Position: Postdoctoral Research Scientist

The University of Alaska Fairbanks invites applications for a postdoctoral scientist to conduct wetland modeling and remote sensing studies as part of the Yukon Flats Thermokarst project and the Integrated Ecosystem Model for Alaska Project. The successful candidate will primarily conduct modeling studies that include the development, parameterization, testing, analysis, and application of models that simulate the vegetation and carbon dynamics of wetland ecosystems in Alaska. The successful candidate will also be likely involved in remote sensing activities such as repeated imagery analysis. Training in earth system science or biogeochemistry is required. Research experience in modeling wetland hydrology and biogeochemistry is required, and skills in remote sensing, data analysis and computer programming are required. A Ph.D. degree (already received or awaiting receipt with all requirements fulfilled) is required. More information on the nature of the position can be obtained by contacting Dr. H.Genet, The University of Alaska is an equal employment/affirmative action employer and educational institution.
