Earth Science Postdoctoral Scholar - 97466
Division: CE-Climate & Ecosystems
Lawrence Berkeley National Lab's (LBNL) Climate & Ecosystems Division has an opening for an Earth Science Postdoc, advancing the quantification of bedrock and soil physical properties from local to watershed scale, and the understanding of their impact on the ecosystem functioning, including plant health and survival, ground water storage and export, and downstream water quantity and quality.
You will be associated with Berkeley Lab's Watershed Function Scientific Focus Area (SFA) project (watershed.lb.gov). This project focuses on developing a predictive understanding of how mountainous watersheds retain and release water, nutrients, carbon, and metals. In particular, the SFA is developing understanding and approaches to measure and predict how droughts, early snowmelt, and other perturbations impact downstream water availability and biogeochemical cycling at episodic to decadal timescales. The project includes field and numerical experiments in a mountainous watershed in the Upper Colorado River Basin.
In this exciting role, you will work on improving the characterization of bedrock and soil properties that critically impact plant functioning, subsurface weathering processes, water storage, and downstream water quantity and quality. You will collaborate within a team to integrate the quantification of subsurface properties with hydro-biogeochemical measurements and remote sensing products for advancing the understanding of the impact of subsurface structure on various hydro-biogeochemical processes, and/or for improving the spatiotemporal resolution and coverage of the developed data products.
