*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.
• 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
• Ability to work collaboratively in a modeling group.
