Postdoctoral position at APL-UW, coastal SAR remote sensing


The Applied Physics Laboratory of the University of Washington invites applications for a postdoctoral researcher in remote sensing and coastal oceanography as part of an ONR funded project to measure waves, currents, and bathymetry from spaceborne SAR (synthetic aperture radar). The postdoc will use SAR data to implement and investigate the accuracy of wave, current, and bathymetry retrieval algorithms for use in the nearshore (inner shelf through the surf zone). This project will focus on data retrieved from rocky coasts where complex shorelines and bathymetry strongly affect the wave field and currents.

We strive to promote greater diversity among applicants than is currently found in our field, and we strongly encourage applications from all groups that are underrepresented in the remote sensing and coastal oceanography research communities.
