Interdisciplinary Geospatial Informatics Post Doc position at MADALGO

Via Lars Arge, information about an interesting post doc opportunity at MADALGO:

An interdisciplinary Post Doc position is available at Aarhus
University, Denmark, starting August 2010 or later. The responsibilities
of the Post Doc will include work on geospatial problems on the boundary
between computer science and biology, more specifically between
algorithms and ecology/biodiversity. Modest teaching responsibilities
may also be required. The Post Doc will be affiliated with the Danish
National Research Foundation Center MADALGO (Center for Massive Data
Algorithmics – www.madalgo.au.dk) under the supervision of computer
science Professor Lars Arge (person.au.dk/en/large@cs), but will also
work extensively with researchers in the Ecoinfomatics & Biodiversity
group at the Department of Biological Sciences under the supervision of
Professor Jens-Christian Svenning (person.au.dk/en/svenning@biology).

The Post Doc should focus on problems in relation to computationally
efficient use of modern detailed (and thus massive) topographic data in
various global-change-relevant modeling applications. These problems
include the computation of fine-resolution topography-derived variables
on a global scale, as well as local- and global-scale flooding scenario
modeling and impact assessment.

Applications are welcomed from computer science researchers with clearly
demonstrated skills in the design, analysis and implementation of
algorithms (preferably also with I/O-efficient algorithms), as well as
from geoinformatics or biology researchers with clearly demonstrated
skills in ecoinformatics, GIS, and programming. Researchers with
interdisciplinary research experience will be preferred. Applicants
should apply by uploading a letter of interest and a CV, as well as
indicate at least two names of references for recommendations, using the
application form available at www.madalgo.au.dk. To be assured of full
consideration, applications must arrive by May 17, 2010. Applications
will be considered until the position is filled.

For further information contact Professor Lars Arge at
large@madalgo.au.dk or Professor Jens-Christian Svenning at
svenning@biology.au.dk.
