The University of Minnesota, Department of Forest Resources and the USFS Northern Research Station are seeking a postdoctoral scientist to conduct research examining the biological and environmental controls over carbon cycling and storage in forest ecosystems.
The postdoctoral scientist will integrate field measurements of carbon storage and cycling with statistical and simulation models to gain insight into long-term, regional-scale patterns of carbon storage in forests. Experience with and/or interest in gas flux measurements and statistical modeling is preferred. This work includes the opportunity for independent field work across the northern Lake States and the postdoctoral scientist will be responsible for conducting field and lab work in support of project goals, supervising field and lab assistants, analyzing data and preparing peer-reviewed publications.
The position is available immediately, funded for two years, and will be located in St. Paul MN.
