Based in the Faculty of Science and Engineering, the School of Biological and Marine Sciences is primed to enable students to achieve their ambitions by linking research to real world problems. Students are equipped with the skills they need to make a positive impact on the sustainability of our environment and society. Our programmes are grouped into three subject areas: inspiring change for a more sustainable future with biological sciences; protecting the diversity of marine life on our planet with marine biology; and exploring, understanding and protecting our ocean systems with marine science. With many amazing ecosystems right on our doorstep, Plymouth boasts one of the highest concentrations of world-leading marine scientists in Europe and benefits from world-class research facilities such as the Marine Station and LABplus.
The Marine Sciences team within the School of Biological & Marine Sciences at the University of Plymouth is seeking to appoint a new Lecturer with expertise in marine remote sensing. Applications which demonstrate high competence in either development of remote sensing methods or in the application of remote sensing to the marine environment are welcomed but you will be expected to lecture on, and advise students and colleagues, on the latter. You will be a highly motivated and dynamic academic who will be expected to become a productive member of the Marine Physics Research Group (MPRG), the Marine Conservation Research Group, or the Coastal Processes Research Group (CPRG), all of which have strong international recognition and are key contributors to the marine portfolio in a university with a top 5 global ranking in marine science impact.
The appointment will complement and build on our existing research and teaching strengths, please visit: https://www.plymouth.ac.uk/schools/school-of-biological-and-marine-sciences. Our Marine Science team has internationally recognised expertise in field and numerical studies of coastal processes, studies of fundamental physical processes in marine systems, understanding the role of dynamic processes in the marine ecosystem and assessing human impacts in that environment, and a growing expertise in marine autonomous systems. The team is embedded in the School of Biological and Marine Sciences with a wide range of research expertise and degree programme delivery.
This role is closely aligned to our BSc programmes in Oceanography and Coastal Processes, Ocean Science and Marine Conservation, and Ocean Exploration and Surveying, and the postgraduate programmes, MSc Applied Marine Science, MSc Marine Conservation, and MSc Hydrography, and you will have the opportunity to contribute to teaching across the Marine Sciences Subject Group https://www.plymouth.ac.uk/schools/school-of-biological-and-marine-sciences/marine-science
