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 or spatial data analysis to contribute to a project aimed at understanding the interaction of climate change and disturbance impacts on western US forest ecosystems.
The initial appointment is for one year (beginning summer/fall 2023), with the possibility of extension. Salary is $60,000-63,000 per year, plus benefits. Required qualifications include a PhD in ecology, ecosystem science, earth/environmental sciences, or statistics and programming experience with R. Also, given the current backlog for obtaining a visa, applicants are required to be eligible to work in the US. Preferred qualifications include programming in C+ or C# and willingness to occasionally participate in field sampling.
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 7 JULY 2023.
