A doctorate in hand is required for hiring. This position will be with a team at the Jornada that uses big data-model integration, geospatial analytics, spatio-temporal modeling, long-term data, and novel software tool development AI to aid ecological problem-solving.
This position will integrate large and diverse datasets to analyze and interpret complex interactions leading to non-linear dynamics across heterogenous landscapes. Since these dynamics occur over multiple spatial and temporal scales with both biotic and abiotic components, datasets will come from a variety of disciplines and sources, e.
Tasks will include developing and applying novel computational and statistical approaches for analysis and visualization of these datasets through time and space.

MSc Landscape Ecology with Geographical Information Systems
Applicants with quantitative and computational backgrounds in landscape or ecosystem ecology, geography, or computer sciences are strongly encouraged to apply. As well as providing wildlife habitat and holding important ecological values, outdoor spaces are places where people recreate. This 2-year applied research project will focus on identifying and mapping where people recreate in the Yellowstone to Yukon region and compiling and modeling the ecological impacts of different types and intensities of recreational use.

Second year of funding contingent upon successful progress in year 1. An interest and background in recreation or road ecology is an asset, as are experience conducting and communicating landscape-level, collaborative research to inform planning. Our group conducts landscape studies of natural and working lands, in particular coastal and inland wetlands and rangelands. We quantify ecosystem benefits, find areas vulnerable to future change, and identify potential for climate mitigation and resilience. We emphasize the use of open data and open source software to aid tool development for decision makers.
Currently we have multiple projects on wetland sustainability and ecosystem services, habitat modeling, land use change and water supply, and large-scale riparian vegetation mapping.
Landscape ecology, biogeography, and GIS methods
We are seeking a talented and motivated spatial data scientist with experience in spatial data analysis and spatial statistics, programming, and management of large datasets. The scientist should also have a background in ecology or natural resources, with a preference for experience in wetland, estuarine, or watershed science. Programming skills python, R, and database management are necessary. Ability to optimize processing of large datasets such as lidar and raster-based model outputs with cloud computing is highly desirable.
Experience with remote sensing methods such as image classification is also beneficial. Primary tasks will include 1 analysis and visualization of model outputs from integrated land use and hydrological models for the Central Valley of California, 2 writing code to automate and optimize processing of satellite images and lidar datasets, 3 error analysis for remote sensing products, 4 coastal ecosystem habitat modeling. There will be opportunity to seek grant funding to develop related, independent research. This position with be either a contract hire or postdoctoral researcher hire, dependent upon educational level attained.
Approximate start date is late August The Utah Forest Institute at Utah State University is seeking applications for a full-time technical analyst to start between April 1st and May 31st, Applications will be considered until the position is filled. The mission of the Utah Forest Institute is to improve fire outcomes with respect to fire severity, recovery, and provision of ecosystem services. The fire regime of Utah has not yet been fully characterized, making long-term planning and management of fire more difficult. We seek to increase scientific understanding of fire in Utah, with a focus on identifying areas where management can make a difference.
The Utah Fire Atlas will help move discussions of fire in Utah to a more quantitative footing. Jim Lutz. The senior technical analyst will be responsible for the coordination, development, and maintenance of the Utah Fire Atlas, and subsequent related analyses. While the dataset is in development, the core duties of the position are to assign and supervise the work of hourly technicians approx. The position therefore requires interest and aptitude in the following areas: project planning, supervising and training technicians, and data analysis. Following the completion of the satellite-derived dataset, the core duties of the senior technical analyst will shift towards maintaining the dataset, planning field data validation campaigns in Utah , improving fuel models for Utah forest types, analyzing data for scientific publications, and communicating with state, federal, and private land managers.
There is some flexibility in the activities of the senior technical analyst after these core duties are met e. Logan is part of the larger Cache Valley, flanked by the Wellsville and Bear River mountain ranges, and is located roughly 80 miles northeast of Salt Lake City.

Lavers, R. Harrison, R. Gulinck, O. Walpot, P. Wood, G. Heywood, S. MacMillan, P. Furley, R. Gurnell, P. Edwards, C. Johnston, J. Pastor, R. Haines-Young, M. Summary Landscape ecology focuses on the way in which a range of processes interact, and provides a framework to facilitate the understanding of human impact on the environment and the development of suitable management strategies. This book describes some of the developments and applications of geographic information systems GIS - including aerial photographic and satellite remote sensing to landscape ecology.
This includes applications to vegetation, animals and hydrology at a variety of different scales. Contributions from an international group of researchers who have used GIS in different ways to monitor, map and model changes in our environment at the landscape level. This collection of papers demonstrates the value of GIS technology through its operational applications to landscape ecology.
It is an introduction to a rapidly developing area of applying new technologies. Subject Landscape ecology. Geographic information systems. Bibliographic information.
