(DVM) and land surface models (such as NCAR CLM) to quantity biospheric
feedbacks to the climate system is considered strongly beneficial. The
successful applicant must have sufficient research experience to conduct
independent research on the impacts of climate change on ecosystem
function and land surface fluxes of trace gases (CO_2 ) and
evapotranspiration. Experience in modeling climate impacts on CH_4
fluxes is desirable. The successful candidate should be able to teach,
or contribute to, undergraduate and graduate courses in ecology, such as
