Postdoctoral Researcher

The AgSensing Lab (ASL) in the Department of Food, Agricultural and Biological Engineering (https://agsensing.osu.edu/) at the Ohio State University is recruiting a Postdoc Researcher to work in the areas of UAS-based remote sensing and machine learning algorithms for sustainable agriculture.

The ASL focuses on understanding the role of agricultural practices on agronomic and environmental outcomes at field and landscape scales, using machine learning algorithms for remote sensing (i.e., satellite and UAS) data, and ecosystem models.

The candidate will be expected to develop novel machine learning algorithms for UAS-based data for several agricultural applications, publish research findings in international peer-reviewed journals, present research findings in conferences/meetings, and generate regular project update reports. The candidate will have an opportunity to work on projects that involve interdisciplinary team of researchers from various disciplines, such as agricultural engineering, computer science and electrical engineering, horticulture and crop science, and entomology.

The ideal candidates should have the following qualifications and experiences:

  • PhD degree in agricultural, computer and electrical, and/or civil engineering; environmental science; or other related disciplines.
  • Strong statistical and computer-programming (Python, R, OpenCV, MATLAB, C++, etc.) skills.
  • Experience in remote sensing, GIS, ecosystem modeling, precision agriculture technologies.
  • Demonstrated skills in scientific writing, publications, and communication.

The appointment is initially for one year and can be extended pending satisfactory performance. Salary is commensurate with candidate’s experience. The position will include full benefits as per OSU guidelines, including health care benefits.

To apply, please email CV to Dr. Sami Khanal at khanal.3@osu.edu.
