Postdoc for modeling biogeochemical processes in terrestrial ecosystems

at University of Texas at El Paso

Candidates should have a Ph.D. in Biology, Ecology, Climate science, Earth system science, or a related field, and demonstrated strength in modeling ecosystem and/or biosphere-atmosphere interactions. Demonstrated experience of working with land surface models (such as CLM) to quantify terrestrial feedbacks to the climate system is considered strongly beneficial. The successful applicant should have experience to conduct research on the impacts of global change on ecosystem function and land surface fluxes of trace gases (carbon dioxide, methane, and nitrous oxide), hydrological processes, or microbial biogeochemistry. Experience in modeling soil biogeochemical processes and the programming ability with FORTRAN and/or C++ are desirable.
