    ***Call for Applications: Targeted Postdoctoral Fellowship in Spatial Biology** *Applications are currently being accepted for a targeted postdoctoral position in spatial biology in the Spatial Analysis Lab (SAL http://www.nimbios.org/SAL) at the National Institute for Mathematical and Biological Synthesis (NIMBioS) in collaboration with the Department of Ecology & Evolutionary Biology (EEB) at the University of Tennessee at Knoxville. This is a full-time, two-year position, with the potential for a limited-time-period renewal. Since 2009, NIMBioS has provided opportunities for postdoctoral scholarship at the interface between mathematics and the biological sciences. /Targeted Postdoctoral Fellowships at NIMBioS/ provide support for specific research questions on projects directed by faculty at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. The postdoctoral fellow will integrate remote sensing tools with publicly available data to answer interdisciplinary topics in Global Environmental Change (with possible foci in macroecology, physiology, and environmental sociology and economics). The fellow will be expected to participate in and contribute to NIMBioS activities. Technical remote sensing expertise is required, specifically experience in data-fusion techniques and in working with multiple types of remotely sensed data (multispectral + hyperspectral or multispectral + radar or multipectral + lidar, etc.). The most competitive candidates would have had experience collating, processing, and analyzing large datasets (e.g., biodiversity, physiology, climate, agriculture/land-use, economic trade) at the regional and/or global scale(s) and have published some of this work in leading peer-reviewed journals. The postdoctoral fellow will be mentored by Xingli Giam (EEB), Monica PapeÅŸ (EEB and SAL), and Kimberly Sheldon (EEB). Review of applications will begin 14 May 2018 and continue until the position is filled. Start date flexible, but not later than 31 August 2018. /For more information and the online application, visit http://www.nimbios.org/postdocs/targeted_postdocs.
