Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Earth System Modelling – representation of high latitude vegetation
The successful candidate will work in the LATICE (“Land-ATmosphere Interactions in Cold Environments”) research group, dedicated to improve our knowledge on cold environment processes and their representation in Earth System Models (ESMs). With a focus on terrestrial systems at high latitudes, the Postdoc will contribute new knowledge and improved model representation of high latitude vegetation and its interactions with the wider physical environment, including snow-vegetation interactions.
The appointment is a fulltime position and is for a period of up to four years (25 % of which is devoted to required duties, usually in the form of teaching activities). Starting date no later than 01.10.2020.
The candidate will interact with model developers within LATICE and contribute to model testing and improvements (own field or lab work is optional). Focus will be on large-scale (regional) model development/sensitivity analyses in the boreal/arctic zone. The work is expected to form an integrating base for land surface modeling within LATICE. Two vegetation modules are used within the group; the default vegetation module in CLM5 with fixed vegetation distribution and CLM5-FATES, with prognostic simulation of vegetation distribution and a detailed description of vegetation demography. Another modelling platform is Shyft, a distributed hydrological model that is used to develop and test parameterizations for a variety of processes.
