Position Description:

The Nonproliferation and National Security Department has an opening for a Post Doc to assist with the development of remote sensing algorithms to monitor uranium mining activities.  The development of the algorithms will be based on new, high-quality laboratory spectral data that will be acquired as part of an international multi-institutional and multi-disciplinary effort. The position will require close collaboration with the partner institutions.  This position has a high level of interaction with an international and multicultural scientific community.

Essential Duties and Responsibilities:

  • Develop, test, and validate machine-learning image processing and analysis methods
  • Participate in a multi-institutional proof-of-concept study
  • Maintain spectral data base and upload data to community spectral data bases
  • Assist in and help coordinate experimental work to collect laboratory spectral data

The position is based at Brookhaven National Laboratory in Upton, New York (Long Island) and the selected candidate will work closely with project team members at Stony Brook University in Stony Brook, NY at Ben Gurion University of the Negev in Israel.
