Postdoc, Forest Landscape Modeling of Climate Change Scenarios

University of Wisconsin-Madison

Opportunity to join a growing lab group using simulation modeling techniques
to address forest landscape change at a range of scales in the Northern Lake
States. This is a cluster of ongoing projects. This group of PIs, postdocs
and grad students is examining scenarios of climate change and interaction
of disturbances including harvesting differences due to ownership patterns,
bioenergy harvesting, wind, fire and climate change. In this specific
component, we are addressing changes in forest composition, habitat, and
carbon dynamics under a range of climate change scenarios. A companion group
in the project (Sara Hotchkiss Lab) is acquiring pollen and charcoal data to
use past change in informing the modeling. Funding is from the Wisconsin DNR
Research, climate change project. There are opportunities for creative
interaction among the diverse group interests, with our collaborators on
campus, the Northern Institute of Applied Carbon Science, and US Forest
Service Northern Research Station. This project will use our LANDIS-II
forest landscape and ecosystem change model. Experience with forest
ecosystems, GIS, landscape modeling, and the Century model is highly

Desired start is as soon as available. Funding period is up to 2 years. Open
and applications evaluated until filled. To apply, please send via email a
letter, complete cv, and list of three references to <>.
