The School of Geographical Sciences and Urban Planning (SGSUP) at Arizona State University (ASU) seeks applications for a Postdoctoral Research Scholar with an anticipated start date of January 1, 2023 and preferably should be filled by March 1, 2023. The full-time, non-tenure-track, benefits-eligible, fiscal year (July 1 – June 30) position is for one year with renewal anticipated based on funding and performance.
The postdoctoral scholar will conduct research with Professor Amy Frazier on an NSF-sponsored award involving BioFI: Biodiversity Forecasting Initiative to Understand Population, Community and Ecosystem Function under Global Change. The position will be housed at ASU’s Tempe campus. The Tempe campus has approximately 60,000 students and is located in the rapidly growing metropolitan Phoenix area, which provides a wide variety of recreational and cultural opportunities and is especially desirable for outdoor enthusiasts who enjoy biking, hiking, skiing, and other activities in the exquisite Arizona canyon lands and rugged terrain.
Job Description: SGSUP is seeking to fill one Postdoctoral Research Scholar appointment that will contribute to research to improve predictions of how species respond to global change. The scholar will work with a team of researchers focused on understanding past change changes in biodiversity to predict future ecosystem functioning and leveraging new remote sensing missions for forecasting ecosystem functioning across space and time. The team is also focused on understanding how differing conservation decisions can minimize the impacts of global change responses.
The Postdoctoral Research Scholar will help design and execute research using a combination of novel environmental information and new remote sensing missions. The Scholar should therefore have expertise in gathering, managing, and analyzing remotely sensed data as well as a good understanding of the application of these data to ecology and ecosystem function.
