Growth in food production is not matching growth in global population – the world needs new ways of producing more food to meet this massive demand. More efficient and intensive production systems are needed, but so too is a decrease in the environmental impact of such systems. This challenge presents a huge opportunity for Ireland to position itself as a global leader in ‘data-driven’ agriculture, while also delivering a highly competitive and sustainable agri-food industry.
UCD together with Origin Enterprises Plc have established a research programme, CONSUS, focussed on the application of precision agriculture to crop production with a particular emphasis on optimisation of agri-food production systems leading to more efficient food production with lower environmental impacts. CONSUS is a collaborative programme including the Schools of Computer Science, Agriculture & Food Science, Biology & Environmental Science, Biosystems & Food Engineering and Industry Partner, Origin Enterprises.
Applications are now invited for the position of Software Engineer.
The software engineer will contribute to the development of a Visualization framework that will take the research conducted on different visualization technologies within the CONSUS programme into a cohesive framework. They will be part of UCD’s Virtual Reality lab and work with the cutting edge of Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality technologies. Their primary responsibility is to bridge the divide between the innovate research that is being conduct within the VR lab for CONSUS and the creation of a mature software framework that can be leveraged for commercial use.
The successful candidate will have the opportunity to work in a dynamic research environment and will actively contribute to exciting and cutting edge multi-disciplinary research.
Competition closes: 7th January 2022
