The Department of Atmospheric, Oceanic and Space Sciences (AOSS) at the 
University of Michigan is seeking a qualified Postdoctoral Researcher. 
The candidate will work with Dr. Gretchen Keppel-Aleks in the study of 
climate-carbon cycle interactions. The lab uses a range of tools, 
including archived observations, ground-based remote sensing data, Earth 
system models, and simple analytic models to understand the global 
carbon cycle.

The selected individual will have the opportunity to choose between 
projects involving (1) decadal to century scale prediction of 
carbon-climate feedbacks constrained by present day variations in 
atmospheric CO2 or (2) analysis of in situ and remote sensing 
observations to quantify the impact of climate and atmospheric 
composition on carbon fluxes.

A PhD degree in atmospheric science, or a closely related field, is 
required. Competence and demonstrated experience with computer modeling 
and programming languages (e.g., Unix/Linux, Fortran, and data 
analysis/visualization software such as MATLAB or Python) is also 
expected. Additional experience with remotely sensed data, field 
work/instrumentation, and/or Earth system modeling would be considered 

Interested applicants are encouraged to contact Dr. Keppel-Aleks 
(gkeppela at umich.edu).  Additional information about the lab group can be 
found at http://aoss-research.engin.umich.edu/faculty/keppel-aleks/ . 
Applications should include a cover letter describing your interest in 
the position, experience, and availability. In addition, please submit a 
CV and the name, title and affiliation, and contact information for 
three professional references.

The initial appointment will be for a period of one year, with the 
option for renewal based on performance and funding availability.

The University of Michigan is an equal opportunity/affirmative action
