Job description

Position Summary: 
We are seeking a highly-motivated postdoctoral fellow to join our biometeorology research team at Indiana University (IU) – Bloomington. Our work is focused on explaining ecosystem carbon and water cycle dynamics using a range of approaches and tools, including eddy covariance flux measurements, remotely sensed indices of vegetation functioning, and observations of key components of belowground element cycling. The work of the postdoctoral fellow will be focused on linkages between vegetation cover, ecosystem water use, and energy balance. The successful applicant should have experience in combining observational and modeling approaches to relate trends in ecosystem carbon and water cycling to biophysical drivers; previous experience using remotely-sensed indices of plant state and function is required.

The postdoctoral fellow will be supervised by Dr. Kim Novick (School of Public and Environmental Affairs), with ample opportunities to collaborate with other environmental science faculty on the IU-Bloomington campus. The postdoctoral fellow will be based in Bloomington, Indiana, but should be willing to travel up for field work and project meetings. Funding is available for 18 months with a strong likelihood of extension based on successful job performance.

We are especially interested in applicants with an interest in contributing in ways that enhance diversity, equity, and inclusion; applicants are encouraged to address these topics in their cover letter.

Indiana University is an equal employment and affirmative action employer and a provider of ADA services. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to age, ethnicity, color, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation or identity, national origin, disability status or protected veteran status.
