[ES_JOBS_NET] Postdoc position available in watershed hydrology and biogeochemistry in permafrost landscapes

> Postdoctoral position: Watershed Hydrology and Biogeochemistry in Permafrost Landscapes

>
> Summary: A postdoctoral position is available within the Earth and Environmental Sciences (EES) Division at Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) to work in the areas of observational and/or experimental hydrology and biogeochemistry of permafrost watersheds. Successful applicants will participate in a collaborative, multi-disciplinary, multi-institution research program doing fundamental research to inform improvements of the representation of Arctic terrestrial processes in Earth System Models. Research activities include the development and application of isotopic and biogeochemical tools to quantify sources, transport pathways and sinks of water, soil, carbon and nutrients through permafrost landscapes. Field experience in remote areas is an asset, and we encourage applicants who can work across disciplines and draw upon diverse data sets and analytical and computational techniques to study linkages between land surface and subsurface processes, as well as ecohydrology.
