Post-Doc position on hydrological extremes and carbon fluxes in aquatic e=

The inter-university center for aquatic ecosystem research, WasserCluster=
(www.wcl.ac.at) will hire a Post-Doc researcher to study the role of hydr=
ological extremes on=20
carbon fluxes in an Alpine stream- lake continuum. The interdisciplinary =
project (lead: Tom J.=20
Battin) is funded by the Austrian Academy of Sciences (OEAW), based at Wa=
sserCluster Lunz=20
and involves a number of collaborators from Austria and Switzerland. The =
candidate will design a monitoring program and conduct the work to captur=
e key carbon=20
fluxes in the stream and the lake with the ultimate goal to construct a t=
ime-resolved carbon=20
budget to be related to hydrological events. This will happen with Jakob =
Schelker (University=20
of Vienna) and Tom J. Battin (Ecole Polytechnique F=E9d=E9rale Lausanne, =
University of Vienna).=20
Georg Wohlfahrt (University of Innsbruck) will quantify gas exchange at t=
he lake, Martin Kainz=20
(WasserCluster Lunz) will study past extremes using sediment records and =
G=FCnter Bl=F6schl=20
(University of Technology, Vienna) will investigate past and contemporary=

The successful candidate is expected to design the monitoring program to =
capture key=20
carbon fluxes, to set-up and maintain relevant field equipment and to est=
ablish carbon=20
budgets including the biogeochemical characterization of organic carbon a=
s it moves from=20
the stream through the lake.

We are looking for a highly motivated candidate that holds a PhD in a rel=
evant subject=20
(hydrology, environmental engineering or sciences, aquatic ecology, geosc=
iences). The=20
successful candidate shall have a strong track record in aquatic biogeoch=
emistry, ideally with=20
a focus on carbon cycling, a sound understanding of hydrology and good sk=
ills in data=20
handling and management. Further, competences in modelling and statistics=
, as well as=20
programming in at least one major programming language are an asset. The =
candidate should=20
be able to conduct independent research, to work in an interdisciplinary =
team and must have=20
excellent verbal and written language skills in English.

Please send your letter of motivation, a CV including your list of public=
ations and at least=20
three references all included in one single pdf to Dr. Jakob Schelker=20
(jakob.schelker at univie.ac.at)
