Description
The MU Limnology Lab in the School of Natural Resources at the University of Missouri-Columbia (MU) and Horn Point Lab (HPL) in the Maryland Center for Environmental Science (UMCES) are seeking an enthusiastic post-doctoral candidate to work on a 3-year NASA funded research project. The overarching goal of the project is to assess the efficacy and accuracy of remotely sensed data to predict water quality metrics in Missouri reservoirs. This project will leverage two large and ongoing water quality monitoring programs, and open-source remote-sensing data available through Google Earth Engine. We are interested in collaborative and keen candidates that have a strong background in either limnology or remote sensing. A significant portion of this research will be working with Python-based Google Earth Engine scripts, so demonstrable programming skills or a genuine desire to acquire these skills is essential. We offer a competitive salary, medical coverage, and opportunities for professional development.
Qualifications
To apply, please send as a single PDF: 1) cover letter outlining your background, expertise, and interests, 2) a recent CV, and 3) unofficial transcripts to Rebecca North northr@missouri.edu and Greg Silsbe gsilsbe@umces.edu with the subject header ‘NASA post-doc position’. The preferred start date is May 2022, and the application deadline is April 1st, 2022. Please do not hesitate to contact us for any additional information.
