Title Postdoctoral Fellow in Terrestrial Ecosystem Dynamics School Faculty of Arts and Sciences Department/Area OEB Position Description Harvard University invites applications for a postdoctoral position in terrestrial ecosystem dynamics in the laboratory of Professor Paul Moorcroft The successful candidate will be involved in a research project examining regional variation in forest carbon uptake and storage via assimilation of lidar-derived measurements of forest structure into a process-based terrestrial biosphere model. The lidar-constrained model will be used to quantify the contributions of different forest ecosystems to mitigating atmospheric CO2 levels over the coming decades under different climate scenarios. Basic Qualifications Candidates should have a strong background in ecosystem ecology, terrestrial biosphere modeling, or a related field. Applicants with previous experience with terrestrial ecosystem or land-surface models and/or lidar measurements of forest structure are strongly preferred. Additional Qualifications Special Instructions Candidates should email the following materials to Erin Ciccone (): – Cover letter outlining your interests and suitability for the position. – Curriculum vitae – Up to three examples of published papers – Names and contact information of three references. Application review will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled.
