The College of Marine Science, University of South Florida, seeks a
Research Associate to work on an ambitious remote sensing program
targeting coral reef environments.

The successful candidate will lead a team and will be responsible for
collecting, processing, analyzing, and synthesizing results of field
data and large volumes of digital image data collected over coral reef

Preferred qualifications are a Ph.D. in oceanography or a similar
science area. The candidate should be experienced in the collection,
analysis and presentation of extensive field experimental and digital
image data. Familiarity with time series, classification schemes, and
current shallow-water aquatic algorithms for VIS optical image data
(bio-optical/bathymetry, etc.) is desired.

The position requires a high degree of inventive and independent
thinking as well as leadership skills. Essential qualifications include
demonstrated scientific programming experience in FORTRAN, C, and
