The UCLA Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences (AOS) seeks two
postdoctoral scholars, supervised by Prof. Ulli Seibt and Prof. Jochen
Stutz. The positions would begin in the Winter of 2018 and are initially
for one year, with the option of renewals for up to two years, contingent
on satisfactory progress.
The research area is the observation and modelling of land biosphere fluxes
of OCS/CO2/H2O and solar induced fluorescence (SIF). One position focuses
on the acquisition and interpretation of field data from flux towers in the
rainforest in Costa Rica, agricultural fields in Iowa, and the boreal
forest in central Canada. The second position has a stronger focus on
numerical modeling activities related to the field data. Combining the
various datasets will be a component of both positions.
Candidates with experience in biosphere remote sensing, gas exchange
measurements, carbon cycle modeling, or related research areas are
encouraged to apply. Applicants should have a Ph.D. in Atmospheric Sciences
or a related field, proof of effective oral and written communication
skills, and strong analytical skills.
Applicants should submit (1) a statement of research interests and goals,
no longer than one page, (2) a complete CV, including contact information
for three references, and (3) at least one first- authored
publication/manuscript. The materials should be addressed to Ulli Seibt and
Jochen Stutz (firstname.lastname@example.org,
email@example.com). Consideration of
applications will begin on Nov 1, 2017, and continue until the position is
