Subject: [Forsoils] Postdoctoral Research Associate-Fire Frequency and Soil
Carbon Dynamics in the Boreal Forest
To: "forsoils at u.washington.edu" <forsoils at u.washington.edu>

The Forest Ecosystem Science laboratory at the University of Florida seeks
a postdoctoral research associate to work on an NSF-funded project
examining how increased fire frequency in Alaskan boreal forests affects
vegetation dynamics and ecosystem carbon cycling. The postdoctoral
researcher will lead efforts to estimate soil CO2 efflux, linking these
estimates to changes in vegetation and soil thaw created by repeat
burning.  The researcher will join a multidisciplinary (remote sensing,
modeling of ecosystem process and permafrost dynamics), with collaborators
at multiple institutions (Portland State, Universities of Alaska and
Idaho). The postdoctoral research associate will assist in connecting field
observations of soil and vegetation C dyamics to the ecosystem process
model LANDIS-II.

Interested candidates should feel comfortable working in remote locations
with a team of colleagues, and there will be some strenuous fieldwork. The
researcher will spend the majority of the 2018 and 2019 summer in Alaska,
and winters at the University of Florida in Gainesville.  Ideal candidates
would be available at some point in the spring of 2018, preferably in
January. The candidate will have a PhD in biology, soil science, ecology,
forestry, or environmental science. The position is available for 2-3
years, with the 3rd year contingent on satisfactory progress toward project

Gainesville is a bike friendly community, with many outdoor recreational
opportunities, and is ~1.5 hours from the Gulf and Atlantic coastlines.
More information on the home department, The School of Forest Resources and
Conservation can be found at sfrc.ufl.edu. The researcher will be mentored
by Dr. Jason Vogel (https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Jason_Vogel5), and
will join a growing and diverse lab group. Email jvogel at ufl.edu for more
information or call at (979) 846-0879.
