UCD Post-doctoral Research Fellow Level 1 

Position Summary

University College Dublin has secured funding under the Department of Enterprise Trade and Employment’s (DETE) Disruptive Technology Innovation Fund (DTIF) to establish a new Earth Observation platform designed for non- specialist users. The CAMEO (Creating an Architecture for Manipulating Earth Observation data) project seeks to democratise access to an ever-increasing volume of Earth Observation data to develop a sustainable internationally trading Earth Observation services sector in Ireland.

CAMEO will provide a new means of accessing international EO/UAV/Land-based sensor data and mechanisms for combining this with national climate, agriculture, and marine databases to unlock real, tangible potential for Irish industry, the public sector, researchers. CAMEO will establish Ireland as an international leader in using EO data for economic and societal benefit.

The members of this project consortium, led by UCD, include Vertice Integration Services Ltd T/A Vertice Cloud, BCC Risk Advisory Ltd T/A Edgescan, The Icon Group Ltd, Treemetrics Ltd, TechWorks Marine Ltd and Dell Technologies.

This is a research-focused role, where you will conduct a specified programme of research supported by research training and development under the supervision and direction of a Principal Investigator.

The primary purpose of the role is to further develop your research skills and competencies, including the processes of publication in peer-reviewed academic publications, the development of funding proposals, the mentorship of graduate students along with the opportunity to develop your skills in research-led teaching.

EO data embraces a myriad of potential data sources and streams, including but not limited to satellite, drone, lidar, ground segment, and citizen derived. The CAMEO EO platform will make provision for such diverse and rich datasets through functionality for storage and access; cataloguing and searching; data processing and analysis; visualisation; secure authentication, and authorisation through the construction of a suite of microservices adopting the emerging de facto industry standard of Microservices Architecture (MSA). In addition, this role will contribute to the design and development of the microservices and accompanying CAMEO user interfaces.

In addition to the Principal Duties and Responsibilities listed below, the successful candidate will also carry out the following duties specific to this project:

  • Liaising with stakeholders to define suitable use case demonstrators of EO data

  • Contributing to the design and delivery of the CAMEO EO software system

  • Contributing to designing and implementing a catalogue of microservices and algorithms for EO data

    access, processing, visualisation, etc.

  • Contributing to the design and implementation of a CAMEO User Interface that supports NLP processing

    for intuitive search.
