Vacancy: Researcher in Carbon Cycle Data Assimilation at Lund 
University, Sweden

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 
an asset.
