are home to the only Regius Chair in Ocean Sciences in the country. Based at the National Oceanography Centre Southampton site we have a range of unique and world class facilities. We collaborate broadly both nationally and internationally, including our close collaborative relationships with the independent National Oceanography Centre.
We seek applications from individuals using innovative computational approaches to pursue outstanding research questions at the interfaces among earth, ocean, climate and life sciences. You will have a growing international profile that adds a new dimension to the thriving research programs across our interdisciplinary School of Ocean and Earth Science (SOES). Based at the National Oceanography Centre Southampton, home to the Marine Autonomous Robotic Systems fleet, and with strong links to the Southampton Marine and Maritime Institute, GeoData institute, and world-class supercomputer facilities across the University, SOES is ideally located to support innovative research agendas in this field.
You will take a data and/or computer science approach to exploit the opportunities presented by vast data sets. For example datasets generated by increased deployment of autonomous systems featuring high-resolution sensor and imaging capability, or large equipment arrays. You might leverage those data to answer outstanding research questions spanning geospatial, climatic, geohazards, biological tracking or oceanographic fields. Your specialisms in data analytics might include the analysis of big data through Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, uncertainty quantification, and/or data assimilation and integration.
