Postdoc Positions Available

Hayes, Daniel J.

Position Title: Postdoctoral Research Associate, Permafrost Carbon-Climate Modeling

Position Description:

Two post-doctoral research associate positions are available within the Climate Change Science Institute and the Environmental Sciences Division of Oak Ridge National Laboratory. This announcement targets ecosystem scientists with the necessary experience and interest in contributing to a research project addressing the pan-arctic scale permafrost carbon feedback to global climate, recently sponsored by the Department of Energy’s Biological and Environmental Research (BER) program. The project will involve data synthesis and scaling components, including an emphasis on remote sensing analyses, toward an improved representation of permafrost carbon dynamics within land surface components of Earth System Model frameworks. The successful candidates will join a multidisciplinary team of investigators, leveraged by collaborative efforts with other DOE, NASA, NSF and university-based projects, who are investigating how permafrost degradation in a warming Arctic will affect feedbacks to the climate system.

 Qualifications:

A PhD in ecology or related discipline is required of this position. The ideal candidate will have a particular expertise in either one, or both, of a) remote sensing applications in ecosystem analysis and b) ecosystem carbon cycle modeling. Candidates with strong numerical and analytical skills, along with proficiency in scientific programming, are preferred.

To Apply:

For full consideration, candidates should submit their application by 1 July, 2012. We anticipate each position to be two-to-three years in duration. Applications are to be submitted on-line at http://www.orau.org/ornl/postdocs/ornl-pd-pm/description.aspx?JobId=10176. For more information, contact Daniel Hayes ([hidden email]).

Visiting lecturer position available

Porter, Philip R

We have a vacancy for a Visiting Lecturer in Physical Geography at the University of Hertfordshire to cover for a member of staffs’ temporary secondment (until the end of August 2013) to another area of the University.

The position would be particularly suitable for someone who is soon to or has recently completed a PhD in any area of physical geography, as work would be on part-time basis rather than a full-time fractional appointment – time would therefore be available for writing up of a thesis or writing up research from a submitted thesis.

 

Teaching would be mainly at undergraduate level and topics that would need to be covered would include: geomorphology, hydrology, biogeography as well as field and analytical techniques. etc. There may also be opportunities for collaborative research with existing colleagues within the Division of Geography and Environmental Sciences.

The position is for approximately 120 hours teaching per year at Visiting Lecturer rates of £36 per hour.

 

Interested parties should contact Dr Richard Southern ([hidden email]), Head of the Division of Geography and Environmental Sciences, who can provide full details.

Many thanks, Phil Porter.
