Crop modeling postdoctoral position at NCAR
National Center for Atmospheric Research
Application deadline: May 16, 2015
The Terrestrial Science Section (TSS) at the National Center for
Atmospheric Research (NCAR) in Boulder, Colorado, seeks a postdoctoral
researcher in crop modeling to interact with climate modelers, land use
modelers, and economic modelers to carry out interdisciplinary research
on the effects of climate, CO2, and agricultural management on crop
yields and its societal consequences. Key functions in this position are
to (1) conduct research on crop modeling within the Community Land Model
(CLM) as part of the Community Earth System Model (CESM) and its
application to assessment of climate change impacts on agriculture; and
(2) use a combination of model experiments and observational data to
develop, validate, and apply the CLM-crop model.
The successful applicant will join an interdisciplinary research section
at NCAR that includes groups working on both the role of the terrestrial
biosphere in the climate system and interactions between climate and
section has an organizational home within the Climate and Global
Dynamics Laboratory (CGD) and contributes to NCAR’s status as a
world-leading climate modeling center.
The position requires expertise in crop modeling, particularly in the
context of large-scale land surface modeling; experience working with
land surface and climate models; expertise working with large
geophysical data sets, including climate model output; and proficiency
writing scientific codes, especially in Fortran, with experience working
in a UNIX environment.
This is a full-time two-year term position. For a detailed job
