Research Scientist/Postdoctoral Researcher Opportunity - Carbon cycling in 
thawing permafrost peatlands

The University of New Hampshire has a Research Scientist II (or Postdoctoral 
Researcher) opening for a DOE-funded project. The successful candidate will be 
located in Berkeley, California at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory 
(LBNL), but will work with project members at multiple institutions on this 
multi-disciplinary project. The project focuses on the carbon cycle in thawing 
permafrost peatlands, related plant and microbial processes, and climate 
feedbacks. The position calls for expertise in numerical methods for 
land-surface modeling; uncertainty quantification; parameter estimation; and 
microbial biochemistry, abiotic, and plant processes and interactions.

The successful candidate may focus on several relevant processes, questions, 
and scales, related to coupled hydrological and biogeochemical dynamics, 
nutrient and carbon interactions, plant and microbe interactions, and climate 
feedbacks. We are also interested in developing methods to evaluate, against 
observations, process level and emergent model responses, and in developing 
model benchmarking approaches.

Essential Qualifications:

• Ph.D. in an appropriate discipline;

• Graduate Student or Postdoctoral research experience in ecosystem modeling, 
with specific modeling skills in coupled hydrological, biogeochemical, and 
atmospheric processes;

• Excellent written and oral communication skills, including scientific writing 
and presentation skills;

• Ability to develop, test, run, and analyze multi-scale coupled hydrological 
and biogeochemical cycle models;

• Good knowledge of site- to watershed-scale hydrological and biogeochemical 

• Ability to work collaboratively.
