Postdoc position on remote sensing and biodiversity

UW-Madison, SILVIS Lab is offering one postdoc position focused on remote sensing and biodiversity, as part of a new USGS-funded project. The project is a collaboration between UW-Madison (V. Radeloff, A. Pidgeon), and the Humboldt University in Berlin (P. Hostert). The goals of the project are to: a) derive a suite of new remote sensing indices relevant for biodiversity questions from Landsat satellite data, b) test these indices as predictors of bird biodiversity, as represented in the North American Breeding Bird Survey, and c) make predictive maps of bird biodiversity for the conterminous U.S. Positions: We are offering the...

PhD on evaluating the coastal protection services of coastal ecosystems in Southeastern Australia

PhD position to study the coastal protection services provided by coastal ecosystems in south eastern Australia This project will: 1) employ field techniques to estimate and monitor wave and erosion reduction through vegetated coastal ecosystems, and 2) incorporate remote sensing and land use data to quantify and map the avoided erosion and storm surge reduction services of these ecosystems in south eastern Australia. This project will provide key information for industry project partners and coastal zone managers in coastal risk assessment and management in south eastern Australia. The project will have both heavy field and desk-based (remote sensing) components,...
