We are seeking a post-doc to join a USDA-AFRI project investigating the impacts of increasing climate variability on rangeland production across the western United States. The position, based in Peter Adler’s research group at Utah State University, will involve collaboration with Katie Suding (University of Colorado), Brady Allred (University of Montana), and John Bradford (USGS). The post-doc will work with long-term, remotely sensed time-series data to characterize the sensitivity of primary production to interannual variability in weather and soil moisture. Patterns of sensitivity will be compared across five rangeland ecoregions, and across areas of contrasting vegetation composition within those ecoregions. The position is funded for two years at a salary of $48,000 per year and can begin as early as May 1, 2018.
