NGI is based in the Nottingham Geospatial Building (NGB) within the University Nottingham Innovation Park (UNIP) on the University of Nottingham's Jubilee Campus.
Job Opportunities at NGI / GRACE
Current job opportunities in the Nottingham Geospatial Institute (NGI) are listed on this page. The institute's research activities over the next five years will focus on the following themes:
- Engineering surveying and remote measurement - these well-established areas of research activity are focussed around improving the potential of technology and its application, including: algorithm development; creating novel methodologies and optimising system performance, particularly with (low and high cost) integrated sensors, to solve scientific, environmental and engineering challenges.
- Geospatial science - geospatial data, information systems, infrastructures and semantics, including open or crowd-sourced data and software.
- Positioning and navigation technologies - supporting technologies and advanced algorithms, integration of sensors and multi-GNSS constellations with signals of opportunity, to enable ubiquitous positioning from low-cost to ultra-high precision positioning and navigation solutions, and the wider exploration of bioscience, engineering and environmental applications.
- Propagation effects on GNSS - external effects on the propagation of GNSS satellite signals to reach receivers on or near Earth, including station local environment and the atmosphere.
In addition a number of cross-cutting applications focussed themes:
- Disaster response and mitigation
- Environmental monitoring
- Global food security
- Integrated transport
GRACE focusses on assisting organisations, businesses, start-ups and entrepreneurs to take advantage of the applications of geospatial technology including satellite navigation.
