Forwarded from CLIMLIST... OCE Postdoctoral Fellowship - Ecohydrological Remote Sensing The Position: CSIRO offers PhD graduates an opportunity to launch their scientific careers through our Office of the Chief Executive (OCE) Postdoctoral Fellowships. Successful applicants will work with leaders in the field of science and receive personal development and learning opportunities. CSIRO Land and Water Flagship is seeking to appoint a highly motivated postdoctoral fellow to develop new methods for estimating how vegetation alters carbon allocation and structure in response to changes in resource availabilities, particularly CO2, and how these vegetation changes impact the water balance. The fellow’s role will be to: (1) develop a generalised optimality based carbon allocation model; (2) using this model, combine satellite-based measures of above-ground vegetation structure with meteorological and hydrological data to make inferences about the dynamics in below-ground structure; and (3) to build this allocation model into an ecohydrological framework and make national-to-global scale predictions of long-term CO2-induced changes in water and carbon fluxes. Specifically you will: Under the direction of senior research scientists, carry out innovative, high-impact research of strategic importance to CSIRO that will, where possible, lead to novel and important scientific outcomes. Build parsimonious (or top-down) biophysical modelling frameworks and assess/validate these frameworks by analysing long-term national-to-global scale remote sensing, climate and hydrological datasets. Undertake regular reviews of relevant literature. Produce high quality scientific papers suitable for publication in high quality journals.
