Palo Alto, CA
Organization: Remote Sensing Ecohydrology Group, Stanford University
Duties: 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.
Desired qualifications: 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.
How to apply: To apply, please send a cover letter and CV to Prof. Alex Konings at firstname.lastname@example.org.
