Crop Modeling

The Climate and Global Dynamics Division (CGD) at the National Center
for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) in Boulder, Colorado, seeks an
individual to collaborate with scientists to provide a leadership role
for agricultural science and modeling at NCAR. The research areas will
be related to the development and evaluation of crop modeling in the
Community Land Model (CLM) relative to and in combination with economic
modeling of the agricultural sector in the integrated assessment model
iPETS. This work will be used to assess and improve the simulation of
crop growth and yield production under historical and future changes in
crop management, atmospheric CO2, and climate for the regions of Brazil,
India and China, with a view to expanding the study worldwide.

Requires a recent Ph.D. in agricultural science, earth system science,
environmental science, terrestrial ecology, or a related field. Must
have expert knowledge of agricultural systems, crop yield modeling, and
biogeochemistry and knowledge of the physical and biological basis of
land surface and biogeochemical models. Requires skill in the use of
graphical analysis tools for large datasets (e.g., NCL, IDL, MatLAB).

Must have skill in the use of UNIX operating system and its variants and
experience with high performance computing environments. Requires
ability to understand and modify code in Fortran90. Requires strong
skills in verbal and written communication of scientific results and
ability to work both independently or collaboratively as a member of
interdisciplinary scientific teams.

This is a 2-year term position with possibility of extension. Partial
relocation costs paid per UCAR’s relocation policy. If necessary,
UCAR/NCAR will sponsor a work visa (e.g., H1B, etc.) to fill this position.
