Postdoc, Forest Landscape Modeling of Climate Change Scenarios , University of Wisconsin-Madison
Opportunity to join a growing lab group using simulation modeling techniques to address forest landscape change at a range of scales in the Northern Lake States. This is a cluster of ongoing projects. This group of PIs, postdocs and grad students is examining scenarios of climate change and interaction of disturbances including harvesting differences due to ownership patterns, bioenergy harvesting, wind, fire and climate change.
In this specific component, we are addressing changes in forest composition, habitat, and carbon dynamics under a range of climate change scenarios. A companion group in the project (Sara Hotchkiss Lab) is acquiring pollen and charcoal data to use past change in informing the modeling. Funding is from the Wisconsin DNR Research, climate change project. There are opportunities for creative interaction among the diverse group interests, with our collaborators on campus, the Northern Institute of Applied Carbon Science, and US Forest Service Northern Research Station. This project will use our LANDIS-II forest landscape and ecosystem change model. Experience with forest ecosystems, GIS, landscape modeling, and the Century model is highly desirable.
Desired start is as soon as available. Funding period is up to 2 years.
Open and applications evaluated until filled. To apply, please send via email a letter, complete cv, and list of three references to <firstname.lastname@example.org>. UW-Madison is an EEO/AA employer.
