*****NOTE From Helen Amanda Fricker*****

 

We seek to fill a position at the Postdoctoral Researcher level to work as
part of the Ice, Cloud and land Elevation Satellite (ICESat) team at Scripps
Institution of Oceanography (SIO), the University of California San Diego
(UCSD), http:// scripps.ucsd.edu/.  The position will primarily involve
calibration and validation of ICESat data at calibration sites we have
previously established on stable reference surfaces (the salar de Uyuni in
Bolivia and the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah).  The chosen candidate for
this position will work on three separate aspects of the project: ongoing
validation of ICESat measurements using existing survey data from our
calibration sites; the design and implementation of an experiment to
calibrate ICESat reflectance measurements; and resurveys of the Bonneville
(and/or Uyuni) Salt Flat using kinematic GPS, including the installation of
a permanent GPS station on the salt flats to identify and measure seasonal
variability of surface elevation.  The successful candidate will ideally
have experience in GPS and laser altimetry and have a solid understanding of
geodesy.  Subject to the interests of the successful candidate, there will
also be opportunities to work on other ICESat-related projects on the ice
sheets.

 

Salary will be determined by the University commensurate with qualifications
and experience and based on the University of California pay scale, plus
benefits.  The successful candidate is expected to start by July 1st 2008,
although this is negotiable. The position is for one year, with renewal for
a second year by mutual agreement.  Applications should be sent
electronically (application letter, CV and a list of three referees) to
Helen Amanda Fricker hafricker at ucsd.edu by February 29th 2008.  A brief
notice of intent of application before this date would be appreciated.

 

UCSD is an Equal Opportunity Employer, with a strong institutional
commitment to excellence through diversity.

 

Thank you.
