Postdoc position: spatial models to scale up forest dynamics from sites to landscapes
This postdoc will model plant population and community dynamics over large areas using a suite of computational and mathematical approaches. The position will be based in the Caughlin lab at Boise State University, and the research will be applied to forecast land management scenarios in rangeland ecosystems, including restoration of sagebrush steppe in the Intermountain West and tropical reforestation in Latin American cattle pastures. Our lab is focused on developing novel ways to link ecological and remotely sensed data across multiple scales, from individual plants to million-hectare management units. We are looking for someone that brings expertise in either ecological modeling or remote sensing techniques.
Work will involve:
- Processing large ecological and remote sensing datasets
- Applying quantitative models to analyze spatial data
- Preparing papers for publication in peer-reviewed international journals
Start date is flexible, but no later than January, 2018.
