Vacancies 15 November 2022

Postdoc position at Ghent University, Belgium for vegetation modelling
We have a very exciting postdoc position opening in our group at Ghent University, Belgium. The researcher will work on a 4-year project aiming at improving vegetation models in African tropical forests. These forests play indeed a critical mitigating role in our changing Earth system but little is known about their sensitivity and their resilience to climate change and increasing anthropogenic pressure. The general ambition of this project is to contribute to closing the Congo Basin forest data gap and apply the unique datasets we have collected to this day to develop a next-generation Land Surface Model, designed to project the fate of African tropical forests under contrasting climate and development scenarios. To do so, we are therefore looking for a motivated candidate with a PhD degree in a relevant field (e.g. Biology, Physics, Environmental sciences) and excellent programming skills. * Starting date: Flexible but ideally around January 202
All relevant information (and application details) is available here.
Postdoctoral Researcher Computational Modelling of Soil Ecosystems, Barcelona
This positions are core funded by EMBL, and reflect our new commitment to expand our research themes beyond the lab, out into the various ecosystems and environments that make up the planet (read here for more information).The project aims to develop theoretical and computational models of dryland soil ecosystems, especially in relation to mesocosm experiments. In particular aiming to address the design and effects of synthetic biology-based interventions to mitigate the impacts of desertification caused by global warming. The research will require a multi-scale approach to ecosystem organization with particular emphasis on understanding the impact of modified strains in both soil microbiome dynamics and vegetation cover patterns in space and time. Closing date: 23 November 2022

Postdoctoral Fellow, Earth and Environmental Sciences Area 
Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory opens a position for a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Earth and Environmental Sciences Area. This position will support the collaborative project “Silicate Rock Amendments for Reduced Methane Emissions and Increased Carbon Storage in Rice Fields.” Postdoc activities will include conducting lab experiments with rock amendments and applying multicomponent reactive transport modeling to problems related to enhanced weathering. The overall goal of the project is to develop deployable reduced and negative emissions strategies to improve our climate future. 
Applications are due by November 15th (or until filled). More details related to this position are provided in the link. 
Senior Hydrologist (Field Hydrologist - Natural Resource Specialist 4)
The Oregon Water Resources Department (OWRD) seeks to hire a full-time Senior Hydrologist (Field Hydrologist - Natural Resource Specialist 4) to design, implement, and coordinate hydrologic surface water studies throughout Oregon. In this position, you will scope and perform hydrologic studies ranging from reach- to basin- scale. These analyses provide a scientific foundation for water planning, distribution, and management decisions across Oregon, and help identify effective water supply solutions that OWRD and the public can pursue. You will be a member of the Technical Services Division, reporting to the Manager of the Surface Water Section. Consider joining our team and advancing our mission to practice and promote responsible water management in Oregon! Deadline 10/27/2022 Learn more about the WRD Link
Assistant Professor position in Climate Risk and Decision-Making – Penn State University
For this position, we seek a colleague who can conduct transdisciplinary research on decision-making for climate risks, addressing considerations of vulnerability, resilience, equity, and impacts to critical infrastructure and vulnerable communities. We are especially interested in applicants who integrate various methodological approaches as they are applied to climate risk, policy, and societal impacts. Attractive areas of interest are broadly defined and include but are not limited to: climatic and geophysical drivers of risk; climate hazards and risks (wildfires/storms/floods/sea level rise/coastal hazards); decision analytics for risk management and adaptation.
The appointment could begin as early as July 1, 2023. Review of applications will begin on December 15, 2022 and continue until the position is filled.
