[Met-jobs] Post-doctoral research scientist in modeling of carbon balance on wetlands

From Jedrzej Bojanowski <>
Date Mon, 2 Apr 2018 21:46:22 +0200

We seek an enthusiastic research scientist to work on modelling of carbon balance on wetlands applying the newest ESA satellite missions Sentinel-1/2/3 in a frame of research project funded by the Polish National Science Center.
Based in Remote Sensing Centre of the Institute of Geodesy and Cartography in Warsaw, Poland you will work on methodology for carbon balance modeling in Biebrza Wetlands based on satellite data and in-situ measurements of: carbon dioxide by a chamber method, leaf area index (LAI) by LI-COR 2200, soil moisture by TDR method (TRIME-FM), PAR (AccuPAR), wet and dry biomass, surface temperature (IR radiometer, EXOTECH), soil temperature. The newest ESA satellites will be applied for developing models of soil moisture (Sentinel-1), LAI and biomass (Sentinel-2), and latent heat (Sentinel-3). Derived soil-vegetation parameters will be the input to carbon balance modeling. Spatial and temporal variability and change of carbon balance in Biebrza Wetlands will be analyzed.

Your profile:
•    PhD degree in the field of environmental sciences or related fields
•    Knowledge of  the surface-atmosphere exchange of carbon dioxide
•    Practical knowledge of the Eddy Covariance method
•    Strong skills in the analysis and interpretation of complex datasets

Your tasks:
•    Participation in the in-situ campaigns at Biebrza Wetlands
•    Measurements and analyses of carbon fluxes, i.e. results obtained using chamber and Eddy Covariance methods
•    Modeling carbon exchange between the surface and atmosphere applying in-situ and satellite data
•    Participation in two publications from the JCR list.

Further information can be obtained by contacting the project manager: Prof. Katarzyna Dąbrowska-Zielińska (

We offer:
A full-time employment contract for the duration of the project NCN OPUS 12 (30 months), gross income 6000 PLN per month.

To apply the following documents should be sent to by 20 April 2018:
•    CV including a list of publications and scientific achievements;
•    letter of motivation;
•    a copy of the diploma confirming the obtaining of a doctoral degree;
•    the candidate's statement that she/he is not financed from other Polish National Science Center project;
•    the candidate's statement that Institute of Geodesy and Cartography will be the primary place of employment.

Please include the following clause in your CV: „I agree to the processing of personal data contained in my job offer for the needs necessary to carry out the recruitment process carried out by the Institute of Geodesy and Cartography based in Warsaw in accordance with the Act of 29 August 1997 on the protection of personal data (ie, Journal of Laws 2016, item 922)”.
