PostDoc in BIOGEOCHEMISTRY or BOUNDARY LAYER METEOROLOGY and PhD position in Earth System Modelling

1) PostDoc in BIOGEOCHEMISTRY or BOUNDARY LAYER METEOROLOGY
The LSCE in France, offers a 2-year post-doctoral position in BIOGEOCHEMISTRY or BOUNDARY LAYER METEOROLOGY with focus on atmosphere-biosphere surface interactions.

Given the interdisciplinary nature of the research we are seeking for a highly motivated individual with a PhD and broad interest in natural sciences more specific forest ecology, biogeochemistry, forest management, boundary layer meteorology, albedo, roughness length and their interactions. Rather than for a specific training, we are looking for a candidate who is able to demonstrate her/his ability to publish peer-reviewed papers and communicate in English. Priority will be given to candidates with a demonstrated ability in programming, statistical analysis and manipulating large data sets.


2) PhD position in Earth System Modelling
The Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) looks for applicants for a research position within the Marie Curie Network GREENCYCLES-II, based in Potsdam, Germany:

T5.3 Feedback analysis and evaluation using the CLIMBER model

The Early-Stage Researcher (PhD candidate) will investigate feedbacks between climate and vegetation using the CLIMBER family of intermediate-complexity Earth-system models developed at PIK. Specifically, the established CLIMBER-2 model will be used to evaluate biosphere-climate interactions at global and continental scales. This will be complemented by more detailed investigations of feedbacks resulting from large-scale modifications of the land surface such as due to expanded biofuel production with the CLIMBER-3 model currently under development.

The successful candidate will actively participate in network-wide workshops and training events.
