[ES_JOBS_NET] Postdoctoral Position in carbon, water, energy cycling in semi-arid biomes (University of New Mexico)

Postdoctoral Position
in carbon, water, energy cycling in semi-arid biomes (University of New Mexico)

We are seeking a postdoc to join a collaborative team at
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.  

Applicants with a strong background in working with (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) land
surface models such as the Community Land Model will be given high priority.  This position is available for one year
initially, with potential to renew annually for 2 additional years based on
performance.  This position requires:

1)    
a Ph.D in ecosystem ecology, biometeorology,
biogeochemistry, or fields related to environmental studies.

2)    
demonstrated experience in a range of computer
coding languages, but particularly Matlab. 

3)    
successful publication record

4)    
excellent written and oral communication skills

5)    
an interest in exploring how carbon, water and
energy fluxes in semi-arid biomes are responding to drought, mortality and
other disturbances at different spatial and temporal scales

The University of New Mexico is an equal-opportunity
employer and we encourage underrepresented applicants.  The salary is $50,000/yr with good health
care and other benefits.   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 1,
2017 and is open until filled.  

Thanks,

Marcy
