- Postdoctoral Researcher
The Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences (CIRES) in Boulder, Colorado is encouraging applications for a Postdoctoral Associate.
The successful candidate will work with developers of a new laser methane sensor to develop and implement biosphere-atmosphere permafrost methane flux modeling using measurements in the arctic. Climate change has important effects at high-latitudes and Arctic communities have strong interests in understanding the scales and impacts of amplified warming. In Alaska, CH4 emitted from thermokarst lakes has the potential to increase the radiative effect. The project that the successful candidate will join brings together Alaskan communities with social and natural scientists to examine changes in inland thermokarst lake environments and effects on Yukon River watershed villages and global climate.
