Postdoc: Ecosystem Response to Global Environmental Change
The University at Buffalo (UB), State University of New York Department of Geography invites applicants for a postdoctoral scholar to join a vibrant international research collaboration to investigate the role of changing climate in altered ecosystem dynamics (disturbance and/or phenology) in the Cape Floristic Region of South Africa. Recent climate change has led to altered fire frequency and ecosystem recovery (http://intl.pnas.org/content/112/29/9058.abstract), but the mechanisms of these changes are not clear. The selected scholar will build spatio-temporal statistical models of ecosystem function integrating decades of plant community dynamics, remotely sensed images (especially MODIS and LANDSAT), and historical weather data. For more information about lab activities, see adamwilson.us. Opportunities for teaching and field work near Cape Town, South Africa are available if desired.
