Assistant Professor in Geodesy and Remote Sensing (tenure-track)

Employeur : CIRES, University of Colorado Boulder
Zone géographique : Boulder, Colorado, USA
Date de parution : 19 janvier 2016


The Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences (CIRES), an interdisciplinary research institute within the University of Colorado Boulder, invites applications for a tenure-track faculty member at the Assistant Professor level specializing in the areas of geodesy and remote sensing of Earth. The position is rostered in CIRES, with tenure and teaching responsibilities in a relevant academic department including, but not limited to, Geological Sciences, Aerospace Engineering Sciences, Physics, or Geography.

We are seeking a multidisciplinary Earth scientist who uses advanced geodetic and remote sensing techniques to study surface and subsurface processes of the Earth. It is anticipated that the successful candidate will have research interests in one or more areas related to earth-surface change detection of environmental processes. Techniques might include terrestrial, airborne, or satellite LiDAR, radar altimetry, GPS, optically sensed image coregistration, InSAR, or other methods. Candidates whose expertise complements that of existing CIRES faculty and researchers in cryospheric processes, natural hazards, tectonics, geomorphology, or geohydrology are particularly encouraged.

Potential synergies in CIRES, on campus, and from the larger Boulder community include the Earth Science and Observation Center (ESOC); the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC), Western Water Assessment (, UNAVCO, and NOAA. The successful candidate will be expected to maintain an active, externally funded research program, supervise graduate students, and teach at both undergraduate and graduate levels.

Minimum academic requirements include a PhD at the time of appointment in Geological Sciences, Aerospace Engineering, Physics, or Geography or a related field with a demonstrated research record in geodesy or remote sensing applied to earth sciences.
