[ES_JOBS_NET] Postdoc: ecosystem-atmosphere interactions, UCLA

A postdoctoral position in measurements or modeling of ecosystem fluxes is available in the Biosphere-Atmosphere Working Group at the Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences at UCLA. The group has ongoing interdisciplinary projects on a range of topics, including tropical and boreal forests under climate change, and shrubland ecohydrology, using methods such as carbonyl sulfide (COS), solar-induced fluorescence, flux chambers, eddy covariance, and modeling.Candidates with research interests in biosphere-atmosphere interactions and ecohydrology are encouraged to apply. Candidates should have a PhD in a field related to Terrestrial Biogeochemistry, and demonstrated strength in measurements or modeling of ecosystem or biosphere-atmosphere fluxes. Candidates with focus on experimental or modeling work will be considered. Experience with both aspects is considered beneficial, and strong quantitative skills (using Python/Matlab etc) are preferred. Candidates with focus on measurements are expected to contribute to field campaigns, and quality control and analysis of field data. Candidates with focus on modeling are expected to demonstrate experience of working with land surface, biosphere or ecosystem models.Significant opportunities exist for independent research and participation in education and outreach depending on the candidate’s interests. The appointment will be for one year with possibility of annual renewal.
