*Postdoctoral Position at the University of New Mexico*

We are seeking a postdoctoral fellow to join a collaborative team from UNM,
conducting research on ecosystem-atmosphere exchange of carbon, water and
energy in semi-arid ecosystems.   Our group operates a network of nine eddy
covariance flux towers sites distributed across a 1500 m elevation gradient
in New Mexico that monitor ecosystem-atmosphere fluxes and associated plant
physiological and microbial processes.

We encourage individuals with a record of experience and research
productivity in one or more of the following areas to apply: (i) EC flux
tower or other land-surface flux datasets; (ii) physiological, ecosystem,
ecohydrology and/or landscape ecology with an emphasis on analyzing large
datasets; (iii) ecosystem modeling with emphasis on land surface models
such as the Community Land Model.  This position is available for one year
initially, with potential to renew annually for 3 years based on
performance.  This position requires an interest in exploring how fluxes in
these rapidly changing biomes are responding to disturbance and climate
change, a Ph.D in plant physiological ecology, ecosystem ecology,
biometeorology, biogeochemistry, or related field, demonstrated programming
expertise in Matlab and/or R, successful publication record and excellent
written and oral communication skills.

The University of New Mexico is an equal-opportunity employer and we
encourage underrepresented applicants.  The salary is highly competitive
and health care benefits are excellent.   Please send a cover letter with
qualifications and research interests, CV, and contact information of three
references by email to Dr. Marcy Litvak (mlitvak at unm.edu).  Position is
available beginning September 15, 2016 and is open until filled.
