2 postdoc positions - Importance of winter climate for physiological regulation of tree growth and carbon dynamics in boreal forests
Umea Plant Science Center, Sweden
Two 2-year Postdoctoral Fellowships are available at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (two positions), Umeå, Sweden.
The two Postdocs will work jointly with a third Postdoc from Umeå University on a project aimed at investigating the importance of winter climate for tree growth and carbon exchange in the boreal forest biome. The work will be carried out as three different sub-tasks (see below for details) and each postdoctoral fellow will be tied to one of these tasks. By combining these three levels of organization the project will unravel environmental controls associated with winter climate on ecosystem carbon balances, as well as quantifying these effects on carbon sequestration and biomass production.
PhD-qualified researchers are invited to apply. The degree should have been awarded within the last five years. See below for specific qualification criteria for each of the 3 sub-projects/positions.
