*Postdoctoral Position in carbon, water, energy cycling in semi-arid biomes
(University of New Mexico)*

We are seeking a postdoc to join a collaborative team at UNM, conducting
research on ecosystem-atmosphere exchange of carbon, water and energy in
semi-arid ecosystems.   Our group operates a network of nine eddy
covariance flux towers sites distributed across a 1500 m elevation gradient
in New Mexico that monitor ecosystem-atmosphere fluxes and associated plant
physiological and microbial processes.

Applicants with a strong background in working with (i) EC flux tower or
other land-surface flux datasets; (ii) physiological, ecosystem,
ecohydrology and/or landscape ecology with an emphasis on analyzing large
datasets; (iii) land surface models such as the Community Land Model will
be given high priority.  This position is available for one year initially,
with potential to renew annually for 2 additional years based on
performance.  This position requires:

1)     a Ph.D in ecosystem ecology, biometeorology, biogeochemistry, or
fields related to environmental studies.

2)     demonstrated experience in a range of computer coding languages, but
particularly Matlab.

3)     successful publication record

4)     excellent written and oral communication skills

5)     an interest in exploring how carbon, water and energy fluxes in
semi-arid biomes are responding to drought, mortality and other
disturbances at different spatial and temporal scales

The University of New Mexico is an equal-opportunity employer and we
encourage underrepresented applicants.  The salary is $50,000/yr with good
health care and other benefits.   Please send a cover letter with
qualifications and research interests, CV, and contact information of three
references by email to Dr. Marcy Litvak (mlitvak at unm.edu).  Position is
available beginning September 1, 2017 and is open until filled.
