POSTDOCTORAL SCHOLAR – TERRESTRIAL BIOGEOCHEMICAL MODELING –U.C. Berkeley and Lawrence Berkeley National Lab
This postdoctoral researcher position is for a scientist with expertise in analyzing agricultural systems, terrestrial biogeochemical processes, plant dynamics, and interactions with climate. The successful candidate will focus on California agriculture and challenges associated with climate change, and will be part of a large, multi-institution, and multi-disciplinary project.
The position calls for expertise in numerical methods for land-surface modeling; uncertainty quantification; parameter estimation; and microbial, abiotic, and plant processes and interactions. The position offers an excellent environment for working with a highly skilled interdisciplinary team and will require strong motivation and excellent oral and written communication skills. The postdoctoral researcher will also have opportunities to collaborate with researchers across our multi-institution project.
The successful candidate may focus on several groups of agriculture-relevant processes, including coupled hydrological and biogeochemical dynamics, nutrient and carbon interactions, plant and microbe interactions, and management. We are also interested in developing methods to evaluate, against observations, process-level and emergent model responses, and in developing model benchmarking approaches.
Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience and generous benefits are included (http://ift.tt/1oFgnDc)
