Postdoctoral Researcher Position: Arctic-Boreal Ecosystem Modeling - Job 
# BRPD17

SUMMARY: The Woods Hole Research Center seeks a post-doctoral researcher 
with a focus on land surface modeling in boreal and arctic ecosystems. 
The successful candidate will work closely with the lead scientist and 
collaborators to assess how changes in climate, vegetation, 
disturbances, permafrost, and other properties have been impacting 
high-latitude carbon cycling using the Community Land Model (CLM). This 
position requires advanced Earth system modeling experience, including 
the ability to develop model code, conduct experiments, and manipulate 
large data sets.

Responsibilities: The successful candidate will:

  * Lead model development for photosynthesis, respiration, phenology,
    and permafrost modules.
  * Perform complex geoprocessing, including the application of
    benchmarks to multiple land surface models.
  * Conduct model experiments to understand changing seasonal CO2 fluxes
    in boreal forests and arctic tundra.
  * Analyze and integrate a variety of observational data, including
    remote sensing products, atmospheric CO2 metrics, and in situ fluxes.
  * Work in a highly collaborative environment to analyze, synthesize,
    and present results.

Qualifications and Experience:

  * Ph.D. degree in Environmental Sciences, Earth System Science,
    Ecology, or a related discipline, with a demonstrated ability to
    develop and apply land surface models (experience with CLM is
    preferred), conduct spatial analysis, and manage large data sets.
  * Excellent ability to use relevant computing resources and learn new
    skills as needed.
  * Knowledge of boreal and arctic ecosystems, vegetation dynamics, and
    carbon cycling.
  * Ability to think and work across disciplines and scales.
  * Excellent interpersonal and teamwork skills, and the ability to work
    in a highly collaborative environment.

Desired Start Date: June 2017 Application Deadline: March 15, 2017 
Salary Range: $50,000 to $55,000, with full benefit package, exempt 
position. Appointment: This is a two-year appointment, with the 
opportunity to extend.

Application Instructions: To apply, please send cover letter referencing 
“Post-Doctoral Researcher Job # BRPD17”, curriculum vitae, and contact 
information for three references to jobopenings at whrc.org 
<mailto:jobopenings at whrc.org>. Please type “BRPD17” in the subject line.
