Hyperspectral Remote Sensing Scientist
KBR is supporting the USGS EROS Technical Support Services Contract (TSSC) Science Division by building a team of scientists to serve a new research and development study that seeks to characterize and evaluate hyperspectral imaging (HSI) capabilities with the goal of informing future Landsat operational mission architecture concepts.
There are leadership and support staff roles available on this emerging project, so this position is open to entry level and experienced science candidates.
KBR (https://www.kbr.com/en) , headquartered in Houston, Texas, is the primary contractor to the USGS for performing work at the Earth Resources Observation and Science (EROS (https://www.usgs.gov/centers/eros) ) Center near Sioux Falls, SD (http://www.siouxfalls.org) . Sioux Falls residents enjoy small town friendliness in a big town atmosphere, year-long outdoor recreation, professional sports and entertainment events, and no state income tax.
Education : B.S., M.S, or PhD in a related Science
Experience : 0-10 years
The TSSC team will work cross-functionally to apply fundamental remote sensing expertise to the investigation of the utility of hyperspectral imagery across a range of science topics. Primary activities will focus on available data sets, science software development, and design of actionable use cases. Literature-based research and community interaction will acquaint Science staff with relevant data sets and current methodologies, leading to the discovery, acquisition, assessment, characterization, and documentation of existing imaging spectroscopy data sets. Science software will be developed to enable data manipulation, visualization, analysis, and generation of product derivatives. Knowledge gained will inform formulation of science use cases that will guide requirements for future product development and engineering capabilities. Output results from Science investigations will be submitted for journal publication and presentation as appropriate, as well as shared with Project partners through the Project’s Communications element.
