National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR)The Climate and Global Dynamics Division (CGD) at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) in Boulder, Colorado, seeks an individual to collaborate with scientists to provide a leadership role for agricultural science and modeling at NCAR. The research areas will be related to the development and evaluation of crop modeling in the Community Land Model (CLM) relative to and in combination with economic modeling of the agricultural sector in the integrated assessment model iPETS. This work will be used to assess and improve the simulation of crop growth and yield production under historical and future changes in crop management, atmospheric CO2, and climate for the regions of Brazil, India and China, with a view to expanding the study worldwide.

This is a 2-year term position with possibility of extension. Partial relocation costs paid per UCAR’s relocation policy. If necessary, UCAR/NCAR will sponsor a work visa (e.g., H1B, etc.) to fill this position.
