Subject: Post-doctoral research opportunity in GIS and Spatial Analysis of Global Change
Dear Colleagues,
EPA’s National Center for Environmental Assessment (NCEA) has a
post-doctoral research training opportunity available focusing on GIS and=
spatial analysis of global change:http://ift.tt/1S9dwts
The focus of this opportunity is to apply advanced GIS and other spatial
analysis tools to assessments of global change (i.e., climate, land use,
biogeochemical changes) impacts, vulnerabilities, and adaptation response=
s.
Assessment endpoints include urban systems, ecosystems, air and water
quality, and human health.=20
The participant will become familiar with the latest approaches, framewor=
ks
and models for understanding and addressing changes in climate, land use,=
and other global change factors. He/She will learn how to critically
evaluate climate and land use model output and to identify both
opportunities and limitations when using those data in applied research, =
and
will learn how both detailed modeling and high-level assessment activitie=
s
are used to accomplish NCEA=92s mission. This research training opportuni=
ty
will provide an exceptional professional development opportunity in a hig=
hly
collaborative, multidisciplinary environment. The participant will have
access to a team of experts collaborating in and across disciplines
(geography, ecology, hydrology, health, urban systems) on emerging and
high-profile research topics.
