Postdoctoral position for “Satellite data integration for global 
cropland mapping.”

Description: Stanford University’s Center on Food Security and the 
Environment (FSE) seeks 1-2 post-doctoral scholars to join a team 
developing global agricultural datasets. The project involves combining 
imagery from multiple sensors (Landsat, Sentinel-1, Sentinel-2, Planet, 
Skysat, and MODIS) with gridded weather, soil, and management data to 
produce annual maps of various properties, including crop types and 
yields. Post-docs are sought both to assist in the development of 
methods, as well as to lead studies that validate and apply these 
datasets to new questions and new regions.

Qualifications: The successful candidate should have a PhD in remote 
sensing, ecology, natural resources, agriculture, or a related field, 
have an interest in pursuing research in food security or agriculture, 
and be proficient in R and/or python programming. Experience working 
with Google Earth Engine is strongly desired. Familiarity using basic 
machine learning techniques such as random forests and support vector 
machines, and/or crop simulation models is desired.

To apply, please email David Lobell (dlobell at stanford.edu) 
<mailto:dlobell at stanford.edu%29> with the subject line “cropmap postdoc” 
and include your CV and names and emails of three references. Stanford 
University is an affirmative action and equal opportunity employer, 
committed to increasing the diversity of its workforce. It welcomes
