The department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology of Princeton University, in collaboration with UCLA and UCSB is seeking a Postdoctoral fellow with a passion for studying the natural world, motivated to take on the challenge of improving our understanding of linkages between plant traits and ecosystem processes under changing environmental conditions. The position is funded by an NSF grant (Award 2017804) for a duration of two years.
This project aims to provide a mechanistic understanding of the role of traits, including hydraulic traits, in determining fluxes for several forested NEON and FluxNet sites. The post-doc will be responsible for improving the current model, implementing the new hydraulic scheme, and assimilating the data. Previous experience with Earth Ecosystem Models or plant physiological modeling is recommended.
