[ES_JOBS_NET] Postdoctoral Researcher: High latitude carbon exchange and atmospheric CO2 amplitude, Univ. of Michigan
christin at ucar.edu
Mon Apr 3 11:33:59 MDT 2017
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
- 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
- Strong publication record
- Experience with the NCAR Community Earth System Model (CESM) or GEOS-Chem
