Forwarded from CLIMLIST...

The group for land-climate dynamics
(<>) at the Institute for
Atmospheric and Climate Sciences, ETH Zürich has several openings for
positions within the ERC Consolidator Grant DROUGHT-HEAT project. For
the first phase of the project we are seeking two PhD candidates (3
years) and a Data Manager (4 years).

The PhD positions will address the following main research questions:
PhD 1: How sensitive are ecosystems to (soil moisture) drought, how do
these relationships vary in space and time, and what are the resulting
impacts on moisture, energy and carbon fluxes, and the atmosphere?
PhD 2: How sensitive are temperature extremes to land surface
conditions, including soil moisture levels, evaporative fraction, albedo
and land cover type?

More details on the PhD positions, as well as on-line application is
available at:

The responsibilities of the Data Manager will cover the support of
scientists in the acquisition, preparation, archiving and administration
of data for the DROUGHT-HEAT project as well as the development of
web-presentations of project related results. We are looking for a
scientific programmer/information scientist/environmental
scientist/geographer/meteorologist (or equivalent) with a strong
background in the archiving and manipulating of large environmental and
climate data.
More details on the Data Manager position, as well as on-line
application is available at:

For further information please contact Prof. Dr. Sonia Seneviratne
