Subject: Postdoc at the University of Edinburgh: Tundra Drone Ecology

Hello all,

We are looking for an enthusiastic postdoctoral researcher to join the
"TeamShrub" research group at the University of Edinburgh to explore
tundra greening patterns using drone ecology (a.k.a. UAVs or remotely
piloted aircraft systems).

See link:

This postdoc position will focus on testing the correspondence between
remotely-sensed tundra greening and plot-based measures of tundra
vegetation change. The research will involve the coordination of field
data collection in the Canadian Arctic and hierarchical modelling of
remotely sensed data and large tundra vegetation change datasets,
interpreting results and writing manuscripts. This postdoc position is
part of the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) funded grant
“Climate as a driver of shrub expansion and tundra greening”.

The candidate will be based in the School of GeoSciences at the
University of Edinburgh, but also encouraged to engage fully with
international collaborators based at institutions across Europe and
North America. This post is full time, fixed term for 24 months and is
available from 1st March 2016, or as soon as possible thereafter.

Apply here:
