The artificial light at night Postdoctoral Researcher will be responsible for processing, analyzing, and synthesizing radar, community science, and remote sensing data through peer reviewed publication on the impacts of artificial light on migration bird land use and flight patterns. The post-doc will work closely with PI Horton (CSU) and Co-I Henebry (Michigan State University).
Lead the primary organization, processing, and integration of weather surveillance radar and community science data. Facilitate the linkage of these data layers with remote sensing products in an effort to characterize land-use (and airspace use) patterns of migratory birds – particularly in regard to artificial light pollution. The post-doc will focus on urban centers (~120) from the Central Flyway of the United States.
