Postdoc position in global change ecology at Carnegie Institution/Stanford University (USA)

The Department of Global Ecology of the Carnegie Institution for Science has
an immediate opening for a full-time post-doctoral researcher to work with
the Jasper Ridge Global Change Experiment, located on the campus of Stanford
University. The Jasper Ridge Global Change Experiment is a long-term
manipulation experiment to explore the responses of grassland ecosystems to
realistic global changes, including warming, elevated atmospheric CO2,
altered precipitation, and N deposition. In its current phase (2009-2014),
the project is examining the interaction of global changes, restoration,
disturbance by wildfire, and resistance to invasives. The person who fills
this position can be an expert in any topic related to the work, but the
emphasis at this point is on analysis and synthesis of long-term trends,
especially trends in plant community composition and dynamics. We are
looking for an individual with strong skills in time series and community
analysis, as well as a solid grounding in global-change ecology. The
supervisors for this position will be Chris Field (Carnegie Institution),
Tad Fukami (Stanford University), and Nona Chiariello (Stanford University).

Minimum educational qualification is a PhD in biology or a related field.
The position is for one year. It is potentially renewable.
