Dear Colleagues

Please find below announcement for a post-doctoral position on "Remote sensing of terrestrial carbon cycles in East Asia" at Seoul National University, Korea. I would be appreciate your assistance in disseminating the announcement to potential candidates. 

Best wishes,

Postdoctoral Researcher: Remote sensing of terrestrial carbon cycles in East Asia [Seoul National University (SNU)]

Job description:

The Environmental Ecology Lab at Seoul National University is seeking one postdoctoral fellow to study remote sensing of terrestrial carbon cycles (gross primary productivity, autotrophic respiration, heterotrophic respiration) in East Asia. The postdoc researcher will 1)develop satellite-based photosynthesis and ecosystem respiration models, 2) evaluate and improve the models using “scaling” process from multi-satellite remote sensing data and in-situ observation of carbon balance data from AsiaFlux Network, and 3) combine the models and long-term satellite data to produce photosyntehsis, ecosystem respiration, and net ecosystem exchange maps between 1982 and 2012 at 8 km resolution, 15 day intervals in East Asia. To link in-situ measurement, near-surface remote sensing and satellite remote sensing, the postdoc researcher will conduct several field campaigns.


A PhD in biometeorology, remote sensing, biogeoscience, hydrology or a related field is required. Applicants should have strong analytical and quantitative skills in processing and analyzing large volume of remote sensing data, and in-depth knowledge in scientific programming language (ideally, MATLAB or R) and Linux system. Strong background in terrestrial carbon cycles is required. Moderate to excellent skills in English are expected. Past experience in analyzing eddy flux tower data is preferred. Active involvement in field trips and driving license are required.

General information:

Seoul National University is located in the Gwanak Mountain, southern part of the Seoul City in South Korea. Numerous mountain trails are accessible in the campus and the center of amusement in Seoul is within 30 min. There are diverse groups of international students/scholars (currently, 2800 international students/scholars are enrolled). There is a dormitory for international scholars and a new building will be built soon. 

This is a 1-year position. Pending successful performance, the position may be renewed up to 3 years. The position is available immediately. The review of applications will start immediately until the position is filled. Please submit applications (including cover letter, CV, and the names and contact information of three references) via email to Assistant Professor, Youngryel Ryu ( If you have any question, feel free to send emails to Dr Ryu.
