Date Fri, 4 Nov 2016 10:07:42 +0000

The Postdoctoral Research Associate - Terrestrial Ecosystems Modeling and 
( 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
Model - ALM). The UQ methodology will be employed to identify and reduce
uncertainties associated with the ALM structure, internal parameters and
drivers. With the updated ALM together with other modeling efforts and
experimental campaigns from the DOE NGEE-Tropics project, the postdoctoral
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,
and development; (b) strong experience in assembling and diagnosing large
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
field (e.g., Atmospheric Science, Ecology, Geography or related area) at
time of appointment. The candidate should also have a strong interest in
collaborative research with a team of modelers and experimentalists. For
information about this position, please
