Postdoctoral Research Fellow - remote sensing and spatial ecology

The Earth Observation and Spatial Ecology Lab group within the Department of Earth, Environmental and Geographic Sciences at the University of British Columbia’s Okanagan campus, invites applications for a Postdoctoral Fellow for a 2 year position with a possible extension subject to progress of the project and availability of funds. Starting date June 1, 2023 or as agreed.

The candidate will work under the direction of Dr. Mathieu Bourbonnais and will lead the development of geospatial data products using remote sensed data describing land cover, connectivity, and biodiversity for the southern coast of British Columbia. We seek a highly-motivated scientist with the ability to define, direct, and complete a project. Working with an interdisciplinary team, the Postdoctoral Fellow will manage the design and delivery of a decision support tool based on a Biodiversity Atlas.

The Postdoctoral Fellow will collaborate with the core team to lead the development and design of the online atlas and the production of the mapping layers. Engagement with the atlas target audience will be essential and will include connecting with an already established network of Provincial, local government and First Nations planners, policy makers and organizations interested in incorporating natural values into their decision making.
