We have a vacancy for a three-year Biodiversity Institute James Martin
Research Fellow to work as part of a team developing a system to
undertake biodiversity monitoring using smartphone technologies.
Specifically this project aims to integrate smartphone technologies
with developments in bioacoustics, information engineering and
citizen-science to create a prototype system to collect and recognise
biodiversity sound data for UK birds.

The successful applicant will have a PhD in highly numerate discipline
with application to biological sciences (e.g. computational modelling
of biological phenomena); experience of research at the interface
between physical and biological sciences; experience of data
collection, compilation and analysis; proven skills in writing and
publishing papers in leading scientific journals; demonstrated ability
to work independently and excellent organisational and communication
skills. An interest in bird identification and familiarity with cloud
and mobile networks is also desirable.

Please contact Prof. Stephen Roberts (sjrob@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx) for more details.
