Postdoc Opportunity: The Science of Climate and Environmental Change

South University of Science and Technology of China (SUSTech)

Shenzhen, China

School of Environmental Science and Engineering

We are seeking an outstanding postdoctoral researcher who can lead 
research projects that contribute to a better understanding of the 
science of climate and environmental change.

We are particularly interested in exploring climate consequences of 
surface changes (e.g., ecosystem change, land use change). We are also 
interested in extending science related to human-environment interaction 
assessment (e.g., effect of human activity on water and energy 
resources). The successful candidate will play a major role in planning 
and executing these investigations, working in a diverse group that will 
include modelers, analysts, and field researchers.

Specific research area sought includes:

Impact of ecosystem change on global carbon cycle

Carbon-climate interaction and/or Climate-ecosystem interaction

Climate change and phenology

Impacts of human-mediated land surface change (urbanization or 
agriculture) on climate change

Climate change impact on energy-use

Typically, numerical models (e.g., ecosystem model, land surface model, 
regional/global climate model, and Earth system model) are our primary 
tool, but we would be open to using other tools such as satellite remote 
sensing technique. In collaboration with many start-up companies in 
Shenzhen, we are going to develop “cheap” and “high-tech” measurement 
for environmental monitoring from local- to global-scale.

Required Qualifications:

PhD in atmospheric science, ecology, forest science, Earth system 
science, applied mathematics, environmental science/engineering or other 
relevant discipline

Strong quantitative foundation in statistics or numerical modeling

Demonstrated ability to design, conduct, and publish research related to 
climate-ecosystem interactions, climate/environmental change

Excellent written and oral communication skills

Programming experience

The position starts immediately. This is a 1 year term appointment with 
the possibility of renewal for up to 3 years based upon satisfactory job 
performance, continuing availability of funds, and ongoing operational 
needs. Salary for postdoctoral positions depends on years of experience
