Dear Colleagues - 

I am looking to hire two new data scientist postdocs to join the PhenoCam project (http://phenocam.sr.unh.edu), and would appreciate help in getting the word out. 

The first position (NAU Job ID 603575) is focused on modeling and ecological analysis. The postdoc will lead efforts to develop phenological models for key vegetation types and analyze the role of phenology in regulating biosphere-atmosphere interactions and feedbacks using empirical and model-based approaches. Applicants must be willing to work collaboratively on team projects. This position is funded by a new grant from NSF’s Macrosystems Biology program. 

The second position (NAU Job ID 603576) is focused on coding and the development of software tools. The postdoc will lead efforts to develop new software tools to facilitate the integration and synthesis of phenological data from PhenoCam, satellite remote sensing, ground observations, and gridded data products. The ideal applicant will be interested in ecological applications of “big data”, but will also have extensive prior training in computer science and programming. This position is funded by a new grant from NASA’s Advanced Information Systems Technology program. 

The listing for each position, as well as an online application, can be found by going to this web page, clicking “Search Jobs Now”, and entering either the ID numbers above (603575 and 603576) or PhenoCam as a keyword:
Applications will be reviewed beginning February 5. Both positions are available immediately. A separate application is required for each position. Applications must be submitted online through the NAU HR web page. 

Flagstaff’s phenomenally beautiful setting, excellent recreational and outdoor opportunities, superb weather, and relaxed culture make this a wonderful place to live, work, and enjoy life!  See, for example: http://www.bestchoiceschools.com/20-great-small-college-towns-with-great-quality-of-life/

Please email me directly with any questions.

Thank you and best wishes for 2018-
