The Postdoctoral Research Associate - Terrestrial Ecosystems Modeling and Analysis ( NB50601782 ) position has been posted internally and externally through 1/31/2017. A postdoctoral position is available in the Environmental Sciences Division (ESD) and Climate Change Science Institute (CCSI) at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). The successful candidate will be expected to use multiple estimates from observed vegetation and soil fluxes and states to constrain and improve the GPP and carbon allocation scheme in the land component of DOE-sponsored Accelerated Climate Modeling for Energy (ACME Land Model - ALM). The UQ methodology will be employed to identify and reduce various uncertainties associated with the ALM structure, internal parameters and external drivers. With the updated ALM together with other modeling efforts and experimental campaigns from the DOE NGEE-Tropics project, the postdoctoral candidate will also be responsible for investigating the response mechanisms of tropical rainforests to droughts and ENSO events. The selected candidate will have one or more of the following attributes: (a) a background in land surface model simulation, evaluation and development; (b) strong experience in assembling and diagnosing large models and observational datasets; (c) and strong programing skills in at least one of Fortran, R, Matlab, NCL or Python. The applicant should have a Ph.D. in an appropriate field (e.g., Atmospheric Science, Ecology, Geography or related area) at the time of appointment. The candidate should also have a strong interest in collaborative research with a team of modelers and experimentalists. For more information about this position, please contact Dr. Jiafu Mao (firstname.lastname@example.org).
