Research Scientist - Remote Sensing and Analysis of Ice Sheet & Ice Shelf Processes
The Jet Propulsion Laboratory invites applications for a Scientist who will bring expertise in remote sensing and analysis of massive data archives to derive geophysical understanding of ice sheet and ice shelf processes. The successful candidate will produce and lead high-profile, science that derives improved process understanding of ice shelf-ocean-glacier interactions from large volumes of remotely sensed (airborne and satellite) datasets. Specifically, the candidate will develop novel methods for retrieving large scale and continuous geophysical records relevant to ice shelf and glacier research from homogenous, discontinuous and low signal observations.
The following qualifications are preferred:
Complete applications will include a cover letter describing the applicant's vision for their role at JPL as a leader and contributor in the area of remote sensing and cryospheric science, a curriculum vita including a bibliography of refereed and other work, a statement on research experience and research objectives, and contact information for at least three professional references
Applications are due by May 23, 2020 or until filled and should be submitted at: https://jpl.jobs/jobs/2020-11826-Remote-Sensing-and-Ice-Scientist
