Postdoctoral Research Opportunity at Lehigh University, PA

Terrestrial Ecosystem Modeling

The Earth & Environmental Sciences Department at Lehigh University has
an opening for a postdostoral fellow as part of a joint effort with the
MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global  Change.  The
project aims to improve the NCAR CLM-CN model to enable us to study the
carbon consequences of land use change and recovery from disturbance.
The postdoctoral fellow will have the opportunity to use the CLM-CN
within the NCAR CESM or the MIT Integrated Global Systems Model (IGSM)
to explore questions related to the coupled atmosphere-land systems,
particularly with regard to future land use change scenarios produced by
MIT.


Candidates with a Ph.D. in earth sciences and related fields are
desired.  Knowledge of Fortran, familiarity with C++ and IDL (or Matlab
or grads), and experience in scientific computing would be helpful.
Funding is available for 2 years, starting in January, 2012.  Future
opportunities at Lehigh or MIT may become available with additional
external funding.  Visit the following web pages for additional details
about our research programs (<http://www.lehigh.edu/~bsf208/bsf208.html,
http://globalchange.mit.edu/>).  All interested applicants please send
your CV and contact information for at least 3 references to Benjamin
Felzer (<bsf208@lehigh.edu>).
