*Research Scientist Opportunity - **carbon cycling in thawing permafrost 

The University of New Hampshire has a Research Scientist II opening for 
a DOE-funded project. The successful candidate will be located in 
Berkeley, California at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory 
(LBNL), but will work with project members at multiple institutions on 
this multi-disciplinary project.  The project focuses on the carbon 
cycle in thawing permafrost peatlands, related plant and microbial 
processes, and climate feedbacks. The position calls for expertise in 
numerical methods for land-surface modeling; uncertainty quantification; 
parameter estimation; and microbial biochemistry, abiotic, and plant 
processes and interactions.

The successful candidate may focus on several relevant processes, 
questions, and scales, related to coupled hydrological and 
biogeochemical dynamics, nutrient and carbon interactions, plant and 
microbe interactions, and climate feedbacks. We are also interested in 
developing methods to evaluate, against observations, process-level and 
emergent model responses, and in developing model benchmarking approaches.

*Essential Qualifications:*

• Ph.D. in an appropriate discipline;

• Graduate Student or Postdoctoral research experience in ecosystem 
modeling, with specific modeling skills in coupled hydrological, 
biogeochemical, and atmospheric processes;

• Excellent written and oral communication skills, including scientific 
writing and presentation skills;

• Ability to develop, test, run, and analyze multi-scale coupled 
hydrological and biogeochemical cycle models;

• Good knowledge of site- to watershed-scale hydrological and 
biogeochemical dynamics;

• Ability to work collaboratively in a modeling group.
