Post-doctoral Fellowship in Wetland InSAR

Applications are invited for a Post-doctoral Research fellowship in  
Wetland InSAR as a joint position between University of Miami (UM) and  
Florida International University (FIU). The position is part of a NASA  
support project focusing on hydro-ecology of tropical wetlands.

The successful applicant will join an active geodetic research program  
at UM and a hydrological research program at FIU. The position is  
available immediately.

Candidates should have, or be near completion of, a PhD in Geodesy,  
Geophysics or related areas. The candidate will conduct space-based  
hydro-ecology research using Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR)  
observations. The candidate should be familiar with SAR interferometry  
(InSAR) data processing and analysis. Experience with Polarimetric SAR  
(PolSAR) and Polarimetric InSAR (PolInSAR) data processing is an  
advantage. The research will involve the application of these  
processing technique to SAR data acquire over the Everglades (south  
Florida) and Sian Ka’an (Yucatan, Mexico) to monitor surface water  
levels, soil moisture, vegetation classification, vegetation  
structure, and their changes with time.
