Applications are invited for a Research Associate to join Dr Emily Lines’ UKRI Future Leaders Fellowship project “Next generation forest dynamics modelling using remote sensing data”. This is an interdisciplinary project at the intersection of ecology, remote sensing, and data science. The successful candidate will have experience and expertise in quantitative and computational approaches in ecology and/or remote sensing.
The post holder will carry out extensive fieldwork in forest plots across the UK and Europe, which may include physically strenuous activities and you will be required to carry equipment whilst hiking over sometimes difficult terrain. You will collect forest structural information using terrestrial and drone-based remote sensing, and develop new computational methods to extract ecologically relevant information about individual trees and the data will be used to understand linkages between forest structure and dynamics. The post holder will work closely with PI Dr Emily Lines and co-I Dr Stuart Grieve (QMUL), and will collaborate with UK and international project partners from both academic and commercial research organisations.
