Interested in Joining the BRG?

I am currently looking to hire 3 postdoctoral fellows:

  • Air pollution measurements, modeling, and impacts -- Do you have a physical science background in climate and/or chemical transport modeling and/or aerosol measurements? We have a set of projects spanning lab measurements, field campaigns, and data work launching this year and are looking for a postdoctoral researcher to help lead these efforts. Potential candidates should contact me by email, and include a CV and statement of research interests (both independent and collaborative).  

  • Hydrology, land cover, and remote sensing -- We are looking for someone to work on remote sensing of irrigation and groundwater extraction, as well as GIS-based hydrological modeling. Potential candidates should contact me by email, and include a CV and statement of research interests (both independent and collaborative). 

  • US-Mexico border region "political ecology" -- Does the political border affect ecological health and ecosystem services? We are looking for a Mexican scholar with GIS and remote sensing experience to join our Big Pixel Initiative team, building and applying Google Earth Engine-based tools to the San Diego-Tijuana border region. Potential candidates should apply here via the Center for US-Mexican Studies (US-Mex).

Beyond the above positions, I am always interested in recruiting talented postdocs, graduate, and undergraduate students from different disciplines. Postdoctoral candidates with overlapping interests not related to the above positions should also contact me, and consult UC San Diego's Office of Postdoctoral Affairs for information on appointments and funding sources. Graduate students need to be admitted to a program directly through the university; information on programs and application requirements can be accessed through UC San Diego's Graduate Division. Current UC San Diego PhD students interested in pursuing a 1-year exploration of the policy implications of their work may be interested in the GPS Science Policy Fellows Program. UC San Diego undergraduates and masters students can join the group for academic credit through ENG199, SIO199, and IRGN199/499 (Independent Study) courses. ESYS students interested in pursing a senior project should contact me in the late spring of junior year with a brief proposal. Funded research opportunities at all levels are available through the Frontiers of Innovation Scholars Program, and for undergraduates through the Summer Research Program, McNair Program, UC Scholars Program, CAMP, and through sources listed on UC San Diego's AcademicWorks site.
