Scientist: Hydrologic Research and Applications aided by Earth-orbiting Satellites

Terrestrial Hydrology Group, Jet Propulsion Lab (JPL), Pasadena, California, USA
Deadline: Nov 16, 2020

You will work as a full-time scientist in a dynamic team environment responsible for developing and leading a unique portfolio of scientific research and applied sciences activities in your hydrologic and remote sensing field of expertise, while collaborating with the existing expertise at JPL including its Terrestrial Hydrology group.

You will contribute to maximizing the science return of current and future NASA missions, such as GRACE-FO, SMAP, ECOSTRESS, SWOT and NISAR, and imagining the next generation of satellites transforming the way we monitor and learn about the hydrological cycle.

Requirements Include:

  • PhD in hydrology or a related science or technical subject area with at least 2 years of post-degree experience
  • Demonstrated record of peer-reviewed publications related to science and applications for hydrology and remote sensing of the terrestrial water cycle

Preferences Include:

  • Advanced knowledge of methodologies used for improving science and its applications in hydrology and remote sensing, including but not limited to modeling approaches, observational techniques (in situ and remote), and their combination in the form of scientific analyses, data assimilation, machine learning, etc.
