Each year the Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs for Northern Ireland (DAERA) offers a limited number of Postgraduate Studentships for a three year period of research leading to a PhD qualification at a University in the United Kingdom (UK) or Republic of Ireland (ROI).

The 2017 Competition for Studentship Applications is now open. Funding is provided for full-time students only.

One of the priority Themes this year is

• Research to consider the potential for use of remote sensing technologies in agricultural schemes.

Interestingly the application is student lead. The student identifies a research topic, an institution/supervisor and then make the application (in reality any potential supervisor will give assistance in the application)

Here are more details:


Any potential students with a good idea, you can contact me and maybe progress

GUIDOS workshop

The Centre for Environmental Research Innovation and Sustainability, IT Sligo are pleased to announce details of a Guidos Toolbox Workshop to be held on 23rd and 24th November.  
Guidos Toolbox (Graphical User Interface for the Description of image Objects and their Shapes) is a free software developed by the Joint Research Centre that contains a wide variety of generic raster image processing routines, including related free software such as GDAL (to process geospatial data and to export them as raster image overlays in Google Earth), and FWTools (pre/post-process and visualize any raster or vector data).
This software has a wide range of applications including landscape ecology, forestry and much more. See http://forest.jrc.ec.europa.eu/download/software/guidos/
The software developer Peter Vogt will give the 2-day workshop.There are only 25 places available. The €70 fee includes lunch and tea/coffee on both days.
