Description
The Fridley Lab at Clemson University is seeking applications for a postdoctoral researcher with expertise in forest ecology and statistical modeling to help lead a suite of projects at the interface of tree physiology and demography. The successful applicant will apply new theory on whole-plant carbon dynamics to develop models that integrate tree responses to climate and biotic interactions, using longitudinal datasets from the U.S. and Europe. Specific projects could include 1) comparison of individual-based forest models (e.g., SORTIE) in the Eastern and Western U.S. in the context of varying roles of climate, fire, pests, and regional diversity (in collaboration with the University of Denver); 2) analysis of long-term vegetation trends in Great Smoky Mountains National Park (USA) with respect to climatic and biotic factors; and 3) comparative demographic analysis of woody forest invaders in their home and away ranges in France and the U.S. (in collaboration with the Université de Picardie Jules Verne). Funding is available for two years with annual reappointment, with the potential for extension pending additional grant support. Start date is flexible and could begin as early as December 1, 2022. To apply, visit https://apply.interfolio.com/114621. Queries can be addressed to Jason Fridley (fridley@clemson.edu).
Qualifications
Applicants must have a Ph.D. in an ecological field at the start of appointment; demonstrated research productivity and mentoring experiences; and an excellent working knowledge of R. Preference will be given to those applicants with experience in large dataset manipulation, forest demographic modeling, or tree physiology.
