Minimum: Ph. D. degree in the field of marine science, remote sensing, or a closely related quantitative discipline. Strong programming skills.
Preferred: The successful candidate should demonstrate excellence in scholar productivity in conducting and interpreting field- and/or lab-based optical measurements, ocean color remote sensing, or inter-disciplinary science. The successful candidate is expected to make significant improvement in interpreting optical measurements collected in the field or from satellites to advance the knowledge in hydrological optics and to derive biogeochemical stocks in aquatic environment.
January 2018. This is full time, 12-month position. The position is for one year, but can be renewed for up to 3 years depending on performance and funding availability.
Annual salary in range of $45,000 - $50,000 is commensurate with qualifications and experience. The position also qualifies for a full benefit package.
