Post-doctoral research fellowship at the UMR AMAP

Post-doctoral research fellowship in data analysis and computation science: lidar 3D point cloud modelling for forestry application

A two-year Post-Doctoral Research Fellowship in data analysis and computation science is open at AMAP (Montpellier). The position is proposed as part of the CartoDiv-DendroLidar project, which aims to improve the management and exploitation of tropical forests in a context of hyper-diverse tropical forest where difficulties of inventory and forest penetration profoundly limit the knowledge of forests. The second objective of the project is to develop tools for the remote sensing of timber resources using aerial Lidar coupled with very high resolution photos (THR) to improve crop forecasts by quality and to optimize the planning of the areas to be exploited according to the demand.

Interested candidates should send their curriculum vitae with a publication list and a statement of research interest to Grégoire Vincent (gregoire.vincent@ird.fr) before the 1st of May 2018. The targeted starting date is the 1st of June 2018.

For more information on the fellowship, kindly see the announcement.
