Dear Members,

The Faculty of Geosciences and the Environment (FGSE) of the University of Lausanne invites applications for a professorship in geo-environmental data science, to be based in the Institute of Earth Surface Dynamics (IDYST).
We are looking for a scientist at the intersection of data science and geo-environmental science who complements current strengths of the FGSE. As far as data science, we seek someone able to develop methods/algorithms (such as machine learning, geostatistics, geocomputing, geomodelling, etc.) and tailor them to particular large spatial/temporal datasets or big data.  As far as geo-environmental science, the person is expected to analyse and predict the dynamics of the earth surface-environmental system (such as hydrology, geomorphology, vegetation distribution, climate, environmental data time series, soils, etc.).  The appointed person will teach GIS along with other geo-environmental data science courses.
Starting date: August 1st, 2021 (or to be agreed upon)
Contract length: 2 years renewable twice (6 years). Tenure and promotion to the rank of Associate Professor expected after 5-6 years, leading to further contracts renewable every 6 years.
Activity rate: 100 %
Workplace: Lausanne campus (Géopolis building)
