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

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:

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

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

successful publication record

excellent written and oral communication skills

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,
