Title 	Postdoctoral Research Associate I (Multiple Positions)
Department 	Ecology & Evolutionary Biology (0420)
Location 	Main Campus
Position Summary 	

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!/

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
