*Research position in carbon cycling research*

One postdoctoral research position is available in the area of climate 
controls on carbon cycling in the Florida coastal everglades. The 
post-doctoral scientist will assist with integrating research findings 
relevant  to  climate  controls  on carbon  sequestration  in  the  
Everglades,  and  analyzing and interpreting  data  sets  from  flux  
towers  and  remote sensing  platforms.  The  full-time postdoctoral 
position also entails collecting and synthesizing datasets from a 
variety of sources, including meteorological and hydrological stations, 
continuous ecosystem carbon exchanges at selected  sites  in  the 
Everglades,  and  remote  sensing  information.  Numerical modeling 
simulations are part of the research activities as well. Excellent 
computing and field facilities are available to carry out the research. 
The candidate is expected to interact with an interdisciplinary team of 
scientists involving ecologists, climate scientists, and hydrologists. 
The incumbent needs to have a PhD degree in ecosystem science, 
hydrology, biogeochemistry, atmospheric sciences, or a closely related 
field. Research experience with field studies involving flux towers and 
management of large data sets (exceeding several gigabytes) is highly 
desirable. Also, experience in developing and/or running numerical 
models designed to investigate climate and biogeochemical controls on 
ecosystem state and function is preferable. Excellent oral and written  
communication  skills  are  important  because  the incumbent  will  
contribute  to  peerreviewed publications and presentation of results at 
national conferences. The incumbent will be based  at  the  Everglades  
National  Park  office  in Homestead,  FL  and/or  Florida  
International University  in Miami,  FL.  The  salary  will  be  
competitive  and commensurate  with  relevant experience. To apply,
