Postdoctoral Researcher – Arctic land-surface modeler
Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL), New Mexico, United States
Start reviewing process: 30 April 2021

I wanted to let you know that we are looking for a postdoctoral candidate to study the rate and patterns of landscape change in the Arctic and its impact and feedbacks on carbon and nutrient fluxes in Arctic landscapes.

We encourage anyone interested in developing and implementing new representations of permafrost hydrology in watershed and earth system land models. Our team advances understanding of the interactions and impacts of changing snow, vegetation, permafrost and hydrological conditions using direct and remotely sensed observations, including drone-based acquisitions, to test and inform our models of Arctic landscape change. If you are excited about working on science to understand the changing Arctic, please apply!

The Los Alamos National Lab is a great place to further your academic and professional goals. ~Half of the postdocs at LANL decide to continue their career here, and ~a quarter move on to academic positions. LANL offers competitive salaries and great benefits packages. Living in the “Land of Enchantment” is also exciting, with tons of trails for hiking, mountaineering, climbing, and mountain biking as well as ski resorts all around. Santa Fe offers unique cultural activities, while Los Alamos has a “small town” feel if you prefer.

If you could please forward this posting to your groups, colleagues, or students who might interested in the position, that would be great. Please follow the application instructions found here: or email and with any questions.
