Postdoc for remote sensing of GHG fluxes in wetland

We are seeking one postdoctoral fellow for upscaling CO2 and CH4 fluxes from wetland flux towers to landscape scales. This is an interdisciplinary project involving multiple teams in remote sensing (us), eddy covariance system, soil biogeochemistry and land surface modeling to quantify landscape scale wetland GHG fluxes. 

Tasks:

  • Field site maintenance/data collections with field technicians. Regular drone/LiDAR data acquisitions are required.

  • Data analysis of tower based hyperspectral data

  • Linking tower/chamber based GHG data (measured by other teams) with remote sensing 

Qualifications:

  • Excellent skills in programming at least one of Python, R, MATLAB

  • Big data processing/analysis with strong quantitative skill

  • PhD in remote sensing, or biometeorology or related fields

  • Moderate (or better) level of English speaking/writing

  • Communication skills internally (lab) and externally (international collaborators)

  • Teamwork first spirit

  • Driving license

Duties:

  • Writing journal papers 

  • Presenting research outcomes in scientific meetings

  • Writing annual project report

  • Mentoring graduate students 

 

Contact to Youngryel Ryu (ryuyr77@gmail.com) if you are passionate for those topics, have great ideas to understand this complex challenging task, are learning animal, and are willing to join our adventure towards the vision, “a sustainable world where ecological information is available and accessible to anyone.”  I will request a cover letter, CV, and the names and contact information of three references. The positions are available immediately and will be open until filled. 

 

Seoul National University is located in the Gwanak Mountain, southern part of the Seoul City in South Korea. Numerous mountain trails are accessible in the campus whereas “Gangnam”, the center of amusement in Seoul, is within 30 min. There are diverse groups of international students/scholars. There is a dormitory for international scholars which offers low cost, nice housing for families or singles.
