Postdoctoral position in Proximal and Remote Sensing of Forest Health
The programs of Drs. Matthew Ginzel and John Couture are looking to fill a postdoctoral position investigating the use of proximal and remote sensing techniques to 1) detect/predict the impact of invasive species and environmental change on forest health at local and landscape scales and 2) improve and accelerate climate-resilient tree breeding efforts. The successful individual will have a PhD with expertise in some combination of plant pest and pathogen biology, tree physiology, forest health, remote sensing, and spectroscopy. Familiarity with applications of machine learning and other approaches for the analysis of high dimensional data would be beneficial. The position is currently for one year, with a very competitive salary and benefits, starting immediately, with renewal depending on available funding.
