Statistical Modeller Programmer

Massey University through its newly formed Massey Agritech Partnership is looking to fill two new research and development positions. These will be in the following areas.  GIS Analyst/ Developer, and Statistical Modeller Programmer.
The requirement is to work in the area of hyperspectral imagery. The unit operates an aircraft mounted Fenix VIS/NIR/SWIR pushbroom sensor from Specim used to generate hyperspectral information. Further laboratory based VIS/NIR/SWIR imaging equipment is also utilised. Experience, knowledge and a level of proficiency in the following would be expected; R, Python, MySQL, ENVI, ArcGIS and ArcPro. Further computing languages, statistical packages and methodologies would also be an advantage.
One vacancy will be concentrated on developing automated workflows for handling hyperspectral imagery.  The second is to provide greater support around statistical analysis and modelling of hyperspectral data. Both positions are contracted for a two year period.
The positions will be posted on Massey University’s web site within the next 10 days. Those interested could also contact Prof. Ian Yule, i.j.yule@massey.ac.nz aas a first step.
