Applications are invited for a fixed term postdoctoral research position to work as part of a multidisciplinary team in support of research funded by the EU under project grant "Swarmonitor".

The successful candidate will undertake fundamental research into the automated monitoring of honey bee hives, with the long term aim of developing a commercially available product.

The role will involve working in close collaboration with, including spending time at, the French research institution INRA in Avignon. In addition, you will be required to organise regular meetings of the consortium partners which include three additional European SME's and three European beekeeping Associations.

The successful candidate will be expected to develop algorithms in MATLAB code for the analysis of vibration spectra from honey bee hives. You should also have good knowledge of intellectual property protection and techniques for computer interfacing. Experience in principal component analysis, discriminant function analysis and programming in C++ would also be an advantage. A PhD in Physics, Computing, Electronics or other closely related discipline is required.
