Current Job Openings
NCEAS and Microsoft AI for Earth are partnering to fill a postdoctoral position to inform the science of sustained, automated, and technology-driven ecosystem assessment, based at NCEAS in Santa Barbara, California. This initiative will support multidisciplinary synthesis working groups and research aimed at tackling key questions around how to operationalize and automate rapid ecosystem assessments.
This postdoctoral researcher will be based at NCEAS in Santa Barbara, California under the mentorship of Dr. Ben Halpern and will participate in the research of one or more funded working groups currently being solicited (to be awarded by Dec 2020), depending on experience and interest, as well as conduct independent research related to ecosystem assessment. This position will give the postdoc significant opportunities to maximize the impact of their research, and to work at the interface of cloud-based AI and ecological synthesis science.
