The Emanuel research group at Duke University seeks a highly motivated Postdoctoral Associate to study soil hydrological and biogeochemical processes in eastern North Carolina. The researcher will also have a unique opportunity to help develop and implement meaningful engagement practices between universities and tribal communities around environmental data collection, analysis, and governance. The Emanuel research group studies the impacts of climate change on water, ecosystems, and human communities that maintain close connections to specific places, including Indigenous communities that maintain ties to their ancestral lands and waters. We are especially interested in supporting Indigenous sovereignty through responsible collection, analysis, and dissemination of environmental data in partnership with tribal nations and communities. Postdoctoral Associate will participate in other aspects of the research group, including mentoring, participation in group meetings and activities, and collaboration on group projects. The successful applicant will join a thriving community of scholars at the Duke River Center, at the Nicholas School of the Environment, and at collaborating institutions.

TERM 1 year, with the possibility of extension based on performance and funding.

QUALIFICATIONS Applicants should hold a PhD in Environmental Sciences or a related field. We seek applicants with a strong interest in combining natural sciences (soil science, hydrology, biogeochemistry) with public policies related to American Indian tribal affairs and/or environmental justice. Experience with data governance principles preferred.
