1. Postdoctoral Scholar in Mapping, Monitoring, and Modeling Forest Ecosystems

Northern Arizona University seeks a postdoctoral researcher to participate in research projects focused on mapping, monitoring and modeling forest ecosystems, incorporating climate, land use, and disturbance dynamics. The successful candidate will work closely with the principle investigator (Goetz) and collaborators, using remote sensing observations, biodiversity data, and models to analyze the influence of multiple factors on forest ecosystem dynamics.

The position will require processing multi-sensor imagery, primarily satellite-based but also airborne remote sensing, to derive geospatial products characterizing ecosystem properties (e.g. canopy 3D structure, composition, habitat, biomass, regrowth dynamics), partly in context of the NASA GEDI mission. The research will advance analyses of disturbance and drivers of change through time. Exploration of state-of-the-art techniques to quantify relationships between structure and diversity in tropical environments is desirable. Ability to synthesize complex information and develop structured analyses in written and visual form is essential.

3. Faculty Position in Human and Socio-Technical Systems

Faculty Position in Human and Socio-Technical Systems

The Departments of Civil and Environmental Engineering and Systems and Information Engineering are forming a new academic department at the University of Virginia (UVA) in the School of Engineering and Applied Science (SEAS) with the mission of being world leaders in responding to some of society's most pressing challenges.

To achieve this vision, we are implementing a strategic multi-year cluster hire. Candidates for these tenured or tenure-track positions with expertise in the following research areas are our highest priority.

· Environmental Data Science: novel data science and big data approaches applied to critical problems in global water systems, climate change, public health engineering, environmental sustainability and resilience, and/or the water-energy nexus; large, distributed environmental data collection and analysis; satellite remote sensing; and climate engineering.

· Integrated Infrastructure, Large-Scale Systems, and Decision Support: holistic civil infrastructure systems modeling and management; risk assessment and analysis; novel remote sensing methods; systems analysis and control to assure performance in the face of physical and cyber attacks; broadly, all means of understanding the underlying physical processes, tying them to human needs, and using these three categories to guide decisions for support of these systems.

· Human-Automation Collaboration: modeling and simulation to represent human performance, cognition and behavior in the design and evaluation of systems comprising human/automation interactions. We are interested in applications in all areas of large-scale systems to include health care, security, intelligent engineering infrastructure (e.g. “smart cities”), transportation, water quality and quantity delivery, and industrial process control.

· Integrative Data Engineering: active health monitoring and control; sensor management and control; infrastructure health monitoring; human and public health; situational awareness of large scale systems possibly across networks of connected objects and devices; predictive and prescriptive analysis at scale and in real-time, design for acquisition, analysis, and sense-making of data.
