SUMMARY: We seek a postdoctoral researcher to map landscape changes in the Arctic caused by abrupt permafrost thaw. The postdoctoral researcher will lead development of a deep learning model to identify and map retrogressive thaw slumps at high spatial resolution across key regions of the Arctic. The successful candidate will have opportunities to work closely with a team of scientists at the Woodwell Climate Research Center and collaborating institutions on related projects, including the impacts of permafrost thaw on carbon budgets, climate policy, and Arctic communities. Responsibilities:
  • Efficiently process high-resolution remote sensing data products from multiple sources/platforms in a high-performance computing environment.
