*Climate Interaction Postdoctoral Fellow (Climate & Ecosystems) - 82591*
*Organization: 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 (LBNL) is
synonymous with "excellence." That's why we hire the best - whether in
research, science or 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!

*Position Summary:*
Berkeley Lab’s Climate & Ecosystems Division has an opening for a Climate
Interaction Postdoctoral Fellow. This position is for a scientist with
expertise in analyzing terrestrial biogeochemical and hydrological
processes and their climate interactions, with a focus on Earth System
Models (ESMs). The position offers an excellent environment for working
with a highly skilled interdisciplinary team. You will also have
opportunities to collaborate with researchers across our multi-institution
DOE-funded project. We are interested in developing methods to evaluate,
against observations, process-level and emergent ESM responses that affect
climate, and to standardize the benchmarking approaches for broader
community use. Analyzing and quantifying uncertainty in feedbacks between
the atmosphere and terrestrial biosphere will be important components of
the research.

*What You Will Do:*
• Develop methods to benchmark land models against a diverse range of
• Work in an integrated team environment.
• Focus on several groups of biogeochemical and climate feedback processes.

*What Is Required:*
• Recently PhD graduate.
• Understanding and use of state-of-the-art land-surface biogeochemical
• Ability to develop representations of complex inter-related terrestrial
ecosystem processes suitable for ESMs.
• Ability to develop and use coupled atmosphere and land-surface models to
characterize feedbacks.
• Ability to develop methods to benchmark land models against a diverse
range of observations.

The posting shall remain open until the position is filled.

*Notes: *
• 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 benefits at Berkeley
