The Department for Biology at Aarhus University, Denmark, invites applications for one or two geospatial and/or remote sensing research support scientists (AC/TAP) to support the research and teaching at the Section for Ecoinformatics & Biodiversity. One of the positions is a permanent full-time position, and the other is a 3-year full-time position. The positions are to be filled by 15th of September 2022 or as soon as possible thereafter.


The positions


We seek to build a team of research support scientists with complementary skills that enthusiastically work together in supporting and contributing to the research conducted primarily in the Section for Ecoinformatics & Biodiversity.  The person appointed will work in a dynamic and international research environment focused on understanding changes in biodiversity across ecosystems.
The main responsibilities and tasks of our team of research support scientists include:

  1. Supporting, maintaining, and purchasing personal computers and the IT- and computational infrastructure, as well as geospatial research equipment (GNSS/GPS units etc.)
  2. Support BSc, MSc, and PhD students and assist in teaching Geographical Information Systems (GIS), basic statistics andr geospatial data analysis.
  3. Retrieving, processing, and organising relevant geospatial data as well as building and maintaining data-bases allowing efficient extraction, analysis, and sharing of research data (according to the FAIR principles)
  4. Retrieving, pre-processing and analysing satellite- and drone-based remote sensing data sets on local and remote platforms,
  5. Developing procedures and workflows for efficient data analysis (statistically and machine/deep learning) and assuring reproducibility of these analyses
The department emphasizes a good relationship between colleagues and students. It is therefore important that you have a positive and open personality, get excited by, and engage in emerging challenges and opportunities, and are ready to give your colleagues a helping hand when needed.


Qualifications


We are looking for someone with a PhD in biology or geography with a strong research background and at least 2 yrs post-PhD work experience in geospatial or remote sensing data analysis - or alternatively extensive experience (> 5 yrs) in research support within these fields. We expect you to plan and perform your tasks independently and initiate frequent feedback and communication with the section’s researchers. In addition, we expect you to have abilities to share and transfer knowledge as well as contribute with high-level research support in handling and analysis of large geospatial data. The positions require that you perform maintenance on our IT infrastructure, can communicate with and support students and scientists at all levels, as well as navigate and prioritize in a high-performance research environment among a large group of culturally diverse colleagues and students. It is a prerequisite that you are good at communicating in English.
We are looking for candidates that complement the existing research support team at the section with the following qualifications:
  • Strong and proven capabilities in handling and analysing geospatial and/or remote sensing data, including version control (e.g. git)
  • In-depth knowledge of one or several programming languages: (R is a must, other relevant languages include e.g., Python, SQL. Interviewing for the position will involve a programming challenge)
  • Knowledge of acquiring, downloading, handling, synthesising and remote processing of data from various data sources and platforms (e.g., Google Earth Engine, ENVI, ERDAS, Lastools/Opals)

The above qualifications in combination with one or several of the below qualifications is an advantage:
  • Excellent knowledge in several of the following: basic to advanced statistical analyses and modelling, machine learning including deep learning, data wrangling, visualization & communication.
  • Proven capabilities in using, testing, maintaining, and updating computational and data server infrastructures (including windows- & unix-systems and cloud computing)
  • Knowledge of data management plans and preferably also metadata systems.
  • Experience with teaching geospatial analyses including GIS
  • Good collaboration and communications skills across different groups of employees


The Department of Biology

The Department of Biology provides a framework for research and teaching in all major biological subdisciplines. The department is especially known for its research contribution in biodiversity, global change and conservation biology, aquatic biology and ecology, arctic environment and ecosystems, genetics and evolution, microbiology and zoophysiology. The Department currently employs approximately 140 academic and technical staff and 40 PhD students. The Department hosts BSc and MSc study programs in Biology with about 400 students enrolled as well as a PhD program. The Department offer a vibrant and informal research environment with a long-standing tradition for collaboration with international university partners in the absolute elite.  The working language is English, and we welcome applications from men and women of all backgrounds. The campus of Aarhus University is located in a beautiful park close to the city centre (population 300.000). Life quality and time allocation to family life in Denmark is high, and international investigations usually report that no other nationality score higher in terms of life satisfaction.
