Postdoctoral Research Opportunity at Lehigh University, PA

Terrestrial Ecosystem Modeling

The Earth & Environmental Sciences Department at Lehigh University has
an opening for one or two postdostoral associates as part of NSF
Macrosystems Biology (MSB) and DOE MIT sponsored funding.The MSB project
aims to explore nonlinear responses of ecosystems to climate extremes,
such as floods and droughts.We will make extensive use of the Ameriflux
network and new NEON data to enhance our development of the Terrestrial
Ecosystem Model (TEM), as well as IPCC AR5 climate data for experiments
with future scenarios.The DOE-MIT project focuses on using these data to
improve NCAR’s CLM-CN model.The postdoctoral associate(s) 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 carbon
cycling within coupled atmosphere-land systems.


Candidates must have a Ph.D. in earth sciences or related
fields.Knowledge of Fortran or C++ as well as IDL (or Matlab or grads),
and experience in scientific computing, are desired.Starting date is
September or earlier.Visit the following web pages for additional
details about our research programs
