Postdoctoral Researcher: Analysis and Modeling of the Carbon Cycle, UC
Irvine

A postdoctoral scholar position is available in the Department of Earth
System Science at the University of California, Irvine in the laboratory
of Dr. James Randerson on topics related to the study of the
contemporary global carbon cycle. The position will involve analysis of
recent changes in the terrestrial biosphere using atmospheric and remote
sensing observations, eddy covariance flux observations, and models.
Potential areas of scientific inquiry include, but are not limited to,
the study of drought effects on ecosystem carbon fluxes, analysis of
aircraft CO_2 and CH_4 observations, or development of a climate-carbon
model benchmarking system. The scholar also may develop new ways to use
available observations to reduce uncertainties related to climate-carbon
models projections of future change.

A Ph.D. in earth system science, biology, chemistry, atmospheric
science, civil engineering or a related discipline is
required.Experience with remote sensing or eddy covariance data analysis
and/or model development is desired, along with knowledge of programming
languages such as C, FORTRAN, R, Python, MATLAB, or IDL. The successful
candidate will have excellent written and oral communication skills,
along with demonstrated ability to work well in a collaborative environment.

For full consideration, please submit a letter of application, a
curriculum vitae and the names and telephone numbers of three references
by April 1st, 2013 to Jim Randerson, jranders@uci.edu
<mailto:jranders@uci.edu>. The start date is negotiable. A 12-month
commitment is expected. Pending successful performance, the position may
be renewed annually for up to three years.

University of California is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity
Employer.

Postdoctoral Researcher: CESM Biogeochemical Cycles Model Development
and Analysis, UC Irvine

A postdoctoral scholar position is available in the Department of Earth
System Science at the University of California, Irvine in the laboratory
of Dr. James Randerson on topics related to the study of decadal-scale
variability of the global biogeochemical cycles in the Community Earth
System Model. Examples of potential research topics include, but are not
limited to, biosphere-atmosphere feedbacks related to the representation
of disturbance processes (including fires), aerosols, dynamic
vegetation, land use change, or agriculture. The scholar also may
develop new ways to use available carbon cycle observations to reduce
uncertainties related to climate-carbon models projections of future
change.

A Ph.D. in earth system science, biology, chemistry, atmospheric
science, civil engineering or a related discipline is
required.Experience with model development is desired, along with
