Postdoctoral Scholarin Optical Remote Sensing and Applications

The Optical Oceanography Lab (http://optics.marine.usf.edu) of the 
College of Marine Science at the University of South Florida (USF) is 
offering a 2-year Postdoctoral Scholar position in the field of optical 
remote sensing and applications. We are seeking an outstanding scientist 
with a recent doctorate in ocean optics or remote sensing, or a closely 
related field to work on Federal funded projects.

The successful candidate should demonstrate excellence in radiative 
transfer modeling, atmospheric correction (multi-band and hyperspectral) 
of satellite and airborne measurements (e.g., MODIS, MERIS, AVIRIS), 
algorithm development, and scholarly productivity. Strong programming 
skills in common languages such as FORTRAN, C/C++, IDL, or MatLAB are 
required. The successful candidate is expected to work heavily on 
hyperspectral data collected from both satellite and airborne platforms 
over both land and ocean in order to retrieve georeferenced and 
atmospherically corrected data products (e.g., surface reflectance, 
gaseous absorption, etc.). The successful candidate is also expected to 
work with other team members to apply these products in addressing 
inter-disciplinary Earth Science questions.

The position is available immediately, and the 2-year appointment can be 
extended, contingent upon satisfactory performance and funding 
availability. Annual salary is US$50,000 (or commensurable with 
experience) with standard fringe benefits.

The College of Marine Science at USF is a rapidly expanding group 
spanning all of the major marine science disciplines. We encourage 
interested applicants to review our research programs by visiting our
