Position Title:
Postdoc Research Associate- Ecology


Appointment Type:
Post Doc/Trainee


Job Description:
Summary of Duties and Responsibilities:

The MacroSystems Ecology Lab (https://www.clu-lab.com/) in the Department of Ecology, Evolution, & Organismal Biology at Iowa State University has an opening for a postdoc scholar in Ecological Modeling.   We are seeking an individual to work on modeling representation and quantification of the coupled biogeochemical and hydrological cycles. The successful candidate will participate in an interdisciplinary research team to investigate the natural and anthropogenic impacts on crop production, carbon and nutrient coupling, and land-air exchange of greenhouse gases, by using ecological big data and modeling approaches. The postdoc scholar is expected to independently develop and implement the spatially explicit process-based land ecosystem model for assessment at regional and global scales. The specific duties include cross-scale data synthesis, model improvement, simulation, data-model integration, and application of machine learning or artificial intelligence. The postdoc will be encouraged to pursue new research direction (e.g., participate in development of research proposals), and will help manage the lab and interact with graduate and undergraduate students.

Salary commensurate with training and research experience plus health benefit, mentoring by and collaboration with senior research personnel from a multidisciplinary team, office space and computer facilities, and coverage of research and related travel expenses.
