The Study of Environmental Arctic Change (SEARCH) announces ARCTIC ALERTS 2016, a media roundtable in which Arctic researchers will outline the unprecedented changes taking place in the Arctic environment and the local and global consequences. This year continues the recent trend of remarkable anomalies in the Arctic, and the presentations and discussion will focus on their connections to global changes.
The SEARCH Permafrost Action Team 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.
