Patterns in Soil-Vegetation-Atmosphere System monitoring, modelling and
data assimilation

The TR32 is an interdisciplinary collaborative research center including
the universities of Aachen, Bonn, Cologne and the Research Centre Jülich
(Germany). The TR32 comprises a broad range of natural scientific
disciplines and deals with patterns in state variables, and mass and
energy fluxes in the coupled soil-vegetation-atmosphere systems due to
complex exchange processes and interactions. We are currently announcing
a number of

PhD graduate research assistantships and post-doctoral research associate.

PhD students will be part of the newly established TR32 Graduate School.

-Magnetic Resonance Imaging of Soil Water Processes
        1 PhD's position

-Characterizing spatio-temporal patterns of water and C-fluxes at
        1 PhD's position

-The role of soil heterogeneity on field scale evapotranspiration: 3D
integrative modelling and upscaling of root water uptake.
        2 PhD's positions

-Soil moisture content estimation by inverting surface and borehole
ground penetrating radar data
        1 PhD's position

-Spatio-temporal variability of catchment properties and their effect on
water, solute, and CO2 fluxes from the micro- to the mesoscale
        2 PhD's positions

-Scale consistent two-way coupling of land-surface and atmospheric models
        1 PhD's position

-CO2 and water flux estimation by four-dimensional variational
assimilation of in      situ and remote sensing data
        2 PhD's positions

-Development and maintenance of two-way coupled
Soil-Vegetation-Atmosphere System
        2 Postdoctoral research positions

Every PhD's graduate research assistantship is for a 3,5 years period
and is remunerated with a 75%-TV-L E13 Position.

The postdoctoral positions are also for a duration of 3,5 years and we
offer an experience commensurate salary.

Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the
positions have been filled.
