The Remote Sensing Ecohydrology Group at Stanford University in Palo Alto,
CA is seeking a highly motivated postdoctoral fellow to join the group. We
work to understand how ecosystems respond to and affect variations in water
availability using remote sensing and remote sensing-constrained analyses.
Multiple research topics are available. The postdoc will work to either: a)
understand the drivers and mechanisms controlling interannual variability
in tropical photosynthesis using a data-consistent carbon cycle data
assimilation system and new satellite observations of CO2 and vegetation
water content, or b) build a model-data fusion framework for inferring
ecosystem-scale vegetation hydraulic traits from microwave remote sensing
data, and analysis of these traits for a variety of ecohydrological
studies. Each of these projects will include collaborations with
researchers beyond Stanford, including at NASA JPL and elsewhere.
Applicants should have strong, demonstrated quantitative and communication
skills. Experience working with ecological modeling, remote sensing data
analysis, and/or microwave remote sensing is preferred. To apply, please
send a cover letter and CV to Prof. Alex Konings at konings at stanford.edu.
Stanford University is an equal opportunity employer and is committed to
increasing the diversity of its staff. It welcomes applications from women,
members of minority groups, protected veterans, and individuals with
disabilities, as well as from others who would bring additional dimensions
to the university's research, teaching and clinical missions.
