Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Climate Change Ecology.

We anticipate hiring a Postdoctoral Research Fellow to 
integrate data from a large-scale snow manipulation 
experiment with Life Table Response Experiment models 
(LTREs), and Dynamic Global Vegetation Models (DGVMs). 
 The overall goal of the project is to better understand 
how climate change will impact plant recruitment and 
ecotonal shifts for snow-dominated arid ecosystems.  The 
successful candidate will work in collaboration with 
Michael E. Loik (UC Santa Cruz), Daniel F. Doak (Univ. 
Wyoming) and Ronald P. Neilson (US Forest Service, PNW 
Research Station).  The succesful candidate will be based 
in Santa Cruz, CA; the position will require extensive 
travel between Santa Cruz, Mammoth Lakes CA, Laramie WY, 
and Corvallis OR. Experience with programming in C 
required.  Prior experience in population biology, 
biogeographic modeling, or climate change ecophysiology 
would be valuable.  The earliest anticipated start date is 
1 July 2007, and could potentially continue for 2.5 years. 
 To apply please send an application letter with 
professional interests, research experience and goals, CV, 
reprints, and names, addresses, and E-mail addresses of 
three references to Dr. Michael E. Loik, Dept. of 
Environmental Studies, University of California, Santa 
Cruz, CA 95064. The position is contingent upon final 
approval of funding.
