Postdoctoral position in post-fire vegetation succession

Leave a comment

We are looking for a postdoctoral fellow to lead an interdisciplinary field team of graduate and undergraduate students in the establishment of long-term monitoring sites in the 2014 burns (2015 field season) and across a chronosequence of historical burn sites (2016 and 2017 field seasons). This individual would be responsible for leading the forest succession and ground vegetation recovery component with a view to improved understanding of the response of high latitude boreal ecosystems to extreme fire years. The ultimate goal of this work is the incorporation of these successional data within boreal forest dynamics models under development at the Canadian Forest Service.
