How do ecosystem state and function and ecosystem functional diversity interact? What is the role of animals for carbon and nitrogen turnover? Does altering heterotrophic composition in an ecosystem affect carbon-cycle climate feedbacks?

We seek a curious post-doctoral researcher to assess these questions, who will:

The work is based at the KIT’s department of Atmospheric Environmental Research in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany.

The candidate must be able to demonstrate advanced knowledge in programming (such as in C++), and must have proven experience in simulations on Linux clusters. A degree in a quantitative environmental sciences discipline, for instance meteorology,    environmental physics, or ecophysiology of plants or animals is required. Knowledge about animal and vegetation processes is a clear advantage. The candidate also needs to be familiar with processing large-scale model input and output. Excellent oral and written skills in English are prerequisite.
