Vacancy: 2 PhD positions in data assimilation / inverse modelling of the carbon 
cycle at Lund University, Sweden

The Carbon Cycle Data Assimilation group at the Department of Physical 
Geography and Ecosystem Science has two openings for PhD students with a strong 
background in Physical Geography and Ecosystems Analysis, Atmospheric sciences, 
Environmental Engineering, mathematics or physics.


Topic 1: Quantifying fossil fuel CO2 emissions based on atmospheric radiocarbon 
within a Fossil Fuel Data Assimilation System

The PhD student will work with an established model-data fusion method to 
exploit the complementary information of atmospheric radiocarbon (14CO2) 
observations for estimating fossil fuel CO2 emissions. The approach will build 
on the Fossil Fuel Data Assimilation System (FFDAS; Asefi-Najafabadi et al, JGR 
2014) and the atmospheric transport inversion system LUMIA. The student will 
have the opportunity to collaborate with colleagues in the USA, Germany and 
Australia.


Topic 2: Model-Data Fusion for improving quantification of methane fluxes from 
wetlands with LPJ-GUESS

The PhD student will work with an established model-data fusion method to 
exploit the observational constraint of methane ecosystem flux measurements on 
model estimates of CH4 fluxes from wetlands via the optimisation of model 
process parameters. The approach will build on the Carbon Cycle Data 
Assimilation SYstem (CCDAS; Scholze et al. 2007. J. Geophys. Res. 112, D17305). 
The student will have the opportunity to collaborate with colleagues in Germany 
and the Netherlands.


The PhD positions are for 4 years, with a preferred starting date of 1 March 
2019.

Closing date for applications: 20 January 2019
