carbon dynamics of ecosystems in Alaska.

A PhD degree (already received or awaiting receipt with all requirements
fulfilled) is required, as is training in earth system science or
biogeochemistry is required. Research experience in modeling vegetation
dynamics or biogeochemistry is also required, and skills in data
analysis and computer programming are preferred.
