With apologies for cross-posting to several relevant lists:

You will join the Geomatics team and carry out research in GNSS positioning, including the utilisation of GNSS observations for the precise determination of horizontal and vertical motions of the Earth's crust and natural features such as glaciers, or built structures on the Earth. You will disseminate your work via leading international journal publications and conferences.

You should also have expertise in scientific programming and computing under the Linux (UNIX) operating system, and the use of one or more programming languages. You will also be expected to have experience in one or more of the major scientific GNSS processing software packages. Experience of collaboration with industrial or multi-disciplinary partners would also be an advantage.

This is a fixed-term position for three years (in the first instance).
