Forwarded from CLIMLIST... Dear All We seek a PhD candidate for a project called /Disentangling drivers of change in terrestrial primary production (SATGUESS)./ The project is a cooperation between Lund University and Copenhagen University and the successful applicant will receive a PhD degree from both Universities (a so called double degree). Job assignments The overall aim of this project is to explore the combined use of remote sensing time series and biogeochemical vegetation modelling for quantification of effects on the carbon cycle (stocks and fluxes) from environmental changes. Focus will be on changes in land use, land cover, climate and atmospheric CO2 concentration. Combining the high spatial and temporal resolution of remotely sensed observations with the mechanistic process representation of a biogeochemical vegetation model (LPJ-GUESS), can provide insight into the performance of both model outputs and temporal consistency of remote sensing time series. The combined use will also enable an improved basis for understanding how climatic/anthropogenic drivers influence past, current and future properties of the terrestrial carbon cycle. Eligibility/Entry Requirements The successful candidate should have a strong background in remote sensing of vegetation including handling large data sets and multi sensor data sets. Technical skills in image processing and data handling (i.e. script based analysis) is considered an advantage. The candidate should have experience with ecosystem modelling and a programming language, preferable C++. Knowledge of MATLAB and high performance computing is of advantage. Experience from LPJ-GUESS or similar models are an advantage. Though the technical skills are important for a successful application, as the main focus of this study is to generate an improved basis for our understanding of the investigated environmental systems, an ecological / biological / plant physiological background is obligatory. Hence an MSc (or equivalent) in environmental science, physical geography, geoscience, plant ecology or similar is required.
