Postdoctoral position in Global Change Ecology, Department of Biology, University of Utah
The Anderegg Lab in the Department of Biology at the University of Utah is seeking a creative and innovative postdoctoral researcher who can lead research projects that contribute to a better understanding of the impacts of climate extremes on forest ecosystems. We have ongoing projects on an array of topics, including drought-induced tree mortality, recovery after climate extremes, disturbance and carbon dynamics, plant ecophysiology and hydraulics, coupled models of human-ecosystem interactions, and ecosystem modeling. We work across a wide range of scales from plant physiology to ecosystem fluxes. Candidates with research interests in ecosystem ecology, ecological modeling, ecophysiology, or plant ecology would be strong fits. Candidates with strong quantitative skills and proficient programming skills are preferred and background in ecosystem modeling is a strength. Interested applicants should send a current CV, a 1-2 paragraph description of research interests that specifically outlines the work the applicant would be excited to undertake in the position, and a list of 3 references to William Anderegg (ander...@utah.edu). Review of applicants will start March 12th, 2016.
