Postdoctoral Research Scientist. The University of Alaska Fairbanks
invites applications for one or more postdoctoral positions to conduct
modeling studies in two projects associated with the Bonanza Creek Long
Term Ecological Research Program (see (1) the
Alaska Peatland Experiment (APEX; see; and
(2) “Assessing the impacts of fire and insect disturbance on the
terrestrial carbon budgets of forested areas in Canada and Alaska”. The two
projects currently have a total combined four years of postdoctoral
support. The scientist(s) will conduct modeling studies that make use of
data that is being collected by the projects and that involve the
integration of existing models of vegetation dynamics and biogeochemistry.
Training in earth system science or biogeochemistry is required, and the
scientists must have skills in mathematics, computer programming, data
analysis, and modeling of system dynamics. Individuals interested in
combining research interests in environmental modeling with interests in
ecosystem ecology, vegetation dynamics, soil dynamics, or hydrology are
strongly encouraged to apply. A Ph.D. degree (already received or awaiting
receipt with all requirements fulfilled) is required.

Applications for this position can be submitted at the following URL: or by going to and entering posting number 0054948. Applications
