ORNL12-79-CSMD — Post-Master’s or Postdoctoral Research Associate in
Computational Biogeoscience

Description:
The successful candidate will work with a highly diverse team of
environmental, ecological, remote sensing, climate, and computational
scientists at ORNL, other DOE Labs, the USDA Forest Service, and NASA to
perform spatial analysis, landscape characterization, and
representativeness analysis; and apply statistical methodologies for
pattern recognition and change detection using remote sensing data and
Earth System Model (ESM) results. The candidate will work with existing
computational algorithms and tools in an Open Source environment as well
as design and develop new tools for analysis and integration of field
data, model results, and remotely sensed imagery. The candidate will
explore new methods for identifying potential threats to forest health
in the U.S. and apply spatial analysis techniques to research problems
in climate and ecology. The candidate will conduct research and report
results in open literature journals, technical reports, and at relevant
conferences.

Qualifications:
A Ph.D. or Masters degree in an Earth or environmental science, computer
science, or civil or environmental engineering discipline is required.
Experience with spatial analysis using GRASS and document preparation
using LaTeX in a Linux or Unix environment is required. Proven
analytical skills using R and/or Python with PostgreSQL, and experience
with large scale data analytics are desired. Experience with MPI,
parallel algorithm development, C/C++, Fortran, Mercurial, and Trac is
preferred but not required. Excellent interpersonal skills for working
within a highly diverse team, strong oral and written communications
skills, good organizational skills, and high personal motivation are all
necessary.
