2 Years, Fixed-Term, Whole-Time Post
Dr Marguerite Nyhan would like to invite applications for a fully funded Postdoctoral research position with the “Environmental Intelligence” research project which is funded by Science Foundation Ireland. The project focuses on advancing the science and technology underpinning sustainable, healthy and liveable cities of the future. This frontier research project will employ sensing technologies, largescale Information Communications Technologies (ICT) datasets, artificial intelligence, machine learning and statistical methods to quantify urban environmental metrics (e.g. air pollution and greenspace) and urban dynamics in unprecedented accuracy and scale in a number of case study cities. The project will then investigate human-environment interactions and analyse associations between urban environmental exposures and health impacts to inform urban design and environmental health policies. Dr Marguerite Nyhan who is Principal Investigator on “Environmental Intelligence” is an Associate Professor/Senior Lecturer in Sustainable Futures & Environmental Engineering in the School of Engineering & Architecture at University College Cork (UCC).
• A PhD in environmental engineering, electrical engineering, computer science, data science or similar.
• Highly motivated, detail orientated and committed with a keen interest in creative and multidisciplinary research
• Significant experience in data analytics, statistics and/or urban analytics
• Experience in environmental sustainability and environmental health is advantageous but not essential
• Experience in sensor hardware development and/or smartphone application development is advantageous but not essential
• Excellent communication, organisation and interpersonal skills
• A record of peer-reviewed journal publications
The Future Sustainability Research Group
The Future Sustainability Research Group investigates and develops intelligent solutions for sustainable, net zero, healthy, liveable and equitable cities of the future. Led by Dr Marguerite Nyhan, the group employs state-of-the-art technologies and methodologies from a number of disciplines including engineering, computer science, urban planning, public health and sociology to achieve its vision. The Future Sustainability Research Group sits within the School of Engineering & Architecture and the Environmental Research Institute at UCC.
As the challenges of urbanisation, environmental degradation and climate change are complex and multi-faceted, the Future Sustainability Research Group recognises that pathways towards a sustainable future will only be achieved by successfully harnessing emerging technologies including data analytics and artificial intelligence; by embracing complexity; by fostering a systems thinking approach and by engaging with people, policymakers and government. Its research falls under the themes of ‘Intelligent & Technology-Driven Solutions for Sustainable Future Cities’ and ‘Technology, Policy & Society’. See www.nyhanlab.org for more details.
