We are seeking an outstanding candidate who is excited about working in an interdisciplinary setting and will complement existing faculty research interests and strengths. The candidate is expected to develop a nationally and internationally recognized, externally funded research program involving Masters and Doctoral students in the areas of remote sensing, digital image processing, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) and geospatial analysis. Experience in the fields of LIDAR and/or hyperspectral imagery, UAVs, and geospatial technology applications related to natural resource management issues, such as land use change, invasive species monitoring and wildlife conservation, are required. A valid Remote Pilot Certificate from the FAA is highly desirable as well as experience working with “big” datasets.
Responsibilities will involve environmental remote sensing and digital image processing courses at the graduate and undergraduate level. Graduate teaching may also include development of courses in the candidate’s area of expertise.
The successful candidate will contribute to the School’s vision as a premier, national center of excellence in natural resources and environmental science education, research and outreach. Interdisciplinary research opportunities exist with the newly created College of Computing, the Great Lakes Research Institute, the Michigan Tech Research Institute, and other research groups across campus.
Employees are required to apply safety-related knowledge, skills, and practices to everyday work and expected to commit to learning about continuous improvement strategies and applying them to everyday work.
