A Post-doctoral Position in Ecosystem Modeling of Biogeochemical Processes

A post-doctoral position is available in the department of biological
sciences at the University of Texas at El Paso (www.utep.edu). Candidates
should have a Ph.D. in Biology, Ecology, Climate science, Earth system
science, or a related field, and demonstrated strength in modeling ecosystem
and/or biosphere-atmosphere interactions. Demonstrated experience of working
with land surface models (such as CLM) to quantify terrestrial feedbacks to
the climate system is considered strongly beneficial. The successful
applicant should have experience to conduct research on the impacts of
global change on ecosystem function and land surface fluxes of trace gases
(carbon dioxide, methane, and nitrous oxide), hydrological processes, or
microbial biogeochemistry. Experience in modeling soil biogeochemical
processes and the programming ability with FORTRAN and/or C++ are desirable.
The successful candidate will have opportunities to work with a group of
interdisciplinary scientists in the University of Texas at El Paso and other
institutes in US and China. The position will be available from September,
2014 or as soon as possible thereafter. The position is for 2+ years with a
competitive annual salary of >$45K.

To apply for this position, send the following information in one PDF file
