Are you a numerate physical scientist looking to contribute through science to the UK’s response to the climate emergency? The UK Earth Observation Climate Information Service (EOCIS), led from University of Reading, is recruiting a researcher in remote sensing (space-based Earth observation) to create new climate information for the UK. Climate information is an important tool in responding to climate change, in science, policymaking and business. EOCIS brings together UK expertise in Earth Observation to create and make available high quality, trustworthy climate information based on measurements of Earth’s environments from space.
This post will contribute to the development and production of high-resolution surface temperature information for the UK, across cities, rural landscapes, inland waters and the coastal zone. EOCIS involves 14 UK institutions and many international contacts, and the post will involve broad collaboration. Demand for Earth observation data and skills is increasing in part because of the need to respond to environmental challenges.
Fixed term contract ending in March 2025.
You will have:
A background in remote sensing and strong programming skills are desirable for this post.
The post holder will work within the world-class Department of Meteorology of the University of Reading, as part of an established team of scientists and a software specialist who undertake a range of research in applying thermal remote sensing to climate change challenges.
