Open: November/2021: Postdoctoral Research Associate (83164)


Project: Forest-Level Examination of Silviculture Effects on Ecosystem Services (ForESEES) through integration of Remote Sensing with Field Experiments

We seek a postdoctoral research associate to address fundamental questions related to pine forest management and ecology through integration of field plot and remotely sensed data. The preferred candidate will have interest in and experience using LiDAR and hyper-/multi-spectral data to estimate tree density, heights, and species composition. Individuals with strong quantitative abilities or programming experience (R, C++) and a desire to learn remote sensing techniques will also be considered. Expectations include leading manuscripts and assisting in proposal development and so experience in publishing research or acquiring funding are also desired. The associate will be located in the School of Forests, Fisheries and Geomatics Sciences (SFFGS) at the University of Florida, Gainesville. They will work collaboratively with Drs. Carlos Silva, Eben Broadbent, and Jason Vogel on a larger project to examine the relative production of ecosystem services (e.g., carbon, timber, water, and biodiversity) among forest management regimes. The position is funded for one-year at $50,000; however, if additional funding is acquired, and based on candidate performance, the timeline and/or base salary could be increased. The preferred start date is January 1st, 2022.
