[ES_JOBS_NET] Postdoc: ecosystem-atmosphere interactions, UCLA
useibt at ucla.edu
Tue Jun 14 00:42:32 MDT 2016
A postdoctoral position in measurements or modeling of ecosystem fluxes is
available in the Biosphere-Atmosphere Working Group at the Department of
Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences at UCLA. The group has ongoing
interdisciplinary projects on a range of topics, including tropical and
boreal forests under climate change, and shrubland ecohydrology, using
methods such as carbonyl sulfide (COS), solar-induced fluorescence, flux
chambers, eddy covariance, and modeling.
Candidates with research interests in biosphere-atmosphere interactions and
ecohydrology are encouraged to apply. Candidates should have a PhD in a
field related to Terrestrial Biogeochemistry, and demonstrated strength in
measurements or modeling of ecosystem or biosphere-atmosphere fluxes.
Candidates with focus on experimental or modeling work will be considered.
Experience with both aspects is considered beneficial, and strong
quantitative skills (using Python/Matlab etc) are preferred. Candidates
with focus on measurements are expected to contribute to field campaigns,
and quality control and analysis of field data. Candidates with focus on
modeling are expected to demonstrate experience of working with land
surface, biosphere or ecosystem models.
Significant opportunities exist for independent research and participation
in education and outreach depending on the candidate’s interests. The
appointment will be for one year with possibility of annual renewal. Please
submit your CV, a cover letter (2-page maximum) describing your research
goals and interests and specific qualifications for the position, one
relevant first-author publication, and contact information for 3
references, to Ulli Seibt (ulli at atmos.ucla.edu). Review of applications
will begin July 15.
