Post-doctoral scientist with expertise in the setup and maintenance of eddy covariance towers to measure ecosystem CO2, CH4, and H2O exchange, and to manage, process and interpret the resulting GHG flux data jointly with other environmental sensing data.
In Vienna Austria, we are continuing with and expanding upon tall-tower urban eddy covariance measurements as part of the Vienna Urban carbon Laboratory Project.
We currently have an opening for a funded PhD position at the Uni BOKU Vienna that has a focus on urban CO2 and CH4 fluxes. The deadline for applications is 19 July 2021. The link to the post is below:
Head of Service Group for Field Experiments and Instrumentation (m/f/d)
Max-Planck-Institute for Biogeochemistry, Jena, Germany
(Full-time/part-time, initially limited to two years, with permanent employment possible)
We are seeking an enthusiastic and highly motivated individual for the position of research program
manager to support an environmental monitoring and Indigenous field technician training initiative
in the Northwest Territories, Canada.
Support group research activities through building field experiment platforms, fabricating necessary accessories, installing and maintaining instruments and sensors, conducting field measurements, collecting field data, processing field samples, and closely working with other lab members on different experimental works.
Field and Laboratory Specialist
The Institute for Sustainability, Energy, and Environment at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign seeks a full time Field & Laboratory Specialist in the DeLucia lab (https://www.life.illinois.edu/delucia/index.htm). This is a 12-month non-tenure-track Academic Professional position. The overall goal of the project is to investigate whether adaptive multi-paddock (AMP) grazing can increase the delivery of climate regulating services from grazed pastures used for livestock production compared to the “business as usual” continuous grazing (CG). We are seeking a motivated candidate to conduct field work, laboratory experiments, and data processing and analysis to characterize the impact of AMP on the regulation of Greenhouse Gases (CO2, CH4 and N2O) versus CG management; to quantify the efficiency at which pastures under AMP and CG use water; and; to understand the mechanisms by which grazing management strategies affect CO2, CH4 and N2O and H2O fluxes from pastures. To check position requirements and required/preferred qualifications please see full job ad.

Project focus: Dryland-specific mechanisms of organic matter decay and their contribution to the CO2 flux from decomposition in dry shrubland ecosystems.
Highlights: This 4-yr project includes collaboration with researchers in Spain and labs in various biomes worldwide. It applies new analytical methods of gas exchange and its isotopic signature in the field and the lab.
