Postdoctoral Research Associate - Terrestrial Ecosystems Modeling and 
Analysis / NB50601782

  A postdoctoral position is available in the Environmental Sciences 
Division (ESD) and Climate Change Science Institute (CCSI) at Oak Ridge 
National Laboratory (ORNL). The successful candidate will be expected to 
use multiple estimates from observed vegetation and soil fluxes and 
states to constrain and improve the GPP and carbon allocation scheme in 
the land component of DOE-sponsored Accelerated Climate Modeling for 
Energy (ACME Land Model - ALM). The UQ methodology will be employed to 
identify and reduce Various uncertainties associated with the ALM 
structure, internal parameters and External drivers. With the updated 
ALM together with other modeling efforts and experimental campaigns from 
the DOE NGEE-Tropics project, the postdoctoral Candidate will also be 
responsible for investigating the response mechanisms of tropical 
rainforests to droughts and ENSO events.

The selected candidate will have one or more of the following attributes:

(a) a background in land surface model simulation, Evaluation and 

(b) strong experience in assembling and diagnosing large Models and 
observational datasets;

(c) and strong programing skills in at least one of Fortran, R, Matlab, 
NCL or Python. The applicant should have a Ph.D. in an Appropriate field 
(e.g., Atmospheric Science, Ecology, Geography or related area) at The 
time of appointment.

The candidate should also have a strong interest in collaborative 
research with a team of modelers and experimentalists. For more 
information about this position, please contact Dr. Jiafu Mao
