[ES_JOBS_NET] Postdoc in carbon, water, energy dynamics of semi-arid biomes

Postdoctoral Position
at the University of New Mexico

We are seeking a postdoctoral fellow to join a collaborative
team from UNM, conducting research on ecosystem-atmosphere exchange of carbon,
water and energy in semi-arid ecosystems.  
Our group operates a network of nine eddy covariance flux towers sites
distributed across a 1500 m elevation gradient in New Mexico that monitor
ecosystem-atmosphere fluxes and associated plant physiological and microbial
processes.  

We encourage individuals with a record of experience and
research productivity in one or more of the following areas to apply: (i) EC
flux tower or other land-surface flux datasets; (ii) physiological, ecosystem, ecohydrology
and/or landscape ecology with an emphasis on analyzing large datasets; (iii) ecosystem
modeling with emphasis on land surface models such as the Community Land
Model.  This position is available for
one year initially, with potential to renew annually for 3 years based on
performance.  This position requires an
interest in exploring how fluxes in these rapidly changing biomes are
responding to disturbance and climate change, a Ph.D in plant physiological
ecology, ecosystem ecology, biometeorology, biogeochemistry, or related field, demonstrated
programming expertise in Matlab and/or R, successful publication record and
excellent written and oral communication skills. 

The University of New Mexico is an equal-opportunity
employer and we encourage underrepresented applicants.  The salary is highly competitive and health
care benefits are excellent.   Please
send a cover letter with qualifications and research interests, CV, and contact
information of three references by email to Dr. Marcy Litvak (mlitvak@unm.edu).  Position is available beginning September 15,
2016 and is open until filled.
