Worcester Polytechnic Institute Department of Mathematical Sciences calls application for Postdoctoral Fellowship. The institute has an opening for a 12-month postdoc position that is available immediately. The position will be supported by Prof. Wang’s collaborative grant with a strong team of researchers at the University of Wisconsin–Madison.
At the advances of remote sensing technologies; there is a growing number of datasets that have both broad spatial extent and repeated observations over time. These datasets provide unprecedented opportunities for detecting broad-scale changes through time and for forecasting into the future. However, rigorously testing for patterns in these datasets and confidently making forecasts require a solid statistical foundation that is currently lacking. The goal of the project is to develop new statistical tools to analyze big, remotely sensed data that will add rigor to the conclusions about patterns of past changes and confidence to the forecasts of future trends around the globe. It will test the statistical methods with AVHRR/GIMMS3g, MODIS, AMSR-E, JAXA/JASMES, and Landsat data at global and regional scales to demonstrate the feasibility and highlight the value of our approach to the remote sensing community at large.
Interested candidates who are eligible for working in the US. can contact Prof. Wang at [email protected] for questions for this Fellowship at Worcester Polytechnic Institute.
Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) is a private research university in Worcester, Massachusetts, focusing on the instruction and research of technical arts and applied sciences. WPI was one of the United States’ first engineering and technology universities. Moreover, now it has 14 academic departments with over 50 undergraduate and graduate degree programs in science, engineering, technology, management, the social sciences, and the humanities and arts, leading to bachelor’s, master’s and PhD degrees.
