A multidisciplinary team of researchers studying the carbon balance of Everglade wetlands is seeking a highly-motivated POSTDOCTORAL RESEARCH ASSOCIATE with interests and expertise in micrometeorological measurements of trace gas fluxes. The candidate would be working on a recently-funded collaborative project between the labs of Drs. Steven F. Oberbauer (Florida International University) and Gregory Starr (University of Alabama) in association with the Florida Coastal Everglades LTER that expands on a long-term study of carbon dynamics within Everglades National Park. The postdoctoral scientist will be based at Florida International University in Miami, Florida. The ideal candidate should have experience in eddy covariance techniques, including tower operations. The candidate should also have experience with QA/QC of large data sets, R or SAS programing skills and familiarity with Campbell Scientific data loggers and their programing. Research will be conducted in Everglades National Park in collaboration with the University of Alabama and. The candidate should also have the ability to work outdoors in tropical conditions. Specific responsibilities will include managing eddy covariance measurements, participating in ecosystem modeling, helping with chamber-level measurements of carbon exchange, and taking the lead in key project publications. The candidate should hold a Ph.D. in biophysics, plant physiological ecology, micrometeorology or related fields. A driver’s license is required, and boating experience highly desirable. Applicants interested in applying should sent the following materials to Steven Oberbauer ( with subject line Everglades Postdoc Application: CV, research statement, pdfs of three publications and a list of three references and their contact information.
