Applications are invited for the post of Lecturer/Senior Lecturer (depending on experience and qualifications) in Geospatial Information Science (GIS) to join our cross-cutting research theme and to contribute to the School of Geographical and Earth Sciences (GES) research-led teaching in Geospatial Data Science.
Applications are welcome in any one or more research areas in Geospatial Information Science that complement existing research expertise and projects within the School, and the College of Science and Engineering. These include but are not limited to Geospatial Information Science (GIS), geomatics, surveying, positioning and navigation, mapping, geospatial data visualisation and cartography, virtual and augmented reality, geostatistics and geocomputation, and geospatial data science.
The post-holder will develop, lead and sustain research of international standard; contribute to teaching, assessment, project supervision and curriculum design, in particular, at postgraduate level; and participate in School management and organisation.
The School has a growing team and a strategy to expand its research and teaching in the area of geospatial data science and computational geoscience. We are seeking discipline-bridging applicants who develop, modify, customise, and apply new, cutting edge emerging data-driven approaches for the analysis, understanding, and visualisation of complex geospatial and social information.
The successful applicant will work with the Geospatial Data Science team within the School of Geographical and Earth Sciences and will closely collaborate with the Earth Systems Research Group (ESRG) and the Human Geography Research Group (HGRG) within GES and actively seek and develop relevant research links and collaboration across the College of Science and Engineering.
Please note that the above position requires a Scottish Credit and Qualification Framework level 12 (awarded PhD) or equivalent in geomatics, geography, geospatial information science, computer science, applied statistics or closely related discipline, or equivalent as evidenced by relevant teaching experience.
