UCL -- Mapping the land cover of the planet by satellite remote sensing time series and extracting key thematic information

Posted-Deadline 04/04/2018 -  20/04/2018
Type Job vacancy
Description The successful applicant will join a motivated team of young researchers in charge of research, production (2016-2019) and analysis of annual global land cover maps at 300 m resolution for the CCI / C3S Land Cover programs.

In close interaction with the European consortium members and other agencies like FAO and ESA, the new researcher will contribute on one hand to establish annual land cover map production at global scale, and on the other hand, to exploit the already produced land cover time series (1992-2015) to address global land change questions in the context of various collaborations. These activities are part of three complementary and demanding projects supported by the European Space Agency and the EU Copernicus program.

Tasks of the new researcher will include:
  • remote sensing research to improve land cover mapping methods in various parts of the world,
  • land time series analysis to derive the land cover statistics in close collaboration with FAO,
  • assessment of possible contribution of new satellites such as Sentinel-3,
  • reports and presentations on the work progress to the projects.

The new researcher will be supervised by an experienced scientist and the project science leader.
