*SESYNC-Microsoft Postdoctoral Fellowship - Big Data and
Microsoft has developed two novel environmental datasets and applicants are
expected to propose ideas for a data synthesis or modeling project that
addresses an important environmental question that makes use of one or more
of these assets:
*Geospatial Socio-Environmental Research*
New land cover data at high spatial and temporal resolution offers the
potential to improve understanding of landscape processes and to empower
local planners and managers in identifying risks and prioritizing
responses. In collaboration with Microsoft, the Chesapeake Conservancy and
the Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife have pioneered the
production of high accuracy, high-resolution (1 meter) land cover datasets
for the Chesapeake Bay and Puget Sound watersheds.
Applications are invited for a project that leverages these high-resolution
land cover data to address one or more important socio-environmental
*Project Premonition and Socio-Environmental Systems *
Working with academic partners, Microsoft’s Project Premonition designed
mosquito traps with smart cells that can identify mosquito species based on
wing movements and then capture those of interest along with key
environmental data including time, temperature and light levels (
Applications are invited for a project that leverages these data.
Particular areas of interest include: exploration of host diversity or
population dynamics as they relate to land cover and microclimates, human
disturbance gradients, and other factors.
Please consider applying and share the news!
