Our joint research group is looking for a post-doctoral researcher to study the North American Monsoon (NAM) signal in tree-ring isotope records. This two-year position (April 2016-March 2018) is funded by a NSF grant focused on Processes and Patterns in The North American Monsoon Macrosystem.
The post-doctoral researcher will be mentored within our joint research group (PIs Russel Monson, Valerie Trouet, and David Moore) and will be housed in the UA Laboratory of Tree-Ring Research in Tucson, Arizona, one of the most influential dendrochronology laboratories in the world. The post-doctoral researcher will collaborate closely with two other post-doctoral researchers in the framework of the NAM Macrosystem project and we thus aim to form a strong team of early career researchers to jointly advance our understanding of the NAM Ecosystem.
The ideal candidate would have these attributes and skills
Interest in pursuing a career as a research scientist;
Technical expertise in geochemical (preferably tree-ring) isotope analysis;
Strong laboratory, analytical, and teamwork skills;
A proven publication record in peer-reviewed scientific journals.
