POSTDOCTORAL ASSOCIATE, Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE), to work in the area of environmental remote sensing as part of a collaborative, NSF-funded project. Will focus on detecting and estimating fine-grained changes in tropical forests mediated by both natural and man-made forces. Will join a collaboration between Saurabh Amin, Dave Des Marais, Dara Entekhabi, and Charles Harvey and be directly advised by one or two of the principal investigators according to the postdoc's interests/background. The broader project addresses illicit supply networks, particularly the timber trade, with a focus on using analytics and model-based tools to detect and disrupt illegal operations in these networks. Will also have an opportunity to develop an independent research project related to the central aims of the program.

Additional details about the project are available at https://www.nsf.gov/awardsearch/showAward?AWD_ID=2039771&HistoricalAwards=false.
