*Research Scientist Opportunity - **carbon cycling in thawing permafrost

The University of New Hampshire has a Research Scientist II (or
Postdoctoral Researcher) opening for a DOE-funded project. The successful
candidate will be located in Berkeley, California at the Lawrence Berkeley
National Laboratory (LBNL), but will work with project members at multiple
institutions on this multi-disciplinary project.  The project focuses on
the carbon cycle in thawing permafrost peatlands, related plant and
microbial processes, and climate feedbacks. The position calls for
expertise in numerical methods for land-surface modeling; uncertainty
quantification; parameter estimation; and microbial biochemistry, abiotic,
and plant processes and interactions.

The successful candidate may focus on several relevant processes,
questions, and scales, related to coupled hydrological and biogeochemical
dynamics, nutrient and carbon interactions, plant and microbe interactions,
and climate feedbacks. We are also interested in developing methods to
evaluate, against observations, process-level and emergent model responses,
and in developing model benchmarking approaches.

*Essential Qualifications: *• Ph.D. in an appropriate discipline;
• Graduate Student or Postdoctoral research experience in ecosystem
modeling, with specific modeling skills in coupled hydrological,
biogeochemical, and atmospheric processes;
• Excellent written and oral communication skills, including scientific
writing and presentation skills;
• Ability to develop, test, run, and analyze multi-scale coupled
hydrological and biogeochemical cycle models;
• Good knowledge of site- to watershed-scale hydrological and
biogeochemical dynamics;
• Ability to work collaboratively in a modeling group.
