1. Postdoctoral Research Associate, Environmental Sciences/Ecological Research

Postdoctoral Research Associate – University of Virginia

The Department of Environmental Sciences at the University of Virginia (UVA) seeks a Postdoctoral Research Associate to work on the remote sensing of vegetation photosynthesis from multiple spatial scales. The successful candidate will be working on leaf to canopy level measurements of solar-induced fluorescence (SIF) and its linkage to plant photosynthesis. The postdoc will measure SIF using field spectrometers, drones, and airborne remote sensing.

A Ph.D. in plant physiology, ecology, earth system science, remote sensing, or a related field is required. Knowledge of recent development of SIF and experience with leaf gas exchange measurements will be preferred. Knowledge of one or more advanced computer programming languages is required, including Matlab or R. The successful candidate should be enthusiastic, creative, and highly motivated. Strong skills in verbal and written communication of scientific results, ability to work both independently and collaboratively as a member of interdisciplinary teams, and ability to organize, prioritize, and coordinate multiple tasks are critical skills.

Appointment is for one year with possibility of a renewal for one additional year, contingent upon satisfactory performance and funding. The completion of a Ph.D. in earth system sciences or related field is required by appointment start date. The anticipated start date will be in late Jun-Jul, 2017.

4. Postdoctoral Research Fellow position in Global Internal Tide/Wave Modeling

A postdoctoral research fellow is sought for a collaborative project between the University of Michigan, University of Southern Mississippi, Naval Research Laboratory (NRL), and NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), on global high-resolution simulations of internal tides and waves. The successful applicant will examine internal tides and waves in US Navy and NASA global models. Topics of specific interest include the predictability of internal tides and waves, the signature of internal tides and waves on sea surface height, comparison of model results to in-situ observations, and the application of global models for present-generation nadir satellite altimetry and next-generation swath altimetry missions. The project represents an opportunity for an early-career scientist to analyze cutting edge high resolution ocean models run on the nation's largest supercomputers.
