Assistant Professor in "Big Data Analytics for Natural Resources"

The Department of Natural Resources (NRS) at ITC/University of Twente in The Netherlands seeks to hire an Assistant Professor with expertise in big data analytics.

The Department of Natural Resources aims to enable society to effectively develop and use geo-information and Earth observation knowledge and technologies for agricultural and environmental sustainability. The activities of the department are expanding to address new opportunities in applying increasing volumes of remotely sensing imagery and ancillary GIS data layers for natural resource management at regional, continental, and global levels. The NRS specialise in using large volumes of image data derived from remote sensing that characterise the physical properties of vegetation and the environment from individual leaves, to landscape/ecosystem, and even global levels. Exploiting and modelling these increasingly large volumes of data to inform end users fills important gaps in our understanding of vegetation condition, biodiversity and environmental monitoring, forest management and food security and contribute to new approaches for upscaling and exploiting these data.

This position will complement and expand existing expertise in the NRS department. The position will be a point of contact with ITC's Centre of Expertise in Big Geodata Science. ITC, and this position, are focused on collaboration to develop high-quality research outputs that demonstrate the societal impact of big data and open science.

Deadline: 1 March 2021
