Canopy-scale fluxes and in-canopy processes of atmosphere-biosphere exchange of reactive nitrogen will be investigated using a combination of micrometeorological flux measurements and modeling. The candidate will work with advanced instruments for nitrogen trace gas and aerosol flux measurements and assist in the development of low-cost methods to better estimate dry deposition for routine monitoring.

A postdoctoral research position in remote sensing is available in the Spatial Ecosystem Analytics Lab (SEAL, https://seal.wordpress.ncsu.edu PI: Dr. Josh Gray) at NC State University. The ideal candidate will have extensive experience with technical remote sensing (i.e., algorithm development), strong computational skills (R and/or Python preferred) and experience working with massive datasets in a distributed computing environment, hydrologic and or ecosystem modeling experience, and a fundamental interest in using remote sensing to understand large-scale Earth system changes.

Applications are now being accepted for a 2-year NICHD post-doctoral research fellowship in
Developmental Science at the University of Michigan. The Developmental Area within the
Department of Psychology will award one post-doctoral fellowship with an ideal start date
between August 1 and September 15. The successful applicant must complete all requirements
for the PhD before the post-doctoral fellowship can begin; however, it is not necessary that the
degree be conferred before the start date.
The objective of the fellowship is to train individuals on three pillars of knowledge: (1)
developmental science of social context; (2) human neurobiology, which may include brain
imaging, genetics, epigenetics, and endocrine function; and (3) advanced research methods
(e.g., quantitative statistics appropriate for combining and analyzing longitudinal data from
different levels of functioning). This cross-training will produce researchers well-positioned to
develop cutting-edge work that advances knowledge about how neurobiological factors interact
with environmental contexts to influence development across several domains and contexts.
The Developmental Area faculty has a broad range of research interests across the life-span
from infancy to late adulthood. See full description for details.

The postdoctoral Research Associate will conduct regional modeling with the Community Land Model (CLM) to improve prediction of climate-related stress, forest die-back, and effects of future climate and land management options on carbon uptake across the western US. It requires a Ph.D. in earth system science, ecophysiology, or related discipline, and a working knowledge of FORTRAN90 and a land system model or similar complex models.

There is an immediate opening for a Postdoctoral Scholar in the area of trace gas flux measurements. The position involves the day-to-day responsibility for a methane, carbon dioxide and energy flux measurement study in the Sacramento – San Joaquin Delta, 50 miles east of Berkeley. The candidate
will be responsible in acquiring and processing eddy covariance data from a suite of restored wetlands and agricultural crops. Other duties include servicing, maintaining and calibrating instruments, field measurements of soil/plant status, the analysis and interpretation of field data and writing of scientific
papers. The ideal candidate must be able to work with a team of technicians, other postdocs and graduate students on this project.
BASIC QUALIFICATIONS
Candidates must have completed all degree requirements except the dissertation or be enrolled in an accredited PhD or equivalent degree program in Micrometeorology, Biometeorology, Ecosystem Ecology or related field at the time of application.
ADDITIONAL QUALIFICATIONS
Candidates must have a PhD or equivalent degree in Micrometeorology, Biometeorology, Ecosystem Ecology or related field by appointment start date.

PREFERRED QUALIFICATIONS
The ideal candidate should have a demonstrated understanding of micrometeorology, biometeorology, land, air and water resources, atmospheric sciences, ecosystem ecology or trace gas biogeochemistry. The ideal candidate should be fluent in database software and a computer language such as Matlab, C or Python and should have prior experience or training in measuring carbon, water and energy fluxes between the biosphere and atmosphere.
APPOINTMENT
The anticipated start date for this appointment is September 1, 2016. The initial appointment is for 12 months, with renewal based on performance and funding. This is a full-time appointment.
