Postdoctoral Researcher in Aquatic Flux Measurements
  • The Ecosystems and Global Change Group (www.ecosystemchange.com) at Trent University jointly led by Prof Andrew Tanentzap (Canada Research Chair in Climate Change and Northern Ecosystems) and Dr Erik Emilson (Research Scientist, Canadian Forest Service sector of Natural Resources Canada, https://glfc-wet.github.io) is recruiting a two-year postdoctoral researcher to work on a project investigating the how fluxes of organic matter from land into receiving waters may offset terrestrial carbon sequestration as a nature-based climate solution. The postdoctoral researcher will quantify the amount of carbon lost from boreal forests into freshwaters by establishing two new eddy flux covariance towers. The research will involve tracing the flow of carbon seasonally from land into water and characterising the biogeochemical drivers and impacts of these fluxes. (read full)

  • Assistant Professor in Landscape Science
  • The Department of Environmental Sciences (EVSC) and the School of Architecture (SOA) at the University of Virginia invite applicants for an Assistant Professor in landscape science. We seek applicants whose research and teaching advance knowledge of environmental systems and address problems of societal relevance. The ideal candidate is an empirically oriented environmental scientist whose work addresses problems of regions, landscapes, or land-use patterns. This position is open to all areas of environmental sciences and will prioritize research and teaching in the ecologic, hydrologic, geologic, or atmospheric domains. (read full)

  • Postdoctoral Research Scholar in Urban Flux Measurements
  • An interdisciplinary team of faculty members across multiple schools at Arizona State University was recently awarded a five-year project titled Southwest Urban Corridor Integrated Field Laboratory (SW-IFL). This project is funded by the Environmental System Science Program of the Department of Energy (DOE). The goal of the project is to develop and deploy novel observational and modeling capabilities that improve understanding of extreme heat as a central driver of key environmental outcomes, including greenhouse gas emissions, urban water stress, and fate and transport of urban air pollutants in the complex Arizona megaregion, extending from the US-Mexico border to the Navajo Nation. The Postdoctoral Research Associate will be responsible for the deployment and analysis of new urban flux observations using the eddy covariance method as well as support other urban hydroclimatic measurements related to water, heat, and pollutants, including during intensive observation periods (IOPs).
