Forwarded from CLIMLIST... We invite applications for a postdoctoral research associate position in land surface modeling, with a focus on model development and testing. The initial appointment is for one year and renewable for up to three years depending on performance. We seek highly motivated candidates to couple land surface energy and mass transfer schemes, distributed hydrological models, and ecological models to investigate climatic impacts on terrestrial hydrological and ecological processes. This is part of a NSF funded Macrosystem biology project (to study the internal and external forcings of the North American Monsoon Systems (NAMS). The coupled ecohydrological model will be used to study the impacts of climate change and rainfall redistribution over complex terrains on the spread of invasive species and the frequency of wildfires over river basins in central/northern Mexico and the southwestern US. This position provides outstanding opportunities to collaborate with a broad interdisciplinary team of atmospheric scientists, hydrologists, and ecologists on the campus and at the Biosphere 2 (<www.b2science.org>) of the University of Arizona. PhD in atmospheric science, hydrology, ecology, biogeochemistry, or an interdisciplinary combination of these areas with programming skills is required. Experience with the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) Community Land Model (CLM) and/or other land surface models, distributed hydrological modeling, or ecological modeling is preferred. The position is available immediately and will be remain open until filled. The salary will be commensurate with experience. Candidate should apply and submit a curriculum vita and the contact information for three referees following the instructions at <https://www.uacareertrack.com> (job #48184). For additional information, please contact Dr. Guo-Yue Niu at <firstname.lastname@example.org> Outstanding UA benefits include health, dental, vision, and life insurance; paid vacation, sick leave, and holidays; UA/ASU/NAU tuition reduction for the employee and qualified family members; access to UA recreation and cultural activities.
