Postdoctoral Research Position Available in Ecosystem Carbon Cycle Studies
A postdoctoral position is available for a person with a PhD in
Biology, Biogeochemistry, Ecology, Forest Science or related
disciplines. The successful applicant will take part in field work,
data analysis, and report writing for studies of ecosystem carbon
dioxide and water vapor exchange, in grassland and forest vegetation
of Alberta, Canada with some possibilities for studies in South
America. The work uses long-term eddy correlation flux measurements,
combined with stable isotope measurements and detailed ecological
measurements of important parameters such as leaf area index, above-
and below-ground biomass and productivity.
Our objective is to understand quantitatively how and why ecosystems
take up or release carbon, on time scales from hours to several
years, and to determine responses to climate change and to
disturbance such as fire, forest harvest, and management treatments.
Candidates do not need to be experienced in all the techniques (eddy
covariance, stables isotopes, biometry, etc.) that we currently use.
We can provide training to highly motivated individuals with
background in some of the above methods and techniques.
Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada is located near several national parks in
the Rocky Mountains (Banff, Waterton, Glacier) about 200 km south of
Calgary, Alberta and approximately 100 km north of the United States
(Montana) border. The area has abundant opportunities for outdoor
recreation in the Rocky Mountains, the native prairie and badland
regions of Alberta. The cost of living is low and the quality of life
