A postdoctoral position is currently available at the Institute of Arctic Biology (IAB) at the University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF). This project entails projecting changes in biomass and digestibility of caribou forages to gain a better understanding of how these changes may affect the fat and protein dynamics of coastal and upland calving caribou in the Arctic. The investigation will utilize an arctic and boreal specific dynamic vegetation model that will be linked to an existing caribou energetics model. This project will involve direct collaboration with scientists from several U.S. and Canadian management agencies.

This is a full-time, fixed term position with benefits, with initial appointment for one year, and potential for repeated renewal contingent on the availability of funding. The successful applicant should possess
a strong background in ecological modeling with expertise in one or more of the following areas:  terrestrial ecology, plant ecology, wildlife, biogeochemistry, and/or computer programming. The candidate must hold a PhD at the time of appointment or have completed all PhD requirements and be awaiting graduation.
