We seek a Research Assistant/Research Associate to lead technical analyses to support adaptation decision making for communities impacted by permafrost thaw in Alaska.

This position requires skills for processing and analyzing geospatial datasets and assessing future landscape change using remote sensing, expert observation, and modeling tools (e.g., Alaska Thermokarst Model). The selected candidate will work within a highly collaborative team of Arctic modelers, scientists, policy experts, and communications specialists for the Permafrost Pathways project.
