The Institute for Geoinformatics, University of Münster, invites 
applications for the full-time position of a

Research Associate (Akad. Rätin/Rat auf Zeit) (Bes.Gr. A 13 LBesO)

The position will be filled as of October 1st, 2017. It is available 
initially for three years and can be extended for another three years 
contingent upon good progress. Current working hours are 41 hours per 
week. Teaching duties amount to 4 hours per week during the semester. 
The ability to teach in German is beneficial but not required.

The position will be based within the Spatiotemporal modelling lab of 
the institute. The major research themes of the group as connected to 
the open position cover spatial statistics, analysis of remote sensing 
data, integrating different spatial data sources, conceptual modelling 
and theories of spatiotemporal data, analysing movement data, 
reproducible research and open source software development.

The ideal candidate will have an established publication record in 
geoinformatics, geographic information science, spatial statistics, or 
environmental informatics. Experience with programming in R, C/C++, 
and/or JavaScript are assumed, and active participation in and 
contribution to open source communities are expected. Documented 
familiarity with reproducible research is desired. The applicant will be 
expected to contribute to the existing research topics of the 
Spatiotemporal modelling lab, to further develop an own research 
profile, and to raise external research funding. The applicant will also 
be expected to actively contribute to the supervision of students and 
the hosting of guests in the lab.

The successful candidate must have a Diplom/M.Sc. in Geoinformatics, 
Earth Sciences, Computer Science or Mathematics and a research oriented 
Ph.D. in geoinformatics or a closely related discipline.

The University of Münster is an equal opportunity employer and is 
committed to increasing the proportion of women in academics. 
Consequently, we actively encourage applications by women. Female 
candidates with equivalent qualifications and academic achievements will 
be preferentially considered within the framework of the legal 
possibilities. We also welcome applications from candidates with severe 
disabilities. Disabled candidates with equivalent qualifications will be 
preferentially considered.

For further information please contact Prof. Dr. Edzer Pebesma 
(edzer.pebesma at uni-muenster.de).

Applications should be sent electronically and compiled into a single 
pdf. They should include CV, publication list, copies of university 
degrees, a brief statement of past and future research interests, and 
the names and contact information of three references, who are willing 
to provide support letters.

Applications must be received by July 16, 2017 (subject 15/17). 
Interviews will take place between July 24 to 27, 2017.
