Postdoc position in ecosystem modeling
The Earth Systems Ecology Lab (www.hurteaulab.org) at the University of New Mexico is recruiting a postdoctoral researcher with a strong background in ecosystem modeling and programming to contribute to a project aimed at understanding the interaction of climate change and wildfire on post-fire forest recovery. This project will integrate tree seedling data, flux tower data, and ecosystem modeling with the objective of understanding how changing climate will alter forest recovery following wildfire.
The initial appointment is for one year (beginning summer 2017), with the possibility of extension for up to two additional years. A competitive salary and benefits will be provided. Required qualifications include a PhD in ecology, ecosystem science, earth/environmental sciences, or statistics and programming experience with R or Python and C+ or C#. Willingness to periodically participate in field sampling is desirable.
Applicants should submit a cover letter detailing research interests and goals, a complete CV, and names and contact information for three references to Matthew Hurteau (firstname.lastname@example.org). Review of applications will begin on 28 April 2017.
