Job Opportunity – Post Doctoral Fellowship in Hyperspectral Remote Sensing
The Remote Sensing Laboratory at the University of New Brunswick is seeking applications for a two year (reviewed annually) MITACS-sponsored post-doctoral fellowship in hyperspectral remote sensing. Based in Fredericton, NB (Canada), the Remote Sensing Laboratory is looking for candidates with a Ph.D. in Remote Sensing, Earth Sciences, Geography, or any field related to the experience required for this position. Knowledge of hyperspectral remote sensing will be an asset. The successful candidate will be working on a project supporting eelgrass monitoring by utilizing hyperspectral remote sensing methodologies to map eelgrass beds in James Bay.
The duties of the candidate will include: (1) hyperspectral remote sensing data processing and analysis, (2) developing and/or modeling and validating hyperspectral remote sensing research methods for mapping eelgrass
beds, (3) planning and supporting field data collection campaigns and, (4) paper and report writing. The candidate will be expected to conduct independent and innovative research in this field and to publish significant
research findings. The candidate will develop new and modify existing methods to derive information for mapping eelgrass beds.
Candidates should have demonstrated expertise in one or more of the following areas:
* Knowledge in developing remote sensing methods related to hyperspectral imagery
* Knowledge in spectral unmixing models
* Ability in processing and analysis of hyperspectral data
The candidate should be willing to travel and work on weekends/holidays on occasion; a full G driver’s license is a requirement. The successful candidate will be working with a dynamic research laboratory that is located in
Fredericton (NB), a thriving, green community, rich in natural and cultural.
The start date is as early as possible and applications will be accepted until the position is filled. For more information or to submit letters of interest along with your resume (including two references and list of publications, please contact:
