Postdoctoral Research Position

The successful candidate will
participate in research focused on the fate of permafrost carbon in a warming world. The research spans both fieldwork and data synthesis, including a primary field location near Denali National Park and Preserve, Alaska. The experimental research foci are (1) net ecosystem carbon exchange (eddy covariance) from a gradient of sites undergoing permafrost thaw, and (2) coupled radiocarbon measurements to detect loss of old carbon. Data from this site will be actively integrated by the candidates with a larger network of carbon flux measurements to develop an updateable time series of ecosystem exchange measurements across the permafrost region. The postdocs will spend the field season in Alaska, with winters spent in Flagstaff, AZ on data synthesis and networking. One postdoc position will be focused on field activities; second postdoc will focus on data synthesis and analysis.
