Post-Doctoral Scholar ($$$) at the University of Wisconsin-Madison with Dr. Ankur Desai to study land-atmosphere interactions and run a new NSF large-scale field experiment. LAST APPLY: 17 August 2018, and Until filled. The NSF field experiment, The Chequamegon Heterogeneous Ecosystem Energy-balance Study Enabled by a High-density Extensive Array of Detectors (CHEESEHEAD19), in Northern Wisconsin. In this two-year position available immediately, the post-doctoral scholar, under mentoring of Prof. Ankur Desai and the CHEESHEAD PIs, will conduct independent research on feedbacks between surface heterogeneity and the atmosphere with high-density (20 tower) eddy covariance flux tower observations, in situ ground based remote sensing and LiDAR , large eddy simulation (LES), hyperspectral airborne remote sensing, and/or advance flux processing and scaling methods. Additionally, the scholar will assist in logistics for the CHEESEHEAD19 campaign including residence during the summer 2019 (3-4 months) at a UW field station in Northern Wisconsin.Additional information about CHEESHEAD19 can be found at: http://flux.aos.wisc.edu/twiki/bin/view/Main/CHEESEHEAD19. PhD required at time of appointment. Start date is negotiable, but we prefer someone who can start by October. Additional Information contact Dr. Desai directly. To apply, please send a cover letter, CV, and names of three references to Ankur Desai, desai@aos.wisc.edu

Post-Doctoral Scholar ($$) at the Climate and Ecosystem Sciences Division at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab). LAST APPLY: Until Filled. PhD required at time of appointment, 1-year position with potential for extension. Aim is to help understand the observed changes in extreme weather: the Calibrated and Systematic Characterization, Attribution, and Detection of Extremes (CASCADE) project.  Research within CASCADE advances our understanding of climate extremes and enhances our ability to attribute and project changes in extremes. This position calls for an individual with experience in extreme weather/climate phenomena, climate modeling, and potentially machine learning methods. Application Details and Contact Info

Postdoctoral Scholar ($$) Position Available in the Department of Environmental, Science & Policy Management at the Biometeorology Laboratory at U.C. Berkeley with Dr. David Baldocchi. LAST APPLY: Until Filled, START DATE: Dec 1, 2018. The position involves the day-to-day responsibility for a methane, carbon dioxide and energy flux measurement study in the Bay Area, 50 miles east of Berkeley.  The candidate will be responsible in acquiring and processing eddy covariance data, maintaining and calibrating instruments, field measurements of soil/plant status, the analysis, the interpretation of field data, modeling trace gas fluxes at the local and regional scales and writing of scientific papers.  The successful candidate will work with a team of technicians, other postdocs and graduate students. Candidates must have a PhD equivalent in Micrometeorology,  Biometeorology, Environmental Engineering, Biogeochemistry or related fields by appointment start date.  Candidates fluent in database software and a computer language such as Matlab, C or Python, be expert in Geographical Information Systems software and have prior experience or training in measuring carbon, water and energy fluxes between the biosphere and atmosphere are most desirable.  Contact Dr. Baldocchi for futher details Baldocchi@berkeley.edu
