Title Postdoctoral Research Associate I (Multiple Positions)
Department Ecology & Evolutionary Biology (0420)
Location Main Campus
Applications are invited for a creative postdoctoral scientist,
preferably with experience in field-instrumentation, image or remote
sensing analysis, and/or modeling, to join an interdisciplinary
collaboration in Brazil (jointly funded by U.S.DOE, and the Brazilian
Sao Paulo State and Amazonas State Science foundations). The science
goal is to use novel “local remote sensing” methods with novel camera
systems to discover how environmental and ecological mechanisms jointly
regulate the dynamics of photosynthesis in tropical forest canopies,
from individual tree crown to landscape scales.
/Outstanding UA benefits include health, dental, vision, and life
insurance; paid vacation, sick leave, and holidays; UA/ASU/NAUtuition
reduction for the employee and qualified family members; access to UA
recreation and cultural activities; and more!/

Duties & Responsibilities
The candidate will work as part of a team of Brazilian and U.S.
collaborators, and will focus on installation, analysis and
interpretation of advanced tower-based camera systems (we will have 3
vegetation camera systems — hyperspectral, thermal, and 4-bandRGB-NIR—
at two Amazon forest sites, along with hemispherical full-sky images of
the incoming radiation field). The research will involve collaborating
with a partner post-doc in Brazil (atINPE, the Brazilian space agency)
to apply advanced image analysis techniques for integration with
associated in situ and remote sensing data (including leaf-scale
measurements, eddy fluxes, and airborne LiDAR surveys and satellite
Ph.D. in Biology or related field and research experience in remote
sensing/image processing, atmospheric radiation, or engineering.
Preferably, the selected candidate will be highly motivated, have strong
communication skills, and seek to both take a leadership role for
specific project components and collaborate with members of a broad
international and interdisciplinary team; as well as have experience in
field-instrumentation, image or remote sensing analysis, and/or modeling.
