The Atmospheric Sciences and Global Change Division at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) seeks a research scientist to perform modeling and analysis of ecosystems and their response to perturbations such as land use land cover change, global warming, and other environmental stresses. Ecosystems of particular interest are tropical forest and coastal vegetation, which are experiencing compound stresses such as drought, heat, wildfires, and sea level rise. The incumbent will work on one or more of the following research areas:

  • Develop new process representations of vegetation dynamics for use in earth system models and evaluate models using innovative approaches and observations across scales;
  • Improve modeling of the interactions between ecosystems and key processes of the water and biogeochemical cycles;
  • Design, execute, and analyze numerical experiments using both ecosystem and earth system models to quantify and test hypotheses of how ecosystems respond to perturbations;


The incumbent will work in close collaboration with a team of earth system modelers, atmospheric scientists, ecologists and hydrologists at PNNL and other DOE national laboratories and universities.

When applying please include the following in a single document and visit""> or

  • Cover letter describing your research experience and interests;
  • Curriculum vitae with list of publications in refereed journals;
