Job description

Supply DescriptionPanorama Dynamics and EcologyLocation: Highfield Campus
Wage: £34,980 to £42,978
Full Time Mounted Time period (till 31/12/2025)
Closing Date: Wednesday 17 April 2024
Reference: 2671924WRAnalysis Fellow in Drivers of International Water and Sediment DynamicsThe submit holder will undertake scientific analysis on international river and sediment dynamics in help of the UKRI funded analysis undertaking, GLOSS (GLObal Suspended Sediment: drivers, traits and future trajectories). The researcher will work with a worldwide sediment database and use remotely sensed and different geographical information with machine studying/Bayesian Modelling strategies to ascertain drivers of world sediment flux. They may use numerical fashions and statistical processing strategies to ascertain patterns and future trajectories of world change.The submit holder will probably be anticipated to have the ability to find, curate and manipulate time-series international bodily geographical attribute datasets of relevance to river sediment dynamics (e.g. DEMs, precipitation, land use/cowl, reservoirs, inhabitants dynamics and so on.) utilizing GIS and bespoke code. These datasets will probably be used together with new estimates of world river suspended sediment fluxes to ascertain the bodily drivers of sediment variability, utilizing machine studying and Bayesian Modelling strategies. This submit is for 18 months and relies at College of Southampton.The College of Geography and Environmental Science is dedicated to fostering a tradition of equality, range and inclusion. We welcome functions from suitably certified candidates, and significantly encourage functions from candidates belonging to teams who’re under-represented inside educational posts on the College, together with, however not restricted to: individuals from Black and minority ethnic teams; and disabled individuals.

We’re a signatory to the Concordat to Help the Profession Improvement of Researchers and may present alternatives for profession growth and mentoring.Duties

  • Take a number one function in these elements of the undertaking which relate to establishing relationships between fluvial water/ sediment dynamics and the regional bodily drivers of change.
  • Write open-source scripts in Python or R to retrieve, handle, put together, analyse, and visualise information from quite a lot of sources, together with satellite tv for pc imagery and information of immediately monitored charges of sediment and water discharge.
  • Apply machine studying and/or Bayesian Modelling strategies to ascertain hyperlinks between drivers and suspended sediment fluxes.
  • Adapt current and develop new analysis methodologies and supplies.
  • Co-ordinate and collaborate with colleagues in associate organisations.
  • Lead the preparation of analysis publications for submission to peer-reviewed educational journals based mostly on the analysis undertaken.
  • Current papers at conferences, public conferences or seminars.
  • Contribute to the planning and organising of the analysis programme and undertaking information.

Choice standards

  • Maintain, or be near completion of a related PhD*/DPhil, along with expertise or curiosity in bodily geography, geomorphology, hydrology or equal
  • Possess robust GIS, giant dataset manipulation and coding abilities, ideally utilizing Python or R
  • Expertise of making use of machine studying and/or Bayesian Modelling strategies
  • Possess expertise downloading, extracting, and manipulating/analysing information from a various vary of information sources utilizing GIS or equal, together with satellite tv for pc imagery and/or utilizing Google Earth Engine
  • Be capable to handle personal educational analysis and related actions
  • Possess wonderful oral and written communication abilities
  • Functions for Analysis Fellow positions will probably be thought of from candidates who’re working in direction of or nearing completion of a related PhD qualification.
