Two Postdoctoral Research Associates
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign 

The Department of Atmospheric Sciences at the University of Illinois, 
Urbana-Champaign, USA is seeking two postdoctoral research associate positions 
to conduct research aimed at improving process level understanding of: (1) the 
sensitivity of carbon and water components in agriculture and forestry sectors 
to key direct, indirect, and interacting effects of climate variability and 
change, and (2) the budget of methane from terrestrial ecosystem, including 
both wetland and non-wetland methane emissions and sinks from soils 
        
The research will be conducted using a process-based global land surface model, 
Integrated Science Assessment Model (ISAM), coupled with a regional climate 
model. The research tasks will involve enhancing and refining a coupled 
modeling system to improve its ability in these two areas of research using 
approaches which can be validated against available measured datasets at 
regional and global scales.

We seek candidates with a Ph.D. in earth system science, climate science, or 
other related fields in the sciences or engineering with a working knowledge of 
one of the following models: land surface model, crop growth model, methane 
biogeochemistry model, regional climate model or similar complex models. A 
working experience in FORTRAN is a must. Demonstrated ability to produce 
quality research outputs, excellent oral and verbal communication skills and an 
interest in working with researchers from other related fields will be among 
the selection criteria. 

The initial term will be for two years with the strong potential for renewal 
based on performance and available funding.

Applicants should send the following materials by email to Prof. Atul Jain at 
jain1@illinois.edu: (1) a cover letter describing research interest and 
experience, (2) curriculum vita, and (3) names and contact information for 
three references. The salary is commensurate with experience. For full 
consideration, applications must be received by February 28, 2018.

The University of Illinois is an Affirmative Action, Equal Opportunity Employer.
