Hi all

CSS is seeking a *Remote Sensing Specialist/Research Associate* for
full-time employment to support NOAA’s Beaufort Laboratory, National Center
for Coastal Ocean Science (NCCOS) in *Beaufort, NC*. The primary focus area
for this position will be to work with NCCOS and partners to develop
geospatial products describing habitats in the coral reef ecosystems of the
Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary (FKNMS).  The products will be
generated from a variety of remotely sensed data sources, including
satellite imagery, LIDAR, and multibeam sonar.

*Core Responsibilities:*

   - Use established and novel approaches to interpret and model benthic
   habitat information and classify seafloor geomorphology from remotely
   sensed data using a variety of software products. The habitat
   classification will be informed by field observations including underwater
   video from drop cameras or remotely operated vehicles and still images
   collected by SCUBA divers.
   - Take a leadership role in data organization and management to ensure
   that data products and metadata are delivered according to project
   - Substantially contribute to data management, statistical model
   development, organizing meetings and webinars with partners, co-lead
   writing and preparation of project presentations, reports, peer-reviewed
   publications, and outreach to communicate the outcomes in professional and
   public venues.
   - If funding allows, travel to the Florida Keys may be required for
   partner meetings and field sampling.
