Forwarded from CLIMLIST... The Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and its Institute for Meteorology and Climate Research - Atmospheric Environmental Research (KIT/IMK-IFU) in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany, invites applications to the open position of a Scientist, in the area of plant ecophysiology and linking observations and mathematical modelling Main tasks will include to design and conduct studies in the field of plant-atmosphere interactions, making use of the institute's experimental greenhouse facility, and field experimental sites. Questions to be addressed include the effects of environmental changes and multiple stress on plant and vegetation growth patterns, and trace gas emission or uptake (e.g., plant carbon, water and nitrogen balance, BVOC emissions, O3 deposition, etc), and how these processes interact with soil and atmospheric processes. A strong focus lies on the quantitative understanding of the underlying mechanisms and on using the experimentally derived knowledge for development and testing of vegetation models. The researcher will be placed in the institute's plant-atmosphere group and establish her/his research programme jointly with the group leader. She/he will have access to a state-of-the art stable isoptope facility. The work will be supported by a technician and isotope engineer. We offer a position in a multi-disciplinary, collaborative research environment with excellent research infrastructure and support, well connected to national and international programs. Salary and benefits will be based on the Collective Agreement for the German Public Service Sector. Appointment will be initially for a period of two years, but with the possibility of extension. For further information, see: <http://imk-ifu.kit.edu/jobs.php> Professional requirements: Ph.D./Doctorate in natural/environmental science and a proven research track-record in vegetation-atmosphere interactions, as documented by publications in international journals. Documented expertise in using isotopic techniques in environmental research will be considered an advantage, as will be successful grantmanship or active participation in cross-disciplinary international research projects. The Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) is the fusion of the former University of Karlsruhe and the Forschungszentrum Karlsruhe. This makes KIT a unique institution in Germany, combining the missions of a university and that of a national research centre in the Helmholtz-Association. With a staff of 8000 and an annual budget of EUR 650 Mio., KIT ranks among the largest institutions of research and higher learning worldwide. Enquiries and applications with the usual documentation (curriculum vitae, certificates, list of publications, short outline of research ideas, and the contact information for two professional referees) shall be addressed to Prof. Hans Peter Schmid, Director; Atmospheric Environmental Research; Institute for Meteorology and Climate Research; Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT/IMK-IFU); Kreuzeckbahnstr. 19; 82467 Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany. E-mail: HaPe.Schmid(at)kit.edu; www.imk-ifu.kit.edu Applications received by 30 June 2011 will receive full consideration. KIT strives to achieve gender balance at all levels of employment. We therefore particularly encourage female candidates to apply for this position. With appropriate qualifications, applications from persons with handicaps will be treated with preference.
