The School seeks to appoint a Lecturer in Geospatial Analysis, from 1st August 2018 or as soon as possible thereafter. Outstanding candidates with expertise in any area of GIS, cartography/visualisation or geospatial analysis/modelling will be considered, although we particularly welcome applicants with interests in applications of GIS to the environmental/urban sciences and engineering who will complement our existing strengths in spatial data modelling, pervasive sensor networks and remote sensing, infrastructure risk assessment, sustainability, and global change.
Our Geomatics group has a strong track record of RCUK funded collaborative research projects with national/international groups including the NERC Centre for Doctoral Training in Big Data, Risk and Mitigation (DREAM), as well as with the University’s Centre for Earth Systems Engineering Research and the School’s Water Resources, Geotechnical, Structures and Transport research groups. You will have the opportunity to collaborate with researchers in the new £2m ‘Spatial Analysis and Modelling at Newcastle’ ([email protected]) initiative, the Newcastle University Urban Observatory and EPSRC UKCRIC (UK Collaboratorium for Research on Infrastructure and Cities) initiatives on Integrated Urban Infrastructure Labs and the National Infrastructure Systems Database, Modelling, Simulation and Visualisation Facilities, and will be expected to develop links with other UK and international institutions.
You will have a proven research record in terms of publications and a relevant PhD (or equivalent), and proven or potential achievements in terms of research funding and international esteem. The appointee will contribute modules to our geomatics undergraduate and Master’s level degree programmes, which may include residential field courses.
You will have the ability to create, organise and present teaching and learning materials effectively and to supervise undergraduate and postgraduate students and projects. You will also demonstrate evidence of (or good potential for) leadership and teaching and research.
This post is tenable for 3 years in the first instance.
