An NSF Macrosystems project on “Climate legacies and timescales of influence on carbon cycle processes in drylands” is seeking to hire a second postdoc at Northern Arizona University (NAU) in beautiful Flagstaff, Arizona. The postdoc will participate in projects related to understanding and predicting the impacts of extreme climate or weather events on ecosystem C fluxes (e.g., using data from the NEON and/or AmeriFlux networks) across a range of spatial and temporal scales in the western US. The postdoc will co-supervise student (undergraduate or masters) researchers and will potentially contribute to outreach and training activities. A PhD or equivalent in a relevant field is required, such as plant/ecosystem ecology, environmental science, forestry, statistics, or data science. Applicants should have experience in statistical modeling (e.g., Bayesian and/or machine learning), coding (e.g., in R) and computing, and working with flux tower data and other ecological, environmental, or climate data. Applicants are expected to have a good understanding of plant physiological or ecosystem ecology, demonstrate a track record of writing and publishing scientific manuscripts, and be excited and willing to work in a collaborative environment. All application materials should be submitted in a single PDF-document and include: (1) curriculum vitae, (2) cover letter describing interest in the project and qualifications relevant to the position, and (3) contact information for at least 3 professional references. To apply, go to Careers @ NAU (, click “Current openings,” then “Career opportunities,” then search “Staff openings” using vacancy number 607880.
