The USGS Earth Resources Observation and Science (EROS) Center is offering a research fellowship opportunity in the temporal dimensions of land surface change using remote sensing.
Closing Date is January 21 (2020) and the Research Opportunity will be filled depending on the availability of funds.
Research under this opportunity is focused on further development and improvement of the Continuous Change Detection and Classification (CCDC) algorithm developed by Zhu and Woodcock (2014) and novel applications to Earth surface processes for results.
Strong candidates are expected to have technical skills applicable to remote sensing and data analysis. The postdoctoral fellow will have opportunities to collaborate with university partners focused on CCDC development as well as the LCMAP team at EROS. Tools to investigate the extensive Landsat archive are being developed at EROS to support various studies. The Mendenhall Research Fellowship is an excellent opportunity to participate with a multidisciplinary team in a large-scale remote sensing project.
Interested applicants are strongly encouraged to contact the Research Advisors early in the application process to discuss project ideas.
