Subject: Postdoc in forest canopy structure-carbon cycling relationships

Postdoc in forest canopy structure-carbon cycling relationships: Our team=
 seeks a postdoctoral=20
associate, preferably starting January 2016 but with some flexibility, to=
 investigate how and why=20
temperate forest canopy structure affects carbon storage and cycling. The=
 NSF-supported project will=20
use the National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON; http://www.neoninc=
.org/) to evaluate=20
whether canopy structural complexity -- the spatial variability in leaf a=
rrangement within a canopy --=20
is a generalized predictor of forest carbon storage within and across sit=
es varying in physical=20
structure, species composition and diversity, and climate. The position r=
equires travel during the field=20
season to temperate forest NEON sites in the Eastern US. The postdoctoral=
 associate will interact=20
extensively with NEON staff and researchers, participate in a research ne=
twork advancing ecological=20
applications of lidar, have generous support for meeting and site travel,=
 assume a leadership role in=20
publishing project results, and gain teaching experience as instructor of=
 record of a 1-credit seminar=20

Bob Fahey (U of=20
Connecticut), and Brady Hardiman (Purdue U), and students, and hosted by =
(http://www.vcu.edu/) in Richmond, VA. Salary is ~$41K annually, with ful=
l benefits including=20
retirement and medical insurance. For more information contact Chris Goug=
