Seeking a Postdoctoral Researcher to study flood inundation estimation from remote sensing observations
 
We are seeking a highly-motivated postdoctoral researcher to work on a research two-year project on flood inundation estimation from satellite remote sensing observations. The successful applicant will join the hydrology and remote sensing group at the Florida Institute of Technology, Melbourne, FL. The project is funded by NOAA and the research work will be carried out in collaboration with the Iowa Flood Center at the University of Iowa and the Earth System Science Interdisciplinary Center at the University of Maryland.

 

The successful applicant will pursue research focused on developing a framework for quantifying and modeling uncertainty of satellite-based flood inundation estimates. The work will involve the analysis of remote sensing dataset and the application of hydrologic/hydraulic models. Therefore, preference will be given to candidates with prior experience in remote sensing and/or hydrologic/hydraulic modeling. Demonstrated skill in using GIS software as well as programming in Python or similar is highly desirable.

 

Expected start date for the position is July 1st, 2020 (some flexibility on the exact date is possible).

The initial appointment will be one year in duration, and funding is available to extend the initial appointment by up to one additional year.
 
To be considered, please email Prof. Efthymios Nikolopoulos (enikolopoulos@fit.edu) a CV and any other relevant information. Applications will be considered starting on May 20, 2020, and the position will remain open until filled.
