The Bioclimatology group (<>)
at the Georg-August-Universität Göttingen is offering positions of

1 Postdoctoral researcher
1 Ph.D. student

in the project OXYFLUX - Oxygen flux measurements as a new tracer for
the carbon and nitrogen cycles in terrestrial ecosystems funded by the
European Research Council (ERC).

The positions are limited by three years and should be filled for 1st
July 2016. The salary is in accordance with the German public service
salary scale (TV-L E13) with 100% (postdoc), which corresponds to 39.8

between the land surface and the atmosphere ranging from local to global
scale. Tasks include data analysis and interpretation, presentation of
results nationally and internationally, publishing in peer-reviewed

Postdoc: Tasks include development, test and application of field
deployable gas exchange chambers for oxygen fluxes between terrestrial
ecosystem components and the atmosphere. Measurements are carried out at
