The successful candidate will have or be working towards a doctoral degree in a relevant field such as (but not limited to), ecology, forestry, computer science, natural resources or geography. At a minimum, applicants must have completed all degree requirements for the Ph.D. or equivalent degree with the exception of dissertation at the time of application. Ph.D. or equivalent degree is required by the appointment start date. We seek a candidate with strong quantitative skills who can conduct innovative research to advance our abilities to discover, analyze and model trends and relationships in very large spatio-temporal datasets derived from numerous remote sensing sources of varying scales, attributes, and multiple dates of observation which must be synthesized. The successful candidate must have strong quantitative, modeling and simulation skills as applied to environmental spatio-temporal processes. Prior experience in applications of remote sensing and field data collection in land, air and water resources is desirable due to the drought and wildland fire problems that are facing California. We are especially interested in candidates who have postdoctoral or equivalent research experience in remote sensing and geospatial analytics with a demonstrated record of research excellence using innovative approaches and broad array of research techniques (e.g., field data collection, data mining, spatio-temporal analysis, object-based analysis, data fusion, etc.).
Preferred qualifications include demonstrated excellence in research, extensive modeling and quantitative skills, evidence of outstanding scholarship within a relevant discipline, a dedication to excellence in teaching at the undergraduate and graduate level, a commitment to working in an inclusive and interdisciplinary environment, an interest in communicating with the scientific community and broader public, and a dedication to advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion that aligns with UC Berkeley's mission to meet the educational needs of California's diverse population.
Serious consideration will be given to the candidate's potential for success in mentoring Ph.D. students and teaching at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. Professional service, including issues of access to and diversity in higher education and the academic profession will also be considered. The successful applicant will be responsible for developing a broad-based remote sensing course at the undergraduate level and a graduate course of their design in remote sensing. These courses will contribute to the Graduate Certificate, and the Minor, in GIS and Technology. To learn more about our department please visit: http://ourenvironment.berkeley.edu/.
Candidates should submit the following materials for a complete application: A cover letter A current curriculum vitae A statement of research interests and experience A statement of teaching A statement of contributions to diversity Three publications or writing samples Names and contact information for three referees. Letters of reference will only be solicited for finalists.
Each document should be submitted as a separate pdf file. Filenames should include the applicant's last and first names. All letters will be treated as confidential per University of California policy and California state law. Please refer potential referees, including when letters are provided via a third party (i.e., dossier service or career center), to the UC Berkeley statement of confidentiality (http://apo.berkeley.edu/evalltr.html) prior to submitting their letters.

The University of California was chartered in 1868 and its flagship campus - envisioned as a "City of Learning" - was established at Berkeley, on San Francisco Bay. Today the world's premier public university and a wellspring of innovation, UC Berkeley occupies a 1,232 acre campus with a sylvan 178-acre central core. From this home its academic community makes key contributions to the economic and social well-being of the Bay Area, California, and the nation.
