Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Remote Sensing
Within the College of Sciences and Engineering, School of Technology, Environments and Design (STED), the TerraLuma Project aims to develop tools and algorithms for environmental remote sensing applications with unmanned aircraft systems (UAS, also known as drones).
The Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Remote sensing plays a key role within the TerraLuma Research Group, responsible for undertaking high quality research within the Australian Research Council (ARC) Discovery Project 'Ultrahigh-resolution and remote sensing for assessing biodiversity hotspots'. This role will focus on the analysis of hyperspectral UAS data for mapping of functional plant traits, developing advanced techniques for interpreting data from ultrahigh-resolution remote sensing in Australian forested ecosystems. In addition, the Postdoctoral Research Fellow will have a unique opportunity to contribute to an ARC Linkage project "Advancing remote sensing with a world-first High Altitude Pseudo Satellite (HAPS)". This project aims to develop and test a high-performance hyperspectral imaging instrument for a solar-powered, long-endurance, stratospheric UAS platform. This platform is intended to be used for multi-week missions. Hyperspectral imaging capabilities on such a platform would fill a gap in current airborne and spaceborne earth observation capabilities. We are looking for applicants who have demonstrated experience and a good research track record in hyperspectral remote sensing of vegetation.
To be successful in the role, your application will need to demonstrate;
This position is being offered at either Level A, or Level B based on qualifications, skills and experience, and will have a total remuneration package of up to $133,842 comprising base salary within the range of $71,443 to $114,395 plus 17% superannuation.
