Dear Colleagues -

I want to draw your attention to the following job opening, which would be a wonderful postdoc opportunity for new PhDs with a background in ecology, earth system science, education, or computer science, and strong interest in citizen science, education and outreach, and the impacts of climate change on terrestrial vegetation.

The successful applicant will be based in Boulder, at NEON headquarters, but will work closely with me and a postdoc in my lab.  The position is available immediately, and applications are being reviewed as they are received. For more information about the PhenoCam network, please see http://phenocam.sr.unh.edu/

If you have any questions, please contact Sandra Henderson <shenderson at neoninc.org<mailto:shenderson at neoninc.org>> or Andrew Richardson <arichardson at oeb.harvard.edu<mailto:arichardson at oeb.harvard.edu>>.

Please feel free to re-post this notice on appropriate listservs and jobs boards, and share with potentially interested colleagues.


Associate Scientist, Project BudBurst: National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON) Project BudBurst (PBB) staff and researchers from the Richardson Lab at Harvard University are collaborating on a new approach to engage citizen scientists in ecological research that will result in the large-scale categorization and/or annotation of remotely sensed phenological imagery from the PhenoCam network. Part of the proposed effort will include the development of instructional materials and technical resources to enable volunteers to participate easily. The Associate Scientist develops significant portions of a new website and supporting educational materials that will include tutorials and modules. Modules should be designed to engage diverse audiences in the categorization and/or annotation of PhenoCam images, and to support the submission of additional plant phenology images via mobile devices. Specifically, the Associate Scientist will develop appropriate web-based technologies, applications, and interfaces to support the development of modules and tutorials for use in a pilot project designed to engage citizen scientists in the classification of remotely sensed imagery. This Boulder, CO based position will work in conjunction with NEON EDU and Public Engagement staff and will work collaboratively with a post-doc at Harvard University.
