The Earth and Environmental Sciences (EES) Division at Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) is seeking applications from diverse candidates with expertise in modeling vegetation dynamics under different environmental conditions (e.g., coastal, tropics and arctic) for spring 2019. The successful candidate will 1) improve the current state-of-the-art dynamic vegetation model, the DOE-sponsored Functionally Assembled Terrestrial Simulator (FATES), to better represent the vegetation responses to water/nutrient limitations and salinity stress; 2) parameterize and evaluate the model with observations from field or remote sensing; and 3) test hypotheses related to vegetation responses to changes in future environmental conditions. The successful candidate will work within a multi-disciplinary team of plant physiologists, ecologists, hydrologists, geomorphologists, and applied mathematicians from LANL and other national laboratories. Questions regarding this recruitment can be directed to Chonggang Xu, cxu at lanl.gov<mailto:cxu at lanl.gov>.
