Posted on Jun 4, 2015 by in The OFI Blog |

The Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute’s (STRI) Center for Tropical  Forest Science – Forest Global Earth Observatory (CTFS – ForestGEO) is currently accepting applications for a postdoctoral fellow to join a collaborative research effort to reduce model uncertainty associated with projecting the response of tropical forest ecosystems to global change.


POSITION TITLE: Postdoctoral Fellowship – Tropical Forest Responses to Water


The successful candidate will work with Dr. S. Joseph Wright and Dr. Stuart Davies, to synthesize existing data on the water relations of tropical forest plants and to collect new data to relate individual performance to rainfall gradients in central Panama. The planned research is part of NGEE – Tropics, a multidisciplinary, multi-institutional, DOE-funded project seeking to improve the representation of tropical forest ecosystems in Earth System Models.


The Center will begin reviewing applications on July 15, 2015.
