    Postdoctoral Fellow/Researcher (1109) in Industrial Ecology (Land
    cover changes climate)


The Industrial Ecology Progam (IndEcol) at the Department of Energy and 
Process Engineering, the Norwegian University of Science and Technology 
(NTNU), is offering a two-year postdoctoral/researcher position on 
climate and bio resources. NTNU is a well-established institution in 
this domain with authors contributing to 5^th assessment report by the 
IPCC and more than 30 peer reviewed publications in this domain over the 
last few years.

Many of the transformation pathways presented by the IPCC are strongly 
dependent on land related measures to meet ambitious targets of climate 
change mitigation. At the same time, understanding and modelling how to 
best manage land and terrestrial ecosystems for climate change 
mitigation across different biomes with varying climatic conditions 
remains a formidable challenge.

We seek a person that is strongly motivated to join our team to address 
the interdisciplinary complexities of the land-climate nexus, with a 
particular focus on boreal forest management and regional/global 
climate. The selected candidate will join our group to obtain insights 
that can guide the design of future strategies for resource supply and 
utilization in the context of climate change mitigation. The successful 
candidate should hold a PhD in forest sciences, climate science, 
geo-informatics, or geography. PhDs in applied informatics, physics and 
mathematics are also welcome to apply. Given the interdisciplinary 
nature of the topic, we deem interest and ability to explore new fields 
and sub-fields of the interactions of terrestrial ecosystems with 
climate importance. The candidate should have good programming skills in 
one or several languages (e.g. Pyton, Matlab, Java, FORTRAN) in addition 
to good understanding of fundamental in mathematics and physics. 
Experience with handling large datasets, data parsing, and use of land 
surface schemes is an advantage. Strong analytical capabilities are 
expected. The candidate must be a good team player while also being able 
to work independently and bring the research forward. The applicant must 
be excellent in English both written and orally. The position is of 2 
years duration. Depending on qualifications, the candidate will be hired 
as a Postdoctoral Fellow or as a Researcher. Trondheim is the place of duty.

Researcher 1109 are remunerated in kode 1109 and Postdoctor fellows are 
remunerated in code 1352, and they are normally remunerated at wage 
level 57, gross NOK 483 400 before tax. The salary is adjusted according 
to the recent wage negotiations. There will be a 2 % deduction for
