Subject: Seeking Post Doc Applicants in Thermal Infrared Remote Sensing

The Geophysical Institute, University of Alaska Fairbanks is seeking
applications for a Post-Doctoral position in the field of thermal
infrared remote sensing, specifically as applied to geothermal
exploration. The selected candidate will join the remote sensing group
at the Geophysical Institute, UAF (, will
be working in close collaboration with the Alaska Center for Energy
and Power (, and will be leading the task on
airborne thermal infrared data acquisition, processing, and

Experience in use of thermal infrared imaging equipment, airborne data
acquisition planning, image mosaicing and georeferencing, and thermal
infrared data interpretation is required. A strong background in
geology and geophysics, GIS, and computational skills is beneficial.
The work will involve limited field work and interaction with
community members in Alaska. Good interpersonal and communication
(oral and written) skills are highly desired.

Applicants should have PhD degree (already received, or having
completed all requirements and waiting graduation) in a relevant
discipline.  Duties include

working with the project to set-up an airborne data acquisition system
that will acquire images in visible through infrared regions of the
spectrum, along with potentially other instruments; flight planning
and coordinating with field crew for reference data collection;
supervision of data acquisition campaign; data processing (image
mosaicing; georeferencing; integrating in a GIS system); data analysis
and interpretation (generating target exploration maps, quantitative
estimates of geothermal prospect); and publishing results and
communicating results to research/community partners.

As the data acquisition is planned for summer 2010, recruitment will
take place at the earliest. Interested applicants are encouraged to
