[Met-jobs] PhD student positions on water balance of the Thuringian basin - UFZ Leipzig/ University of Jena

Sorry for cross-posting.

We have job openings for 2 PhD students to determine the water balance of the Thuringian basin.

One of the PhD candidates will deal with the question of water budgets at the ecosystem level. This will involve establishing and maintaining a field measurement program for sap flow measurements, the dissemination and interpretation of the collected data (including eddy covariance), with a view to understanding the ecophysiology including soil‐vegetation‐fluxes as well as creating a soil‐vegetation‐atmosphere exchange model.

The other PhD candidate will try to quantify the water balance of the Thuringian Basin. This will involve integrating local field measurements as well as satellite data into a hydrologic model (mHM) in order to calibrate and, where necessary, improve it.

The jobs are part of the BMBF financed project “Integrated Fluid Dynamics in Sedimentary Basins” (INFLUINS). The PhD will be associated to the Institute for Geological Sciences at the Friedrich Schiller University, Jena and with the Department for Hydrosystems Modelling, Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research (UFZ) in Leipzig. Place of work will be Leipzig.
