Postdoctoral Research Position

Ted Schuur- Northern Arizona University

Flagstaff, Arizona

Job Type Student / postdoc
Salary Details Commensurate with experience, and full health care benefits are provided for individuals and families.

We are seeking to fill several Postdoctoral research positions in the Center for Ecosystem Science and Society at Northern Arizona University. The successful candidate will
participate in research focused on the fate of permafrost carbon in a warming world. The research spans both field work and data synthesis, including a primary field location near Denali National Park and Preserve, Alaska.

The experimental research foci are (1) net ecosystem carbon exchange (eddy covariance) from a gradient of sites undergoing permafrost thaw, and (2) coupled radiocarbon measurements to detect loss of old carbon. Data from this site will be actively integrated by the candidates with a larger network of carbon flux measurements to develop an updateable time series of ecosystem exchange measurements across the permafrost region. The postdocs will spend the field season in Alaska, with winters spent in Flagstaff, AZ on data synthesis and networking. One postdoc position will be focused on field activities; second postdoc will focus on data synthesis and analysis.


Please send cover letter including the names/contact of 2-3 references and CV to: Dr. Ted Schuur; ted.schuur@nau.edu . Rolling application review starting Sept 15, 2023; position
open until filled and much later start dates are possible. There is flexibility for this position to start work remotely if needed, but ultimately it is not remote-only. Hiring
through NAU HR Job ID #607450
