The Center for Geospatial Analysis and the Government Department are pleased to announce a new postdoctoral fellowship, supported by the Mellon teach-scholar training program. This program offers a unique opportunity to collaborate with the William and Mary faculty sponsors on research, while also receiving mentorship in multiple aspects of educational and professional development. We invite applications for a two-year postdoctoral fellowship in Remote Sensing and International Development. The selected postdoctoral fellow will collaborate with faculty mentors Stuart Hamilton and Mark Buntaine on a project that examines how environmental and development aid influence land use and land cover change.
In addition to collaborating with the faculty sponsors on the research project, the postdoctoral fellow will learn how to mentor undergraduates in meaningful research experiences, while also developing and teaching two undergraduate courses during the two years of the fellowship. We are particularly interested in receiving applications from early-career scientists who would like to maintain a balance between high quality research and teaching excellence in their continuing careers. The candidate should have a Ph.D in Geography, Government, or a related field.
The postdoctoral fellow will receive an annual stipend of $45,000 plus benefits and a research/teaching/professional development budget of at least $10k per annum-- this budget includes resources for travel and participation at conferences. The appointment is for two years, commencing in the Fall of 2012.
The college conducts background checks on applicants for employment.
