Oregon State University Post-Doctoral Research Associate position in regional modeling of ecosystem response to climate change and management.
The Law Lab of the Terrestrial Ecosystem Research and Regional Analysis research group (Terra-PNW) in the College of Forestry’s Department of Forest Ecosystems and Society invites applications for a full-time (1.0 FTE), 12-month, fixed-term Research Associate (Post-Doctoral) position in regional modeling of ecosystem response to climate change and management. Reappointment is at the discretion of the Department Head.
The Research Associate (Post Doc) will develop, test and apply the Community Land Model (CLM) to improve prediction of climate-related stress, forest die-back and effects of future climate and management on carbon uptake across the western United States. Studies will focus on the effects of climate extremes on forest ecosystems and incorporate flux site data for model parameterization and to validate model results.
The Research Associate (Post Doc) is part of a team of researchers using field observations, remote sensing data and models to quantify the effects of climate, disturbance and land management on structure and function of forest ecosystems at multiple scales (ecosystem to region). The incumbent will interact with other postdoctoral researchers, students and research assistants in the Terra-PNW group on model development, testing, and application. Responsibilities center on research and publishing in peer-reviewed journals, and presentations at local and national scientific conferences.
All applicants prior to the position closing date (May 23, 2016) will be considered. Please visit https://jobs.oregonstate.edu/postings/22873 for more details. For questions, please contact Dr. Beverly Law (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Dr. Matthew Jones (email@example.com)
