Four Postdoctoral Positions, Stanford University, Earth System Science:
Tropical methane emissions and the Global Methane Budget

 
Stanford Earth Sciences (the Jackson lab) in the Stanford Doerr School of Sustainability are hiring four full-time postdoctoral scientists to contribute to:

Two postdocs on the tropical flux project will contribute to field and flux-tower measurements in tropical forests and wetlands with local partners and/or to overall data synthesis, analysis, and scaling of methane fluxes across the tropics.
Two additional postdocs will contribute to improving aspects of the Global Methane Budget . The project provides opportunities for collaboration and travel both domestically and internationally.
