The Faculty of Geosciences and the Environment (FGSE) of the University of Lausanne invites applications for a professorship in geo-environmental data science, to be based in the Institute of Earth Surface Dynamics (IDYST).
FGSE is are looking for a scientist at the intersection of data science and geo-environmental science who complements its current strengths. As far as data science, they seek someone able to develop methods/algorithms (such as machine learning, geostatistics, geocomputing, geomodelling, etc.) and tailor them to particular large spatial/temporal datasets or big data. As far as geo-environmental science, the person is expected to analyse and predict the dynamics of the earth surface-environmental system (such as hydrology, geomorphology, vegetation distribution, climate, environmental data time series, soils, etc.). The appointed person will teach GIS along with other geo-environmental data science courses.
