Master and PhD Positions in Geoinformatics and Climate Change

The Geography Department and Coastal and Marine Resources Centre of University College Cork, Ireland, have two funded research studentships available to commence in October.

The studentship covers university fees at the EU level, and an annual stipend of up to €18,000.

The PhD project aims to address issues of the use of Geoinformatics technologies for predicting the effects of climate change with respect to those coastal areas that are most at risk.

The MSc project will explore the utility of high spatial resolution, multispectral optical and SAR satellite data to map the habitat distribution and vertical expansion/contraction and stability of raised bogs.

Applicants should have a minimum of a;

  • 2:1 Honours degree or equivalent in an Earth, Environmental or Engineering Science discipline.
  • Experience in remote sensing, image processing, quantitative environmental science and in undertaking fieldwork would be an advantage.

    Applicants should send a copy of their CV, with the names and addresses of 3 referees, plus a brief statement outlining their academic interests and their reasons for wishing to undertake this research project to the email addresses above.
