CLIMATE SCIENCES POSTDOCTORAL FELLOW OPPORTUNITIES

Lawrence Berkeley National LaboratoryThe Climate Sciences Department at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory seeks outstanding postdoctoral fellows for the following research areas:

Ecosystem Postdoctoral Fellow (Climate Uncertainties)
The postdoctoral researcher will analyze interactions between tropical ecosystems and the atmosphere, and to use those analyses to inform observational and experimental needs for land model improvement. The project will involve analysis of Earth System Model (ESM) predictions, development of observationally-based model benchmarks, and land model development. We seek talented applicants with proficiency in (1) application of ESMs to analyze land-atmosphere interactions, ecosystem processes, and demography; (2) sensitivity analysis and uncertainty quantification; (3) quantification of feedback processes; (4) terrestrial ecosystem model development and algorithm coding; and (5) the analysis and interpretation of large complex datasets (e.g., CMIP5). Job Number 76310

Climate Change Postdoctoral Fellow (Tropics)
The postdoctoral researcher will study climate change impacts on tropical forests. The goal is the improvement and testing of forest ecosystem models in Earth System Models (ESMs). We seek talented applicants with proficiency in (1) terrestrial ecosystem model development and algorithm coding; (2) application of models to address complex questions at the interface of land-atmosphere interactions, ecosystem processes, vegetation demography, and ecophysiology; (3) sensitivity analysis and uncertainty quantification; and (4) the analysis and interpretation of large complex datasets. Job Number 76311
