Postdoctoral Research Fellowship: Carbon Neutral Landscapes in Hawaii
Announcement: A postdoctoral research position is available for a
quantitative ecologist and/or carbon cycle scientist to develop modeling
approaches for developing pathways to landscape scale carbon neutrality in
the Hawaiian Islands. We are seeking a researcher who can combine multiple
data sources (mass and energy transfer budgets, global warming potential
budgets for agricultural and natural ecosystems) into models directly
applicable to the management of carbon sources and sinks. The successful
applicant will work in a team to use in-situ measurements, remote sensing
data, and modeling methods to evaluate the natural, agricultural, and
societal sources and sinks of atmospheric greenhouse gases with the goal of
moving Hawaii towards it's legislated goal of being carbon neutral by 2045.
Organization: U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Forest Science, Pacific
Southwest Station, Institute of Pacific Islands Forestry (IPIF) in Hilo,
Location: Hilo, Hawaii
Qualifications: Ph.D. in ecology, ecological economics, geography,
sustainability science, climate policy, or equivalent and strong
quantitative, modeling, and/or remote sensing analysis skills and
experiences. Strong statistical, computer programming (e.g. Python, R, Web,
etc.), and spatial analysis skills are also required. Desired qualifications
include demonstrated experience in working with diverse collaborators,
experience working in a group environment.
Responsibilities: Work in a team setting with scientists and collaborators
in different locations across the country and with different background and
expertise, develop models and scenarios, conduct analysis linking major
sectors in global carbon cycle in the modeling framework, publish in
peer-reviewed journals, conduct outreach with environmental management
Work Environment: In addition to working with the USDA Forest Service,
successful applicant will work with researchers from other government
agencies (USDA, USGS, Hawaii Division of Forestry and Wildlife),
universities (Yale, UCLA, Stanford, UHM), NGO's (The Nature Conservancy,
Hawaii Green Growth Initiative, Hawaii Natural Energy Institute), other
postdoctoral researchers, field technicians, graduate students, and
Compensation: Funding for two years is guaranteed with the position.
Application: Please send a cover letter, statement of research interests,
curriculum vitae, and two references with email addresses and phone numbers.
Statement of research interests should include your accomplishments and how
this position will help you achieve your career objectives. Please contact
Dr. Christian Giardina by calling 1-808-315-1135 or emailing
cgiardina at fs.fed.us for more information. Application materials should be
submitted electronically to cgiardina at fs.fed.us. Applications will be
reviewed beginning on November 22nd, 2018 and continuing until the position
is filled. Expected start date is January 21th, 2019.
