Department of Geosciences and Natural Resource Management
Faculty of Science, University of Copenhagen

The Department of Geosciences and Natural Resource Management invites applications for a tenure-track assistant professor position in remote sensing of terrestrial ecosystems and climate. The position is open from 1 February 2020 or as soon as possible thereafter.

The tenure-track assistant professor will be responsible for conducting research and teaching in the field of Remote sensing related to ecosystem dynamics and interactions with climate and following land use. As a successful applicant, you are expected to have a background in the use of near-field/aerial/satellite remote sensing for analysis of ecosystem processes and climate dynamics, and to have research experience covering one or more of the following aspects:

  • Assessment of spatial and temporal variability in ecosystems and/or climate
  • Assessment of interactions between climate and ecosystems, in particular in Arctic environments
  • State-of-the-art methodology in near-field/aerial remote sensing using UAV and/or satellite data
  • Combined use of remote sensing, in situ measurements, and modelling for validation and upscaling – potentially involving Artificial Intelligence and Machine learning.
The tenure track assistant professor is expected to develop own field work campaigns and participate in field work in the Arctic and elsewhere. The candidate is expected to engage in collaborations on remote sensing across the Department of Geosciences and Natural Resource Management.

As tenure-track assistant professor, you are expected to have a clear research profile with forward-looking visions and plans for the development of your research towards future impact. You should preferably have documented experience in organizing and conducting teaching and experience with supervision of students and have completed an introduction to university pedagogy. You must have experience with managing research funds and be able to put your research and teaching into a societal perspective.

Once employed, we expect that you will carry out your own research with high creativity and innovative approaches and will strive to publish your work with focus on quality and impact as well as through popular science channels. You will participate in teaching of courses at BSc and MSc level, and you will develop your skills as co-supervisor for PhD students. You will be expected to develop your own as well as collaborative research applications, and be committed to project management and interdisciplinary collaboration. You will build an international scientific network, develop collaboration with stakeholders and collaborate closely with colleagues at the department and contribute to collegial development of the department including participation in scientific and social events.

Your work place will be at the Department of Geosciences and Natural Resource Management (IGN) which conducts research and education on the past, present and future physical, chemical and biological environments of the Earth and their interactions with societal and human systems to provide graduates and research in support of sustainable future solutions for society.

The position is primarily embedded in the Section for Geography and the research group “Terrestrial Ecosystem Analysis. Processes and interplay between climate, soil and water”. The Section for Geography is a vibrant research and educational environment that spans a wide range of geographical sub-disciplines within human and physical geography. The Section is part of the Department of Geosciences and Natural Resource Management and collaborates broadly within and beyond the department. Further information on the Department can be found at Inquiries about the position can be made to Head of Department Claus Beier, tel. (+45) 93565244, cbe (at)
