Dear colleague,

(sent on behalf of Prof. Youngryel Ryu)

we at the Environmental Ecology Lab (PI: Prof. Youngryel Ryu) in Seoul, South Korea are hiring two Postdocs for large scale crop monitoring using remote sensing and statistical and process-based modelling techniques:

job posting:

Title: 2 postdocs in global crop monitoring @ Seoul National University

We are seeking two postdoctoral fellows for a recently funded 4 year
project for global crop monitoring. It will focus on corn, wheat, and
soybean. Those positions are available immediately and will be opened until

Postdoc 1 will work on crop type mapping by merging massive ground truth
data, machine learning techniques, and satellite remote sensing. Depending
on cloudiness, image fusion techniques could be applied. Landsat scale
outcomes will be delivered.

Postdoc 2 will investigate crop growth conditions (photosynthesis,
transpiration, stress) and yield mapping. It will combine developing
process based models via carbon allocation schemes (BESS-Corn, BESS-Wheat,
BESS-Soybean, check this:
and simple satellite remote sensing based approaches such as SIF and NIRv.

Contact to Youngryel Ryu ( if you are passionate for
those topics, have great ideas to achieve this complex, challenging task,
are learning animal, and are willing to join our adventure towards the
vision, ?A sustainable world where ecological information is available and
accessible to anyone.?  I will request cover letter, CV, and the names and
contact information of three references.

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 whereas ?Gangnam?, the center of amusement in Seoul, is
within 30 min. There are diverse groups of international students/scholars.
There is a dormitory for international scholars which offers low cost, nice
housing for family or single.

If you have any question, feel free to send emails to Dr Ryu ( Welcome to visit our lab webpage to see our research
