Prospective Postdocs

Associated with the QUINCY project, the Terrestrial Biosphere Modelling
(TBM) Group is looking for 3 PostDocs (f/m) in soil and biosphere
biogeochemical modelling

Your Job (#1): (2 years, with the possibility of extension)

further develop a process-based soil organic C model (COMISSION; Ahrens
et al. 2015) to account for the effect of microbial nitrogen and carbon
limitation on soil organic matter decay investigate and evaluate how
soil microbial processes are affected by changes in quality and quantity
of rhizodeposits of plants under elevated atmospheric CO2
concentrations, using data from Free Air CO2 Enrichment experiments
contribute to the ERC consolidator grant QUINCY (Quantifying the effects
of interacting nutrient cycles on terrestrial biosphere dynamics and
their climate feedbacks):
<https://www.bgc-jena.mpg.de/bgi/index.php/Projects/QUINCY> contribute
to publications in international scientific journals and presentations
on national and international meetings

Your Job (#2): (3 years)

further develop a process-based soil organic C model (COMISSION; Ahrens
et al. 2015) by developing and adding the necessary process
representations to simulate soil P dynamics and their effect on soil
organic matter decay evaluate this model using data collected at a range
of beech forest sites along a P availability gradient investigate and
evaluate rhizosphere interactions with the vegetation under a range of
fertilisation scenarios contribute to the DFG priority programme
ecosystem nutrition (forest strategies for limited phosphorus
resources): <https://www.ecosystem-nutrition.uni-freiburg.de/>
contribute to publications in international scientific journals and
presentations on national and international meetings

Your Job (#3): (3 years, with the possibility of extension)

contribute to the on-going development of a new land surface scheme
simulating the coupled global terrestrial carbon, nitrogen and
phosphorus cycles by integrating existing components for soil and
vegetation modelling into a common global framework. evaluate this new
model using large-scale benchmarks (e.g. up-scaled in situ data, remote
sensing data, atmospheric CO2 record) perform scenario simulations to
evaluate the net effect of nitrogen and phosphorus dynamics on
projections of the global land carbon budget of the 21st century
contribute to the ERC consolidator grant QUINCY (Quantifying the effects
of interacting nutrient cycles on terrestrial biosphere dynamics and
their climate feedbacks):
