1. Four PhD positions in Canada: High-latitude land surface-atmosphere interactions and biogeochemistry

We are looking for four highly motivated individuals for PhD positions focusing on changes in land surface-atmosphere interactions (PhD1 and PhD2), and terrestrial-aquatic linkages (PhD 3 and PhD4) in the northwestern Canadian boreal zone where hydrological regimes undergo rapid changes due to permafrost thaw. Funding packages for these four PhD positions include four-year stipends ($21,000/year), and travel and field expenses. Additional sources of funding include university fellowships, tuition remission (international students), and research and teaching assistantships. Total value of funding packages will depend on position and applicant, but will be generous for highly qualified applicants. Additional funding can be applied for through external sources (e.g., Natural Sciences and Engineering and Research Council of Canada).

3. Postdoctoral Researcher - Siberian Primary Boreal Forests

Woods Hole Research Center seeks a post-doctoral researcher to co-lead an investigation into Russia’s primary forests. The successful candidate will work closely with the lead scientist and collaborators to assess the impact of land use, wildfires, and other disturbances on the spatial distribution, carbon cycling, and ecosystem services of primary boreal forests in Siberia, as well as provide policy recommendations for relevant national and international arenas. The position requires advanced geospatial modeling skills, knowledge of forest disturbance dynamics, and ability to lead a collaborative research project. The successful candidate will join a team of researchers working across the boreal-arctic zone at a variety of scales.

Responsibilities:

  • Analyze the loss of primary boreal forests in Siberia by integrating field observations, remote sensing, and other geospatial data sets using a number of approaches.

  • Conduct a full spatial carbon accounting of primary forest conversion and degradation due to wildfires, logging, infrastructure development, resource extraction, and other land use change.

  • Working with project collaborators, produce updated primary forest maps for Siberia and other boreal regions, assess ecosystem services from Siberian primary forests, and provide policy recommendations related to their preservation value.

  • Work in a highly collaborative environment to analyze, synthesize, present, and publish results.

Qualifications and Experience:

  • Ph.D. (granted or expected soon) in Environmental Sciences, Geography, Forestry, Earth System Science, Ecology, or a related discipline.

  • Experience with manipulating large geospatial data sets and statistical modeling.

  • Knowledge of boreal ecosystem science, disturbance dynamics, and carbon cycling.

  • Ability to think and work across disciplines and scales.

  • Excellent interpersonal, teamwork, written and verbal communication skills.

  • Knowledge of ecosystem service frameworks, international climate change policy, and Russian sociopolitical dynamics is preferred.

  • Proficiency in Russian language is desirable but not required.
