[Postdoc position] Effects of elevated carbon dioxide on ecosystem C and N dynamics in the Mojave Desert

If you’re looking for a quantitatively oriented postdoc in ecology this position with Kiona Ogle is a great opportunity.

Ecosystem C and N Dynamics and Synthesis: A two-year post-doctoral position is available to work on a multi investigator, DOE-funded project that examines the effects of elevated carbon dioxide on ecosystem C and N dynamics in the Mojave Desert. The post-doctoral research associate will be responsible for synthesizing and modeling existing data from the 10-year Nevada Desert FACE project in a collaborative project between Washington State University, the University of Wyoming, University of Nevada Las Vegas, and the University of Nevada Reno. A primary goal of the synthesis work is to explore the combined effects of elevated carbon dioxide and precipitation variability on the functioning of arid ecosystems. Data are to be synthesized within a hierarchical Bayesian framework that facilitates simultaneous coupling of diverse data sources and mechanistic models. To apply please email an application letter with professional interests, research experience and goals, CV, reprints, and names, addresses, and E-mail addresses of three references to Dr. R. Dave Evans (rdevans@wsu.edu) and Dr. Kiona Ogle (kogle@uwyo.edu). Review of applications will begin 1 October and will continue until the position is filled.

I can’t vouch for her collaborator, but I’ve worked with Kiona and she is smart, has a good scientific philosophy, and is a patient & hard working collaborator – all goods signs for a postdoctoral mentor.
