Forwarded from CLIMLIST... Postdoc position in land surface modelling The Collaborative Research Centre 990 / CRC 990 (<http://www.uni-goettingen.de/efforts>) at the Georg-August-Universität Göttingen is offering a position in the Scientific Project A07 / Modelling biogeochemical processes in rainforest transformation systems in Sumatra (Indonesia) at the Bioclimatology group. The position is based in the university city of Gottingen, Germany, includes short visits to Indonesia, and forms part of a large, multi-year project investigating the effect of land-use changes on multiple dimensions in a representative forest – rubber – oil palm landscape in Indonesia. Work will focus on modelling biogeophysical and biogeochemical processes using the Community Land Model (CLM). The position will be limited to 31.12.2019 and should be filled by 1st October 2016. The salary is in accordance with the German public service salary scale, corresponding to 100% TV-L E13 level and currently equalling 39.80 working hours per week. Your duties Tasks will include data compilation, model development (e.g. representing carbon and water cycles of rubber plantations in CLM), calibration and validation of existing and new parameterizations in CLM for the key land cover types (forest, oil palm, rubber), simulation of various land-use change and climate change scenarios, analysis and interpretation of model results, presentation of results nationally and internationally, publishing in peer-reviewed journals. A high degree of collaboration with other working groups/researchers is expected. Your profile • Candidates must have a Ph.D. or equivalent degree in meteorology, biogeochemistry, physics, mathematics, geography, plant ecology, environmental or agricultural sciences, or related disciplines by appointment start date. • Research experience with land surface models, e.g. the Community Land Model, or other types of earth system models • Ability to develop representations of coupled terrestrial ecosystem processes and familiarity with methods to benchmark models against a variety of observations are preferred • Expertise in scientific programming (e.g. Fortran, …) • Scientific creativity shown by a track record of original and innovative research on a related topic • Proficiency in English The University of Gottingen is an equal opportunities employer and places particular emphasis on fostering career opportunities for women. Qualified women are therefore strongly encouraged to apply in fields in which they are underrepresented. The university has committed itself to being a family-friendly institution and supports their employees in balancing work and family life. Disabled persons with equivalent aptitude will be favoured. Please send your application with letter of motivation, CV with copies of certificates, list of publications and contacts of references in electronic form as a single pdf-file by 19 August 2016 to Prof. A. Knohl (subject EFFORTS A07, <email@example.com>). If you have any questions, please contact: <firstname.lastname@example.org>. Information about the bioclimatology group can be found at <http://www.uni-goettingen.de/bioclimatology>. The documents will be destroyed after a holding period of three months. ___________________________________________________________ Alexander Knohl Professor of Bioclimatology Georg-August University of Göttingen Büsgenweg 2, 37077 Göttingen, Germany email: email@example.com web: http://www.uni-goettingen.de/bioklimatologie
