Job: Research Assistant with Python & Remote Sensing/Image Processing experience

This isn’t normal content for my blog, but I thought a post here might reach people who would be interested in the job. Don’t worry, normal service will be resumed shortly – this isn’t going to turn into a job listing site!

A research assistant is required to assist with the development of an algorithm to monitor air quality at high-resolution from satellite images. Your day-to-day work will involve investigating extensions to the algorithm, implementing these extensions in Python code, and automating the processing and validation of large volumes of satellite imagery. You should have good scientific Python programming skills (including experience with libraries such as numpy, scipy and pandas), along with experience with one or more of remote sensing, image processing, computer vision and GIS.

You will be collaborating closely with the original developer of the algorithm, who is based at the University of Southampton and working closely with the Flowminder Foundation. The work is currently fixed-term for 2-5 months full-time on a contract basis, with pay equivalent to a salary of around £30,000pa. There is potential for contract extension and/or further work with the Flowminder Foundation. Part-time, remote or flexible working may be possible, and this role may suit a recent MSc or PhD graduate.
