Post Doctorate RA - Soil Carbon Modeling and Synthesis

Job ID: 308100
Full/Part Time: Full-Time
Regular/Temporary: Temporary

Job Description

A postdoctoral position is available at the Joint Global Change Research Institute (JGCRI) of Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL), focusing on both modeling and data synthesis with respect to the decomposition and mineralization of soil carbon, at scales ranging from core (e.g. laboratory incubations) to global (e.g. drawing on existing soil respiration databases). The overall project employs laboratory incubation experiments, modeling, and data synthesis, and focuses on linking soil organic carbon protection mechanisms to ecosystem CO2 fluxes in response to varying antecedent soil moisture conditions.

The successful candidate will be responsible and accountable for:
Working both independently and collaboratively with other team members, both at JGCRI and in Richland, WA, to identify and lead modeling and synthesis priorities.
Exploring data assimilation and sensitivity analysis techniques to guide fieldwork measurement priorities.
Leading data analysis, the writing of peer-review journal publications, and presentation of results at scientific conferences such as AGU.

This position will be based at PNNL's Joint Global Change Research Institute in College Park, Maryland. Funding is available for a three-year period, contingent upon satisfactory progress in. The preferred start date is between January and June 2019.

When prompted to upload a résumé, please provide a single PDF file containing (1) a cover letter of 1 to 2 pages summarizing research interests and qualifications that fit the advertised position and possible start date at PNNL if selected, and (2) an up-to-date CV.
