Post-doctoral Research Scientist is needed to utilize remote sensing technology
to monitor, predict, and facilitate the control of infectious disease transmission.
Climate changes are now apparent across the globe and expected to grow. The observed
changes are causing a wide range of impacts – rising temperature, changing precipitation patterns, significant shift in ecosystems, and increased invasive species and disease pathogens.

As environmental and climatic factors have a profound role in initiating,
promoting and sustaining the transmission of infectious diseases, the objective of
the research is to develop empirical and theoretical models and techniques for
disease surveillance and control. This research includes aspects of ecological
modeling in climate change scenarios.

The position requires a recent Ph.D. (within 2 years from graduation) in Earth
sciences, physics, mathematics, computer sciences, theoretical ecology or engineering
with emphases on modeling diseases or biological systems. Familiarity with statistical methods (biostatistics desirable), numerical methods, artificial intelligence techniques, dynamic system modeling, common geospatial and GIS techniques, and in particular, with C, R, Matlab and ArcGIS are definite assets. U.S. citizenship or permanent residency is required.

Applicants should send a CV and names of three technical references to Dr. Lawrence
Klein, Group Manager, Wyle Information Systems, NASA Goddard Space Flight Center,
