Subject: Postdoc: dryland ecohydrology & vegetation dynamics

We are seeking a postdoctoral researcher to study the ecohydrology of
dryland ecosystems. The project will utilize a water balance simulation
model to answer questions about plant community and ecosystem-scale water=

dynamics of grassland, shrubland and dryland forest ecosystems in respons=
to altered disturbance regimes and climate conditions across western Nort=
America. This position will be a part of a larger collaborative research
team led by the USGS Southwest Biological Science Center (Flagstaff, AZ) =
the University of Wyoming (Laramie, WY.). The position will be located in=

Flagstaff. This work is funded by the U.S. Geological Survey and the U.S.=

Forest Service and will build upon on regional datasets of driving and
response variables.=20=20

The ideal candidate will have a Ph.D. in ecology, ecohydrology, ecosystem=

ecology, hydrology, or a closely related field, as well as a strong work
ethic, demonstrated quantitative capabilities, a record of publication an=
leadership, and a proven ability to work both collaboratively and
independently.  A strong quantitative and programming background, interes=
and experience in working with simulation models, and familiarity with R,=
