Leaf Photosynthesis Postdoctoral Fellow (Climate & Ecosystems)-82708
:CE-Climate & Ecosystems
Berkeley Lab is Bringing Science Solutions to the World, and YOU can be
a part of it!
In the world of science, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory
(_Berkeley Lab_ <http://www.lbl.gov/>) is synonymous with "excellence."
That's why we hire the best - whether in research, finance or other
operations. This is a great opportunity to bring your top-notch skills
to bear in support of world-class scientific research that addresses
national and global challenges! Berkeley Lab is a renowned center of
scientific expertise in many facets of climate-related fundamental and
Berkeley Lab’s _Climate & Ecosystems Division_
opening for a Leaf Photosynthesis Postdoctoral Fellow to focus on
developing a theoretical understanding of acclimation of leaf
photosynthesis and respiration, and explore implications for global
photosynthesis and the carbon cycle, based at Berkeley Lab. We are
particularly interested in integrating theory of leaf resource
allocation with observations to develop parsimonious process-level
descriptions of the acclimation of photosynthesis and respiration, using
a variety of observations, and integrating discoveries into
state-of-the-art land surface models.
Focus on several groups of processes relevant to photosynthesis and
autotrophic respiration, including: nutrient and carbon
interactions, scaling from leaves to landscapes, ecosystem
demographics and land cover change.
Analyze and quantify uncertainty in feedbacks between the atmosphere
and terrestrial biosphere will be important components of the research.
Creation and analysis of a global database of plant traits
Statistical analysis of key traits
Development of first-principles theory underlying the governing
controls of specific traits
Formulation and testing of hypotheses
Model development and implementation
Presentation of results at scientific meetings
Publishing of results in scientific journals
PhD in plant physiology, ecology, or a related field
Proficient coding skills in at least one of: R, Matlab, Python, Fortran
Knowledge of ecophysiology and plant biochemistry
Experience working with data relevant to plant states, traits and rates
Ability to understand and use state-of-the-art land-surface
Both numerical and communication skills
Evidence of ability to publish results in relevant journals
Ability to work in an integrated team environment
The posting shall remain open until the position is filled.
This is a 1 year term appointment with the possibility of renewal
for up to 5 years based upon satisfactory job performance,
continuing availability of funds, and ongoing operational needs.
Salary will be predetermined based on postdoctoral step rates.
This position requires completion of a background check.
Berkeley Lab understands the postdoctoral experience in a research
environment is unique. We are committed to the growth and development of
early career researchers in pursuit of becoming next generation
scientists and engineers. Read about the_excellent postdoctoral
