1. Postdoctoral Position Available
Study of Environmental Arctic Change (SEARCH)
University of Alaska Fairbanks/Northern Arizona University
Fairbanks, Alaska

The Study of Environmental Arctic Change (SEARCH) program is seeking to
fill a Postdoctoral research position based at the International Arctic
Research Center, University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF).

The fellow will assist in a National Science Foundation funded project:
Study of Environmental Arctic Change (SEARCH). Within SEARCH, the
Permafrost Action Team seeks to document and understand how degradation
in near-surface permafrost will affect Arctic and global systems using
synthesis science. In particular this position will examine Arctic
impacts of degrading permafrost on fish, wildlife, ecosystems (services)
and/or human infrastructure.

The foci of the position are to conduct new synthesis research on one of
several topics important for understanding the impacts of degrading
permafrost and to assist with the coordination of a permafrost synthesis
network addressing this topic. The researcher will be expected to
organize and maintain data sets synthesizing permafrost research, as
well as participate in data analysis and writing publications. In
addition, the researcher will help plan meetings, engage stakeholders
and coordinate other activities to build and maintain a national and
international research network. In addition to expertise in permafrost,
ecosystems, or global change biology, candidates with experience
connecting permafrost issues to community sustainability, climate
impacts on native/indigenous peoples, and/or Arctic infrastructure and
resource development are especially encouraged to apply. Position is
located at UAF with research visits to NAU. Experience with data
synthesis and/or data management will be helpful. This is a benefited
position and salary is commensurate with experience.

This position is funded by the Alaska Climate Science Center in
collaboration with Northern Arizona University (NAU).
