The Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory - Alaska Research Office (CRREL-AKRO) team is looking for a research statistician with a focus in environmental sciences to assist with a variety of projects on statistical analyses of Arctic ecosystem processes. Projects will likely include assessing data trends in soil, water, and snow characteristics related to permafrost thaw and comparing time-series datasets of soil moisture with other soil variables across scales. The information spans highly-controlled laboratory-based measurements, field data collections, and satellite imagery, therefore knowledge of statistical tools, GIS, machine-learning, image-processing, and ability to program are desirable skills. This position will involve remote Arctic field work and travel, if the candidate desires.
