Analysis of ecosystem-atmosphere flux data for evidencing putative impacts of changes in light regime and pollutants deposition during the COVID 19 lockdown.
Vacancy: 2 PhD positions in data assimilation / inverse modelling of the carbon cycle at Lund University, Sweden The Carbon Cycle Data Assimilation group at the Department of Physical Geography and Ecosystem Science has two openings for PhD students with a strong background in Physical Geography and Ecosystems Analysis, Atmospheric sciences, Environmental Engineering, mathematics or… More
The PhD project will help to get a more complete picture of the consequences of
extreme events on the behavior of different ecosystems. For this purpose, the PhD
shall evaluate existing data sets of biotic and abiotic variables including flux data,
with their influence on carbon and water fluxes by linking the ecohydrological,
(micro-) climatological, geophysical, hydrogeological, and pedological information on
plot and ecosystem scale.
Main tasks will be the development of innovative strategies to analyse existing field
well as (geo)statistical methods including machine learning approaches.
Applicants with a degree in atmospheric science, physics, environmental or
geosciences or a related field and a background in micrometeorology and
data-assimilation procedures are encouraged to apply. The candidate should
demonstrate programming skills (e.g., Python or Fortran), experience with scientific
is advantageous. Communication skills in English and willingness to work in a team,
present and publish results at scientific conferences and peer-reviewed scientific
journals are required.
We seek a doctoral student to work with carbon upscaling and remote sensing.
