The Chair of Ecoclimatology invites applications for two Ph.D. positions within the project “Climate change and seasonality – Changes in annual cycles and extremes in atmosphere and biosphere at alpine observatories”. 1. Seasonality and influence of vegetation on CO2 concentrations, δ13C / hydrogen isotopic signature and climatic extremes at the UFS The focus of this subproject is on data analysis and maintenance of the isotope facilities at the Umwelt Forschungsstation Schneefernerhaus (environmental research station, UFS, Zugspitze). Duties include: - Operation of isotope facilities (CRDS) at the UFS - Validation, analysis and modeling of collected data for CO2 concentrations and isotope ratios - Statistical analysis of long time series of abiotic and biotic indices of the vegetation period with modern multivariate methods from extreme value statistics 2. Characterization of the vegetation period in the Alps using remote sensing data and abiotic/biotic indicators This subproject focuses on changes, extremes and variations in the length of the vegetation period under climate change. Duties include: - Analysis of ground data (webcams, observations) of vegetation period length - Analysis of remote sensing data (e.g. MODIS, RapidEye, Landsat Data Continuity Mission) - Internship at the EURAC in Bozen The ideal candidate - has graduated with high success from a Master or equivalent program (for position 1, e.g. meteorology, physics, geosciences, environmental engineering, ideally with a background in chemistry of the atmosphere and maintenance of scientific measuring equipment, for position 2, e.g. geoinformatics, geography, geoecology, forest sciences, with a background in remote sensing) - is interested in and eligible for working scientifically - is both self-reliant and creative, but also a team-player on project level - is computer literate (MS Office, statistical software, preferably R) and holds basic skills in at least one programming language; for position 2, a background in remote sensing software and analyses of remote sensing data is required - has excellent communication skills in English - has a strong interest in publishing results in international and peer-reviewed journals and in timely doctoral graduation The offered positions are paid at the TV-L 13 (65%) level for three years. The successful candidates will join a very active research group at the Chair of Ecoclimatology of the Technische Universität München at the Campus Freising-Weihenstephan. Freising is an endearing and livable university town 35 km north-west of Munich, and is easily accessible by plane, train and car. Your application Please send your digital application to Mrs. Fleischner (email@example.com) including (1) A short letter of motivation (2) Curriculum vitae (3) Transcripts Evaluation of the applications starts immediately and will be continued until the position is filled. ========================================= Dipl.-Ing. silv. univ.
