Next Generation Ecosystem Experiments—Tropics: Tropical forest responses to a changing climate
Because tropical forests recycle more CO2 than any other biome, they play a major role in Earth’s carbon cycle, which has implications for climate change. And while they have been studied extensively, there are still critical gaps in our knowledge about them, gaps that contribute to uncertainties in Earth system models and predictions of future climates.
Post-doctoral Research Associate Position - Earth System Modeling
The Environmental Sciences Division and the Climate Change Science Institute at Oak Ridge National Laboratory has one postdoctoral position available immediately. We seek a team-oriented candidate that is able to help design, execute and test a cutting-edge Earth System Model. Candidates are being recruited to support projects to improve the representation of nutrient cycling and microbial activities in Earth System Models.
Senior Scientist Positions Available
The Climate Change Science Institute at Oak Ridge National Laboratory is recruiting two senior research scientists. One position is in the Impacts, Adaptation, and Vulnerability group and the other is for a data scientist in the Data Integration, Dissemination, and Informatics group.
