the University of Hamburg has an opening for 2 research associate positions
(with opportunity to pursue a PhD dissertation) to work on the
investigation of land-atmosphere carbon (CO2 and CH4) exchange of
permafrost landscapes using eddy covariance flux measurements (position 1)
and stable isotope (13CO2) techniques (position 2), respectively.
Both research associates will work within the collaborative project
"CARBOPERM - Carbon in Permafrost" which is funded by the Federal Ministry
of Education and Research of Germany.
The first position is dedicated to the micrometeorological investigation of
the balances and controls of the exchange fluxes of CO2 and CH4 between the
atmosphere and the dominant tundra types in the north-Siberian Lena River
The second position is dedicated to the partitioning of the carbon fluxes
into the underlying physiological processes, e.g., photosynthesis,
autotrophic respiration, heterotrophic respiration, CH4 production and CH4
oxidation as well as to investigating the gas transport processes within
the soil-vegetation-atmosphere continuum using stable isotope techniques.
The short-term contracts terminate on 30.09.2016, subject to the actual
granted funds. The preferred starting date is 1 January 2014.
Closing date for applications: 15 November 2013
