Postdoctoral Position in Data Science, Machine Learning and Climate: PRISM Cooperative Institute (NSF HDR)

 

 

The natural-human world is characterized by highly interconnected systems, in which a single discipline is not equipped to identify broader signs of systemic risk and mitigation targets. In particular, what risks in agriculture, ecology, energy, finance and hydrology are heightened by climate variability and change? Recent advances in computing and data science, and the data revolution in each of these domains have now provided a means to address these questions.

 

The PRISM Cooperative Institute, jointly established by Cornell University and nine other institutions (see: sites.google.com/view/prism-prj ) including Columbia University as part of the NSF funded Harnessing the Data Revolution (HDR) Big Idea activity, seeks exceptional candidates for a postdoctoral research position in Data Science and Machine Learning at Cornell University. Appointments are renewable up to a total period of two years. The target start date is August 1, 2020, but positions may be filled immediately. Applicants should have completed their PhD by the time of their appointment. 

 

A Cornell appointed postdoc will be mentored by David S. Matteson (matteson@cornell.edu), with a courtesy appointment at Columbia University's International Research Institute for Climate and Society (IRI) in collaboration with Remi Cousin. Research experience in risk analytics, anomaly detection, network analysis, time series analysis, machine learning, and/or spatiotempotal data integration is required. Some background or interest in climate science/impacts would be an advantage. All applicants must submit a cover letter, a curriculum vitae including a list of publications, research and teaching statements, and arrange to have two reference letters submitted electronically. Up to two relevant research publications may also be submitted. Application materials must be submitted at: https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/15857

 

Evaluation of applicants will begin February 15, 2020 and continue until the position is filled.
