UNIVERSITY COLLEGE LONDON
DEPARTMENT OF GEOMATIC ENGINEERING

LECTURER IN GEOMATIC ENGINEERING
FURTHER PARTICULARS

Closing date:  ** 24th January 2003 **

(See also http://www.ge.ucl.ac.uk/news/announce/lecturervacancy.html)


Following are details of a new lectureship post available at University
College London. The post is in the Department of Geomatic Engineering.
Applicants with expertise in GIS are certainly welcome. UCL itself has
a strong interdepartmental team working in GIS, including Prof. Paul
Longley, Prof. Mike Batty (Geography and CASA, the Centre for Advanced
Spatial Analysis), Dr. Muki Haklay, Jeremy Morley (Dept. Geomatic
Engineering). Within UCL, interests in GIS span a range from data
analysis and management (e.g. LIDAR), through interoperability (OGC
members) to applications and technology such as SDSS, crime science
and urban modelling. Opportunities exist both for purely academic study
and for research with external bodies through our strong GIS business
development unit.




GENERAL

The Department of Geomatic Engineering seeks a committed, dynamic and
self-motivated person to appoint to a newly created lectureship. The
department will consider applications from anyone with suitable
expertise, but expects to appoint someone with a PhD in geomatic
engineering (or a closely related field) who is able to contribute
significantly to the delivery of its new undergraduate programme that
will begin in October 2003. Additionally the new lecturer will be
expected to carry out masters-level teaching, internationally
competitive research and a number of the usual general administrative
duties that need to be shared amongst academic staff in a university
department.


GEOMATIC ENGINEERING

The Department of Geomatic Engineering (http://www.ge.ucl.ac.uk/) at UCL
was formerly known as the Department of Photogrammetry and Surveying and
is one of six departments in the Faculty of Engineering. It was formed
in 1961. Prior to that time, a strong interest in surveying had existed
within the Department of Civil and Municipal Engineering and the United
Kingdom's first established Chair of Photogrammetry and Surveying was
founded in the College in 1947. Formal graduate degree programmes and
research in surveying and in photogrammetry flourished from that date.
In October 1997 to reflect the shift of the department's interests
towards the newer technologies such as the Global Positioning System
(GPS), Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Remote Sensing, the
Department was renamed the Department of Geomatic Engineering. The
department currently has eight academic staff, eight externally funded
research fellows, six support staff and about sixty students (MSc and PhD).

The work of the department has traditionally been primarily postgraduate
in nature: the main activities being the conducting of research and the
running of taught postgraduate diploma/MSc courses. At the moment the
department offers, or plays a significant part in the delivery of, five
such courses.

7 Geographic Information Systems
7 Surveying
7 Hydrographic Surveying
7 Photogrammetry with Remote Sensing
7 Remote Sensing

Some service teaching, largely undergraduate, and mainly for the
Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, is also carried out.
The research interests of the department can be broadly categorised
under the following headings.

o Remote sensing for global monitoring and mapping
o Industrial metrology and close range photogrammetry
o GPS, geodesy and navigation
o Photogrammetry, cartography and digital mapping
o Geographical Information Science

Further details of the department's research activity can be found in
http://www.ge.ucl.ac.uk/research/index.html.

In October 2003 a new undergraduate programme, with the title BEng/MEng
in GeoSpatial and Environmental Information Management will be launched,
see http://www.ge.ucl.ac.uk/courses/BEngMEng/prospectus2003.html. The
launch of this programme is expected to lead to a significant expansion
of the department over the next four years, this advertisement relating
to the first of four new academic and three new support posts.


UNIVERSITY COLLEGE LONDON

University College London (UCL) is the oldest and largest of the various
Colleges and Institutes that make up the University of London. Situated
in the Bloomsbury area of London, UCL has over 11,000 undergraduate and
over 6,000 postgraduate students with more than 3,600 academic staff in
72 departments - all dedicated to research and teaching of the highest
standards.

The campus is close to a range of facilities, including the British
Museum and the British Library, and has excellent access to the London
Underground and British Rail networks.

For a detailed profile of teaching and research at UCL, and its history
and facilities see http://www.ucl.ac.uk/profile/index.html.
