PhD position at the Max Planck Institute for Biogeochemistry, Jena (Germany) Modelling the effects of air pollution on terrestrial carbon and nitrogen cycles The PhD-project will be integrated into a large-scale European research effort to better understand the effects of air-pollution (mainly ozone and nitrogen deposition) on land ecosystems. Using a global carbon-nitrogen cycle ecosystem model, the project will exploit ecological data bases and/or ecophysiological theory to improve the representation of critical plant physiological processes and plant-soil interactions. The improved model will then be evaluated using results of ecosystem studies and manipulation experiments and used to estimate the likely present-day and future effects of air pollution on terrestrial carbon sequestration and reactive nitrogen losses. The project would be most suited to students with a background in a quantitative science (e.g. geo-ecology, environmental science, biology, applied mathematics, physics, and computer science) with an interest in applying their expertise to terrestrial ecology and global change research and numerical modelling. Please send your applications including letter of interest, and CV, and the names and contact information of one or two references either via email to email@example.com, or directly to the institute's address Max-Planck-Institut für Biogeochemie, Postfach 10 01 64, 07701 Jena, Germany by the 30th September 2011.
