Vacancy: Researcher in Carbon Cycle Data Assimilation at Lund
The Department of Physical Geography and Ecosystem Science is seeking to
appoint a Researcher with a strong background in carbon cycle modelling,
data assimilation, remote sensing, applied mathematics or physics to
work on assimilating remote sensing data into a terrestrial carbon cycle
The position is part of a newly funded project by the Swedish National
Space Board. The project will use passive microwave measurements of soil
moisture and/or other vegetation properties from the SMOS mission with a
terrestrial biosphere model in a Carbon Cycle Data Assimilation System.
The data will be used to constrain model parameters in the formulation
of the processes regulating the terrestrial carbon cycle. The results
will help to improve estimates of terrestrial carbon and water fluxes.
The researcher will be part of an international team operating and
further developing a world-leading system capable of quantifying
terrestrial sources and sinks of carbon dioxide through the assimilation
of various data sources (atmospheric CO2 concentrations,
satellite-derived vegetation activity, in-situ flux measurements etc.).
The post will be available for 24 months, with a preferred starting date
of May 2016.
Closing date for applications: 07 March 2016
Lund University welcomes applicants with diverse backgrounds and
experiences. We regard gender equality and diversity as a strength and
