***Call for Applications: Targeted Postdoctoral Fellowship in Spatial 

*Applications are currently being accepted for a targeted postdoctoral 
position in spatial biology in the Spatial Analysis Lab (SAL 
http://www.nimbios.org/SAL) at the National Institute for Mathematical 
and Biological Synthesis (NIMBioS) in collaboration with the Department 
of Ecology & Evolutionary Biology (EEB) at the University of Tennessee 
at Knoxville. This is a full-time, two-year position, with the potential 
for a limited-time-period renewal.

Since 2009, NIMBioS has provided opportunities for postdoctoral 
scholarship at the interface between mathematics and the biological 
sciences. /Targeted Postdoctoral Fellowships at NIMBioS/ provide support 
for specific research questions on projects directed by faculty at the 
University of Tennessee, Knoxville.

The postdoctoral fellow will integrate remote sensing tools with 
publicly available data to answer interdisciplinary topics in Global 
Environmental Change (with possible foci in macroecology, physiology, 
and environmental sociology and economics). The fellow will be expected 
to participate in and contribute to NIMBioS activities. Technical remote 
sensing expertise is required, specifically experience in data-fusion 
techniques and in working with multiple types of remotely sensed data 
(multispectral + hyperspectral or multispectral + radar or multipectral 
+ lidar, etc.). The most competitive candidates would have had 
experience collating, processing, and analyzing large datasets (e.g., 
biodiversity, physiology, climate, agriculture/land-use, economic trade) 
at the regional and/or global scale(s) and have published some of this 
work in leading peer-reviewed journals. The postdoctoral fellow will be 
mentored by Xingli Giam (EEB), Monica Papeş (EEB and SAL), and Kimberly 
Sheldon (EEB).

Review of applications will begin 14 May 2018 and continue until the 
position is filled. Start date flexible, but not later than 31 August 2018.
