    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.

    2. Must also have demonstrated experience publishing scientific papers in the areas of ecology, quantitative ecology, remote sensing, or movement ecology.
    3. Demonstrated competency in statistical modeling, proficiency in R coding, extensive experience in remote sensing, and ability to handle and organize large datasets.


    1. Experience working with weather surveillance radar data and processing.
    2. Experience working with Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) reflectance imagery.
    3. Experience in movement ecology with an emphasis in bird ecology.
    4. Demonstrated experience working in collaborative research settings.
