$38,500 - $73,700
***This is a 1 year limited term appointment. Continued employment is contingent upon the availability of funds*** The individual will participate in interdisciplinary research projects which aim at understanding complex interactions among ecosystems, climate and humans funded by NASA, NSF and Auburn University. The individual will work closely with a team of scientists to develop and implement a spatially-explicit process model of coupled biogeochemical and hydrological cycles (carbon, nitrogen, phosphorus and water) over large regions at high resolution, and to use this model in conjunction with remote sensing and field observations for investigating dynamics of carbon, nitrogen, phosphorus and water in terrestrial ecosystems and land-sea interface.
Entry into the applicant pool requires a doctoral degree from an accredited institution in Ecology, Earth System Science, or related field and 2 years research experience in process-based ecosystem modeling, terrestrial biogeochemical cycles, greenhouse gas emission, riverine fluxes of carbon and nutrients, remote sensing and GIS, computer programming (C or C++ highly desired). Employer will consider advanced degrees in lieu of experience. Good interpersonal, communication skills, record of research publications in refereed journals of high quality, a demonstrated ability to function well within multidisciplinary teams. Please submit a cover letter, resume and three professional references with name, address, phone number and e-mail addresses. Only complete applications will be considered for selection.
Postdoctoral experience in ecosystem/land surface modeling is desired.
