The Climate Sciences Department of the Earth Sciences Division has an 
exciting opportunity for a postdoctoral researcher to quantify and 
reduce uncertainties in the carbon cycle and other biogeochemical 
feedbacks in global models of the terrestrial ecosystem. The work will 
be part of the DOE-sponsored Climate Science for a Sustainable Energy 
Future (CSSEF) project. This project seeks to deliver Earth system 
models that are genuinely predictive at the regional level.  Developing 
the scientific and computational capacity to produce these simulations 
will require transformative rather than evolutionary change.  The 
postdoc will join a team to accelerate the incorporation of new process 
data and observations into climate models with a focus on developing new 
methods for rapid evaluation of the calibrated models and incorporating 
formal methods for quantifying simulation uncertainty.

This position offers an excellent environment for working with a highly 
skilled interdisciplinary team and will require strong motivation and 
excellent oral and written communication skills. Lawrence Berkley 
National Laboratory is a renowned center of scientific expertise in many 
facets of climate-related fundamental and applied science.
