Postdoctoral research fellow in Data Science & Geomagnetic Bird Navigation at the University of St Andrews


I’m looking for a postdoctoral research fellow to work the project on “Uncovering the Mechanisms of Migratory Bird Navigation with Big Data Analytics”, funded by Leverhulme Trust. The post-holder will undertake data science research and is expected to develop new data fusion methods for open geomagnetic and bird tracking data. The post holder will work in an interdisciplinary and international team, consisting of data scientists at the University of St Andrews and ecologists at the Max Planck Institute for Ornithology (MPIO) in Germany.

Applicants should hold a PhD in geographic information science, remote sensing or a related spatial data science discipline and have an interest in movement ecology.

The post is for 14 months and is to start on 3 January 2019 or as soon as possible thereafter.

Application DL: 1 October 2018
