Are you an ambitious researcher with skills in machine learning, and looking for your next challenge? Do you want to further you career in one of the UK’s leading research intensive Universities?
We are seeking a Post-doctoral Research Fellow to join the European research project DEEPVOLC: Forecasting Volcanic Activity Using Deep Learning. We are looking for an enthusiastic, highly numerate scientist who will develop deep learning approaches to detect, classify and forecast surface deformation at volcanoes, based on InSAR data from radar satellites. There will be potential to develop research beyond this goal, depending on specific research outcomes or interests.
You will work alongside other researchers in the DEEPVOLC team, which aims to use data on how volcanoes behave globally to automatically identify, and forecast, deformation at volcanoes locally.
You will have a PhD in computer science, geophysics, engineering, mathematics or a related discipline, good communication skills, and the ability to work as part of a team.
You will participate in all project meetings and be expected to actively contribute to outreach and training activities as required. You will be expected to publish research papers and to present your research at national and international meetings.
