Assistant Professor in Geodesy and Remote Sensing (Tenure-track), University of Colorado at Boulder

Assistant Professor in Geodesy and Remote Sensing (Tenure-track)

The Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences (CIRES,, an interdisciplinary research institute within
the University of Colorado Boulder, invites applications for a
tenure-track faculty member at the Assistant Professor level
specializing in the areas of geodesy and remote sensing of Earth. The
position is rostered in CIRES, with tenure and teaching responsibilities
in a relevant academic department including, but not limited to,
Geological Sciences, Aerospace Engineering Sciences, Physics, or Geography.

We are seeking a multidisciplinary Earth scientist who uses advanced
geodetic and remote sensing techniques to study surface and subsurface
processes of the Earth. It is anticipated that the successful candidate
will have research interests in one or more areas related to
earth-surface change detection of environmental processes. Techniques
might include terrestrial, airborne, or satellite LiDAR, radar
altimetry, GPS, optically sensed image coregistration, InSAR, or other
methods. Candidates whose expertise complements that of existing CIRES
faculty and researchers in cryospheric processes, natural hazards,
tectonics, geomorphology, or geohydrology are particularly encouraged.
Potential synergies in CIRES, on campus, and from the larger Boulder
community include the Earth Science and Observation Center (ESOC,; the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC;, Western Water Assessment (, UNAVCO, and
NOAA. The successful candidate will be expected to maintain an active,
externally funded research program, supervise graduate students, and
teach at both undergraduate and graduate levels.
