Postdoc Opportunity: The Science of Climate and Environmental Change

 

South University of Science and Technology of China (SUSTech)

Shenzhen, China

School of Environmental Science and Engineering

 

We are seeking an outstanding postdoctoral researcher who can lead research projects that contribute to a better understanding of the science of climate and environmental change.

 

We are particularly interested in exploring climate consequences of surface changes (e.g., ecosystem change, land use change). We are also interested in extending science related to human-environment interaction assessment (e.g., effect of human activity on water and energy resources). The successful candidate will play a major role in planning and executing these investigations, working in a diverse group that will include modelers, analysts, and field researchers.

 

Specific research area sought includes:

Impact of ecosystem change on global carbon cycle

Carbon-climate interaction and/or Climate-ecosystem interaction

Climate change and phenology

Impacts of human-mediated land surface change (urbanization or agriculture) on climate change

Climate change impact on energy-use

 

Typically, numerical models (e.g., ecosystem model, land surface model, regional/global climate model, and Earth system model) are our primary tool, but we would be open to using other tools such as satellite remote sensing technique. In collaboration with many start-up companies in Shenzhen, we are going to develop “cheap” and “high-tech” measurement for environmental monitoring from local- to global-scale.

 

Required Qualifications:

PhD in atmospheric science, ecology, forest science, Earth system science, applied mathematics, environmental science/engineering or other relevant discipline

Strong quantitative foundation in statistics or numerical modeling

Demonstrated ability to design, conduct, and publish research related to climate-ecosystem interactions, climate/environmental change

Excellent written and oral communication skills

Programming experience

 

The position starts immediately. This is a 1 year term appointment with the possibility of renewal for up to 3 years based upon satisfactory job performance, continuing availability of funds, and ongoing operational needs. Salary for postdoctoral positions depends on years of experience post-degree.
