Position Description Harvard University invites applications for a postdoctoral position in terrestrial ecosystem dynamics in the laboratory of Professor Paul Moorcroft http://www.oeb.harvard.edu/faculty/moorcroft/. The successful candidate will be involved in a research project examining regional variation in forest carbon uptake and storage via assimilation of lidar-derived measurements of forest structure into a process-based terrestrial biosphere model. The lidar-constrained model will be used to quantify the contributions of different forest ecosystems to mitigating atmospheric CO2 levels over the coming decades under different climate scenarios.
