Forwarded from CLIMLIST... Position Announcement Land use modeling postdoctoral position at NCAR National Center for Atmospheric Research Boulder, Colorado Application deadline: December 16, 2016 The Integrated Assessment Modeling group at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) in Boulder, Colorado, seeks a postdoctoral researcher in spatial modeling of land use change to develop and apply models at the US and global scale with a focus on agriculture. Key functions in this position are to (1) analyze and employ historical land use and land cover data, including crop-specific changes in agricultural land use, to calibrate and validate existing statistical models of land use change; (2) plan and carry out spatial model development on the basis of evaluation results; and (3) interact with integrated assessment and land surface modelers (including those employing the NCAR Community Land Model, CLM) to incorporate land use change in analyses of climate effects on agriculture, energy, land, and water. The successful applicant will join an interdisciplinary research group at NCAR that includes both social and natural scientists working on the climate change issue (see <https://www2.cgd.ucar.edu/sections/tss/iam>). The group develops and applies new socio-economic models, and linkages to climate models, that leverage NCAR’s status as a world-leading climate modeling center. The position requires expertise in spatial land use data and modeling at regional to global scales, especially related to agricultural land use; experience with spatial statistical approaches to land use modeling; and proficiency in scientific programming in a suitable language (e.g. R, Python, Matlab) and familiarity with Fortran. Experience working in a UNIX environment, and with geographic information systems, is desirable. This is a full-time two-year term position.
