[Met-jobs] Vacancy: PhD opportunity on Hydrology-Vegetation-Climate coupling

From Rene Orth <>
Date Thu, 26 Oct 2017 10:23:16 +0200 (CEST)

Max Planck Institute for Biogeochemistry, Jena, Germany


The new group on Land-Atmosphere Interactions at the
Department of Biogeochemical Integration is searching for
a highly motivated PhD student.

The successful applicant will perform (statistical) analyses with modelled and observed data
comprising soil moisture, matric potential, gross primary production, evapotranspiration, temperature,
and ancillary land surface data. Hydrology-vegetation-climate feedbacks will be investigated with
respect to (1) their short- and long-term variability, (2) their potential changes with climate change, and
(3) their past, present and future hot spot regions. Moreover the student will diagnose, characterise, and
understand critical soil moisture and/or matric potential ranges at which a moisture-limitation of
vegetation or evapotranspiration occurs.

The position is offered for an initial period of 3 years starting from spring 2018:
