The Department of Biology at the University of Central Florida (UCF) invites applications for an open rank, tenure earning or tenured position in Coastal Ecology. They seek a broadly-trained, collaborative coastal ecologist/biologist, who focuses on nearshore (wetland, estuarine, or marine) systems. Potential research areas include, but are not restricted to: biogeochemistry, climate change, community ecology, conservation biology, ecosystem ecology, ecotoxicology, environmental physiology, habitat modeling, microbial ecology, phycology and/or sea-level rise. Researchers who use innovative combinations of field, experimental and theoretical approaches are encouraged to apply. We strongly prefer candidates who can build within-department and interdisciplinary collaborations (e.g., with civil and environmental engineers, mathematical modelers, oceanographers).

PhD opportunity- Paleoclimate and Paleoecology of the Arctic
Monday, 28 July 2014 00:00

PhD position available investigating the role of terrestrial feedback mechanism in amplifying arctic surface temperatures during the Middle Pliocene (ArcAMP). The Arctic is currently warming at an alarming rate; however, the various feedback mechanisms and how they co-operate to amplify Arctic temperatures still remain uncertain.  Important clues for solving some of these fundamental climate questions regarding Arctic amplification may be uncovered during the Pliocene (2.6 to 5.3 MYA).  Although atmospheric CO2 concentrations during the Pliocene were comparable to modern concentrations of ~ 400 ppm, Arctic temperatures were 10 to 20°C warmer than today.  This project will focus on the interaction among terrestrial feedback mechanisms and their role in amplifying Arctic surface temperatures.  In particular, we are interested in the net radiative impacts of vegetation albedo, atmospheric water vapor, and black carbon emitted from fire on the Arctic climate system.  This will be accomplished by conducting high-resolution reconstructions of past temperatures, atmospheric CO2, and fire for several high Arctic sites.  This is an NSF funded collaborative project between the Global Climate and Ecology Lab at the University of Montana and the paleoclimate working group at the National Center for Atmospheric Research.
