Research position in carbon cycling research

One postdoctoral research position is available in the area of climate controls on carbon cycling in the Florida coastal everglades. The post-doctoral scientist will assist with integrating research findings relevant  to  climate  controls  on  carbon  sequestration  in  the  Everglades,  and  analyzing and  interpreting  data  sets  from  flux  towers  and  remote  sensing  platforms.  The  full-time postdoctoral position also entails collecting and synthesizing datasets from a variety of sources, including meteorological and hydrological stations, continuous ecosystem carbon exchanges at selected  sites  in  the  Everglades,  and  remote  sensing  information.  Numerical  modeling simulations are part of the research activities as well. Excellent computing and field facilities are available to carry out the research. The candidate is expected to interact with an interdisciplinary team of scientists involving ecologists, climate scientists, and hydrologists. The incumbent needs to have a PhD degree in ecosystem science, hydrology, biogeochemistry, atmospheric sciences, or a closely related field. Research experience with field studies involving flux towers and management of large data sets (exceeding several gigabytes) is highly desirable. Also, experience in developing and/or running numerical models designed to investigate climate and biogeochemical controls on ecosystem state and function is preferable. Excellent oral and written  communication  skills  are  important  because  the  incumbent  will  contribute  to  peerreviewed publications and presentation of results at national conferences. The incumbent will be based  at  the  Everglades  National  Park  office  in  Homestead,  FL  and/or  Florida  International University  in  Miami,  FL.  The  salary  will  be  competitive  and  commensurate  with  relevant experience.
