Dear global change researchers:

We have a multidisciplinary position open for a scientist to work in the
area of global change, more specifically in the area of crop/ecosystem
modeling. Please post this announcement and bring it to the attention of
qualified candidates.
Thank you.
Bruce Kimball

Research Plant Physiologist, Research Agronomist, Research Ecologist, or
Research Soil Scientist. A permanent, full-time scientist position is
at the USDA, Agricultural Research Service, U.S. Water Conservation
Laboratory, Phoenix, Arizona. In support of the ARS Global Change
Program, he/she will serve as member of a team seeking to determine the
likely effects of global change on agricultural productivity and water
resources in the future. Besides the basic requirements of a degree or
specialized experience in one of the four disciplines or a closely
field, desired skills include: (1) expertise and computer fluency in the
modeling of crop and rangeland growth as affected by environmental
conditions, including elevated CO2 concentrations, and by farm
strategies, (2) expertise in aggregating and scaling results from
experimental plots to field and regional scales, (3) expertise in
conducting experiments designed to determine effects of environmental
parameters, including elevated CO2 and temperature, on plant growth and
carbon sequestration, and (4) proficiency in measurement techniques
to evaluate plant responses in such experiments. The appointment will be
the GS-11 to GS-13 grade levels (Salary range from $45,285 to $83,902.00
