Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position to participate on a 
NASA-funded project to understand seasonal carbon exchange in high 
latitude terrestrial ecosystems.  The position will be based at the 
University of Michigan in the Climate and Space Science and Engineering 
department, and the postdoctoral researcher will work with Professor 
Gretchen Keppel-Aleks.  The research will contribute to NASA's Arctic 
and Boreal Vulnerability Experiment (ABOVE), and the postdoctoral 
scholar will use remote sensing observations, atmospheric CO_2 
  observations, and coupled land-atmosphere models to understand the 
causes of amplification of the atmospheric CO_2 mean annual cycle over 
the last several decades.

Expertise is required in one or more of the following areas: atmospheric 
science, biogeochemistry, ecosystem science, or other aspects of 
environmental science and engineering.  Applicants should have 
demonstrated quantitative skills and a successful publication record. 
Programming experience with an atmospheric or Earth system model is 
required, with preference towards experience with the NCAR CESM or the 
GEOS-Chem atmospheric transport model.

The initial appointment is for one year, with the possibility for 
extension to a second year. Please send a C.V., a cover letter detailing 
current and future research interests, and the names of three references 
to Gretchen Keppel-Aleks (gkeppela at umich.edu <mailto:gkeppela at umich.edu>)

Review of applications will begin on April 14, 2017 and will be accepted 
until the position is filled.

The University of Michigan is an equal opportunity/affirmative action 

Required qualifications:
- Ph.D. in atmospheric science, biogeochemistry, ecosystem science, or 
other aspects of environmental science and engineering
- Programming experience with a global climate or atmospheric transport 
- Data visualization experience with NCL, Matlab, or Python

Desired qualifications:
- Strong publication record
- Experience with the NCAR Community Earth System Model (CESM) or GEOS-Chem
