There’s a very interesting opportunity for two-year postdoctoral fellows through a partnership between the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) and the National Ecological Observing Network (NEON). The aim of the program is to build new capacity for the understanding of the interface between climate change and the impacts on terrestrial ecosystems, including the carbon and water cycles.
“Determining the evolution of ecosystems and the services they provide to human societies, the rate and magnitude of climate change, and the severity of climate change impacts during the next century are of increasing importance. The complexity of such interactions, and their importance for environmental quality and human health and well-being, argues for a multidisciplinary approach and setting for training the next generation of climate and ecological scientists. To this end, a postdoctoral program in which fellows are trained and conduct research in ecology, water and carbon cycle science, modeling, observations, and atmospheric science is being implemented.”
The U.S. Geological Survey is working with NCAR and NEON on this initiative as the lead Federal agency for providing integrated information on ecosystem carbon sequestration for decision support and ecosystem management.
