Open positions in the ICOS field

Arctic Research Scientist, Woodwell Climate Research Centre, Falmouth, Massachusetts (full-time, fixed-term)

Woodwell Climate Research Centre seeks a Research Scientist to lead the establishment of a new Arctic Carbon Monitoring Network, which will include the establishment of ten new eddy covariance monitoring sites across the Arctic boreal region and coordination and support for existing flux sites. The Research Scientist will work closely with collaborators and Woodwell scientists to develop the Monitoring Network, including identifying and establishing new flux sites, establishing and maintaining collaborations and partnerships with the eddy covariance flux community, sharing and publishing research results, and working with the project team to upscale and integrate data into a pan-Arctic modeling framework to assess the current and future carbon balance of the Arctic-boreal region.
