Position Announcement: Postdoc Position in Land Observation and Modeling at Cornell University
Position: The School of Integrative Plant Science at Cornell University is seeking a highly motivated postdoc to conduct interdisciplinary studies in land surface processes. The position is located in the Section of Soil and Crop Science. The successful applicant is expected
to apply advanced observational, modeling and geospatial approaches to integrate eco- physiological, biophysical, biogeochemical and hydrological processes to understand and forecast complex land surface dynamics at different spatial and temporal scales in the context of climate change. A special focus of this position is on ground-based measurements of solar- induced fluorescence. Other responsibilities of this position include developing and
applying regional/global land surface models (e.g., NCAR's CESM), analyzing remote sensing data (e.g., Chlorophyll Fluorescence, Lidar, Thermal), conducting field studies at Cornell research farms, and presenting original scientific results at meetings and in publications.
The position is anticipated to start in February 2017 and the search will continue until the position is filled. Salary is competitive and commensurate with background and experience. Benefits package is included.
Qualification: Requirements include a PhD in an ecology-, agriculture-, climate-, remote sensing-, or computation-related field, skills in big-data analysis, data mining, statistics, and programing experience in Fortran, C, Matlab, NCL, R or Python. Preferences
include expertise in field sensors and data acquisition, remote sensing, and CESM/CLM.
Application: Candidates are encouraged to send curriculum vitae, statement of research interest, and contact information for three references to Dr. Ying Sun (firstname.lastname@example.org or Ying.Sun@jpl.nasa.gov).
