PostDoc position: Machine Learning for understanding Earth System processes

Data-cube enthusiasts, I am looking for a PostDoc to work with us on Machine Learning for understanding Earth System processes. We are a newly established Research Center for Earth System Research at Leipzig University, Germany and generally work on topics related to climate and biodiversity research. In this project we will focus on explainable AI methods for detecting anomalies in high-dimensional Earth system time series data. Specifically, we aim to detect the signatures of climate extreme events in forest ecosystems and think about forecasting these dynamics. For getting an intuition of the type of data we are exploring see this plot from our paper on Earth system data cubes (Mahecha et al. 2020, Earth System Dynamics, 11, 201-234):

And yes, familiarity with the pangeo ecosystem would be highly valuable! The full job description can be found here: Job in Leipzig, Germany . Looking forward to applications from the pangeo community! Miguel Mahecha
