Earth Research Scientist

Berkeley Lab’s Earth and Environmental Sciences Area (EESA) has an exciting opening for an Earth Research Scientist to join the AmeriFlux Management Project (AMP).

This role will build new data processing and synthesis capabilities for the AmeriFlux Network. The AmeriFlux network is a coordinated set of more than 150 sites across the Americas measuring fluxes of CO2, water, energy in terrestrial ecosystems. AMP works with AmeriFlux scientists to ensure the quality and availability of ecosystem measurements necessary to understand terrestrial ecosystems and their relationship to the Earth system. Data processing and analytics for this data are active research topics, with a lively community of interdisciplinary scientists and overarching impact ranging from fundamental biological processes to global scale climate change. The project will involve development of data processing and analysis methods for carbon flux data, and their validation on data sets collected at several types of ecosystems under a variety of climatic conditions.

As part of our Climate Sciences Department, this position will join a dynamic interdisciplinary team based at LBNL and will work closely with carbon flux researchers at LBNL, UC Berkeley, and across the Americas. LBNL is a renowned center of scientific expertise in many facets of climate-related fundamental and applied science.

We seek talented individuals with training in Biometeorology, Ecosystem Ecology, and Terrestrial/Earth system modeling, and a strong aptitude for and interest in Computational Science.

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.
