I am currently looking for a new postdoctoral fellow! If you think our group and your background would be a good fit, please email Alex at with a CV and a description of your research interests. Multiple research topics are available. The postdoc will work to either: a) test newly derived datasets of canopy water content based on microwave radiometry and apply these to a variety of ecological questions or b) use a global carbon cycle data assimilation system constrained by remote sensing (CARDAMOM) to understand the spatial variability of carbon cycle parameters and their implication for global scale modelling. I am, of course, also open to discussing your research ideas. Applicants should have strong, demonstrated quantitative, computational, and communication skills. Experience working with ecological modeling, remote sensing data analysis, and/or microwave remote sensing is preferred. If that sounds like you, please reach out! Applications will be reviewed starting August 17th, until filled. Candidates from underrepresented groups are especially encouraged to apply

Natan will be using the NASA FINESST fellowship to continue his work analyzing field campaign results relating VOD and water potential as well as mapping the response of VOD to water status and biomass changes to improve predictions of how vegetation will respond to future drought. Congratulations, Natan!
