The post holder will join the King’s Earth Observation and Wildfire Research Group, developing and testing methods to characterise vegetation and environmental status using thermal infrared (TIR) methods. Primarily focused on mapping land surface temperature (LST) and energy fluxes, including evapotranspiration (ET) driven by airborne TIR imaging over vegetated environments, but with some urban environments possibly considered. There will be opportunities to get involved in parallel work aiming to deliver downscaled LST (and possibly ET) information from EO satellites. Strong experience in thermal remote sensing, in using data from field, satellite and/or airborne sensors, and good computing abilities are essential. Fieldwork will occur in UK, Europe and China and the work will form part of a UK-China cooperation programme involving multiple partners.
This post will be offered on a fixed-term contract until 13/02/2022.
This is a part-time 50% FTE.
The selection process will include a panel interview, an assessment, and a presentation.
