Hi all,

We are hiring a part-time, 20h/week, $20/hour position in sensor development for urban flooding for the semester.

The Floodsense project is investigating the impact of urban street flooding on communities in Brooklyn. The project aims to develop a longitudinally deployed fleet of advanced remote sensors for mounting in flood-prone communities to detect the depth and profile of flood events.

We are seeking a motivated Masters student with experience in hardware and embedded software development to build upon our current flood sensor prototype and to work with our various community stakeholders to identify and deploy sensors at strategic urban locations. The candidate will also work on the analysis of the data generated by these deployed sensors including other related datasets, for the identification of pre-flooding indicators and patterns in flood dissipation across the sensor network.

Application and more details are here, full post copied below.

The team encourages applications from members of communities traditionally underrepresented in computer science and engineering research, including women, BIPOC and LGBTQ+.

Please share with your networks, and feel free to reach out with any questions.

Elizabeth // Floodsense Team
