We are hiring two postdocs to join Cambium Research Group (www.cambiumresearch.eu) at Universidad de Valladolid (Campus de Soria) to work within the OUTBREAK project (funded by Junta de Castilla y León and UE-FEDER).
We aim to develop a remote sensing-based tool to reconstruct, since 2003, the damage extension of pine processionary moth infestations in Castilla y León. We want to generate vulnerability maps considering forest structure and composition, climate and historical incidence. The postdocs will be involved in remote sensing-based data processing and analysis to identify the incidence of processionary outbreaks.
We seek a first postdoc (profile 1) with experience at the obtention and manipulation of large databases of satellite time series (e.g. MODIS, Landsat), as well as LiDAR information.
We seek a second postdoc (profile 2) with experience in the development of AI algorithms for automatic detection and monitoring of events from remote sensing data.
Cambium Research Group is a dynamic and highly productive group that includes forest engineers, biologists and data scientists. Postdocs will work in close collaboration with experts in remote sensing and data science from the technological spin-off föra (www.fora.es) and Cesefor Foundation (www.cesefor.es).
Contracts will start in February 2020 with 24 months duration. Gross annual salary around 30000 €
