Research Fellow (Spatial Data Science) - AR2135RSB
We are looking for candidates for a 14-month Postdoctoral Research Fellow post in Spatial Data Science. The post is located at the School of Geography & Sustainable Development at the University of St Andrews, to work on the project Uncovering the Mechanisms of Migratory Bird Navigation with Big Data Analytics, funded by the Leverhulme Trust.
This post presents an opportunity for a spatial data scientist to work with other data scientists and ecologists on an inherently interdisciplinary project. The research fellow will be responsible for development of new spatial data fusion methods for open geomagnetic and bird tracking data. These methods should overcome the heterogeneity of data sources and issues with diverse spatial and temporal scales at which data are collected.
The post holder will work in an interdisciplinary and international team, consisting of spatial data scientists at the University of St Andrews and ecologists at the Max Planck Institute for Ornithology (MPIO) in Germany. The holder will be expected to publish their findings in relevant venues in GIScience and ecology as well as contribute to the broader research within the grant that is funding the post.
Applicants should hold a PhD in geographic information science, remote sensing or a related spatial data science discipline and have an interest in movement ecology. The post also requires knowledge of coding and spatial data processing.
