Postdoctoral Position in Micrometeorology/Carbon Cycle Science

The University of Minnesota seeks a postdoctoral research associate with expertise in micrometeorological measurements. The successful candidate will collaborate on a NASA-funded project to understand how carbon, water, and energy fluxes in human-modified landscapes are controlled by land use, climatic, and biophysical processes. The project involves multi-scale flux measurements and remote sensing, providing ideal opportunities to pursue interests in areas such as footprint modeling, ecophysiology of plant functional types, surface energy budget, and scaling flux data using remotely sensed data. The work will involve collaboration with other investigators in the North American Carbon Program and FLUXNET. Please see for more information.
Responsibilities of the position include acquiring, processing, and analyzing eddy covariance data, and communicating results in peer-reviewed publications. Qualifications include: (1) experience in measuring ecosystem-atmosphere fluxes with the eddy covariance method, (2) strong quantitative and scientific communication skills, and (3) a Ph.D. in Atmospheric science, Earth system science, Ecology, Environmental science, Geography, or other relevant field.
The position and the field site are located in Minneapolis-Saint Paul, which is ranked among the best metropolitan areas in the U.S. for livability, health, literature and the arts, and outdoor recreation. Competitive salary and benefits are provided. The position is funded for three years with renewal of the appointment on an annual basis. Starting date negotiable. The position is available immediately and will remain open until filled; however, those interested should contact Dr. McFadden as soon as possible. To apply, please send a description of your research interests, a curriculum vitae, and the contact information for three references to: Dr. Joe McFadden, University of Minnesota, 100 Ecology Building, 1987 Upper Buford Circle, Saint Paul, MN 55108; or by email to: The University of Minnesota is an equal opportunity educator and employer.
