At the Department of Ecology, we are conducting both empirical and theoretical research for sustainable forest and agricultural production and efficient biological conservation. Our research on populations, communities, and ecosystems forms the foundation for studying the influence of land use and climate change on animals, plants and soils. Solutions are sought that will improve greenhouse gas balances, preserve threatened species, benefit biological diversity and ecosystem services, sustainable wildlife management and control pests in forest and agricultural landscapes as well as in urban areas.
We are looking for a postdoc joining our group to work with projects on soil carbon sequestration and the exchange of greenhouse gases at the soil/plant/atmosphere boundary in agricultural systems as affected by different management practices.
Applicants must hold a PhD in soil or environmental science, ecosystem ecology or similar disciplines obtained within the last three years at the time of application. Applicants must have worked with carbon cycling and gas exchange measurements in the field including analysis of isotopic signatures. The candidate should have good knowledge in the interpretation of mechanisms regulating greenhouse gas emissions from soils as a function of management and land use changes. Documented experience in spatial analysis of large datasets, processing of satellite images mapping of time series data are expected. Advanced skills using statistical programs (e.g., R, SAS, SPSS), spatial analysis programs (e.g. ArcGIS) and other programming software (e.g., MATLAB) are meriting. Excellent oral and written communication skills in English are necessary.
