Cluster Hire in Remote Sensing Applications and Instrument Development at Northern Arizona University
Northern Arizona University is initiating a cluster hire of multiple faculty positions (including tenure-track and research-track positions) to build on NAU’s existing multidisciplinary strengths in remote sensing analysis that are critical components of many of its outstanding educational and research programs. The goal of this initiative is to increase NAU’s strength in the areas of instrument and application development to advance new techniques and instruments that address timely and critically important scientific questions across disciplines. Successful candidates will help to build remote-sensing capacity in existing areas of strength at NAU in engineering and the natural & social sciences, and/or will help to build new opportunities in novel disciplines. New hires will support the development of a research center focused on remote sensing. Areas of particular interest include, but are not limited to:
- Space-based remote sensing of Earth and other planetary bodies.
- Terrestrial, near-surface remote sensing (e.g., UAVs, tower- or tripod-mounted devices, hand-held instruments, wearable devices).
- Software & analysis methods (e.g., autonomous devices, machine learning & AI applied to remote devices).
- Instrument design and testing, including integration of off-the-shelf components for novel applications.
