Postdoctoral Associate- analysis of remote sensing data

JOB DESCRIPTION The Murray laboratory seeks a highly motivated postdoctoral researcher to work on a federally-funded project related to the dynamics that shape intertidal environments, focusing on salt marsh ecomorphodynamics and responses to changing rates of sea-level rise. This project involves field work and numerical model development as well as remote sensing data collection and analysis. The postdoctoral associate will primarily be in charge of analyzing airborne LIDAR and multispectral data collected for our field area, but will also be involved in integrating field data, remote sensing data, and numerical model development, including working closely with a PhD student and close collaborators on this project.

TERM 1 year

QUALIFICATIONS Applicants should hold a PhD in Earth Sciences, Civil Engineering, or a related field. We seek applicants with a strong interest in coastal marsh dynamics, including physical and ecomorphodynamic processes, and training in remote sensing analysis.

PROJECTED START DATE The position is available immediately. Ideal start date is July 2023.

Candidate must be legally authorized to work in the USA. Visa sponsorship is not available.

Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled.
