Postdoctoral Position in Vegetation and Wildlife Modeling

Institute of Arctic Biology, University of Alaska Fairbanks

A postdoctoral position is currently available within the Institute of
Arctic Biology at the University of Alaska Fairbanks. This project entails
projecting changes in biomass and digestibility of caribou forages to gain
a better understanding of how these changes may affect the fat and protein
dynamics of coastal and upland calving caribou in the Arctic. The
investigation will utilize an arctic and boreal specific dynamic
vegetation model that will be linked to an existing caribou energetics
model. This project will involve direct collaboration with scientists from
several U.S. and Canadian management agencies.

This is a full-time fixed term position with benefits, with initial
appointment for one year, and potential for repeated renewal contingent on
the availability of funding. The successful applicant should possess a
strong background in ecological modeling with expertise in one or more of
the following areas: terrestrial ecology, plant ecology, wildlife,
biogeochemistry, and/or computer programming. The candidate will need to
possess a Ph.D. at the time of appointment or have completed all PhD.
requirements and be awaiting graduation.

For more information about this position, please contact:
Dr. Eugénie Euskirchen (, who is the supervisor for this
position, or Dr. Brad Griffith (, who will also work with
the successful applicant.
