Position for Data Scientist/PostDoctoral Associate

Postdoctoral research scientist at the University of Colorado, Boulder

  • Pay $65,000-$75,000 depending on experience.

  • Remote work is negotiable.

  • Funding for 2 years, with possibility for extension.

  • Start as soon as September 2024, exact timing negotiable.

The Mountain Limnology Laboratory (MLL) at the Institute of Arctic and Alpine Research at University of Colorado Boulder is recruiting a postdoctoral researcher to work on a project jointly funded by the U.S. Geological Survey Climate Research and Development program and North Central Climate Adaptation Science Center. The primary project centers around synthesizing and interpreting 40+ years of long-term biogeochemical, hydrologic, and meteorological data from the Loch Vale Watershed (LVWS), Green Lakes Valley (Niwot Ridge LTER), and other high-elevation wilderness lakes in the southern Rocky Mountains. Interpretation will range from site-specific to global. The preferred start date is September of 2024, but exact start date is negotiable.

In addition to leading and co-authoring synthetic papers, the scientist will work with a team to create visualizations and tools that can help interpret the science for a broad audience and make the data publicly accessible. We anticipate that the scientist will gain new, international collaborators, develop new skills, communicate and engage with public land managers, and take part in professional development activities (e.g., Global Lake Ecological Observatory (GLEON) and other all hands’ meetings, relevant conferences, student mentoring, educational programs). The scientist will work collaboratively with the MLL research team to create a SQL database for historic data dating from 1982 from the LVWS and ongoing collection of high-frequency sensor data. This project provides an uncommon training opportunity for exciting data-driven research and building a professional network that includes scientists and Federal decision makers.
