The Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California Institute of Technology, located in Pasadena, California invites applications for a full-time scientist position to investigate land surface temperature and emissivity datasets and their use in land surface, atmospheric and climate research.  The applicant will join the Earth Surface Science group of the Climate, Oceans and Solid Earth Science Section.

Emphasis will be given to scientists with experience using multi-sensor, multi-platform satellite thermal infrared data from both geostationary and low Earth orbit platforms, and with analysis of the data they produce to carry out investigations of land surface processes and/or climate studies related to the hydrologic cycle. Full salary support is expected to be available for up to three years, during which time the successful applicant is expected to develop an externally funded research program.  The ideal candidate will have experience with MODIS imaging sensors from Terra and Aqua satellites and other related sensor systems and data sources, such as GOES, VIIRS, SEVIRI, ASTER and correlative data sets. Experience in organizing airborne deployments and analysis of thermal infrared data acquired from airborne platforms is highly desirable. Experience in scientific programming, radiative transfer modeling, and statistical analysis is highly desirable.

Applicants at the junior career level are invited, although the successful applicant should have a Ph.D. with at least three years of experience and an established reputation as evidenced by a significant record of peer-reviewed publications.  The incumbent is expected to collaborate with other researchers, analyze and interpret data from an array of satellite instruments used to measure land surface parameters, with a particular emphasis on land surface temperature and emissivity retrievals, and participate in establishing the science foundation and requirements for future space missions.  Opportunities exist for developing collaborations with nearby universities such as the California Institute of Technology, University of California at Irvine, University of Southern California, and the University of California at Los Angeles.

Applications including a curriculum vitae, list of peer-reviewed publications, names and contact information of three references, and a statement of research interests should be sent to: Simon.J.Hook at jpl.nasa.gov and submitted through the JPL CareerLaunch website. Applications will be reviewed as they are received.  JPL is a Federally-Funded Research and Development Center operated by the California Institute of Technology for NASA.  JPL/Caltech is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer.
