Research Scientist in Ecophysiology, Microclimatology and Functional Ecology of Forest Ecosystems
The scientist will carry out research on the understanding of the ecophysiological processes at the origin of observed variations of photosynthesis, respiration, and transpiration of forest ecosystems, in order to analyse the effects of global
warming or of extreme climatic events on the functioning of these ecosystems, and to improve their simulation by terrestrial surface models.
The position is based in the Mixed Research Unit (UMR) 1434 Silva (INRAE, AgroParisTech, University of Lorraine) which gathers about 150 people on three sites around Nancy. The objectives of the UMR are to address the issues raised by the society,
and forest managers, on the adaptation of forest ecosystems to global changes, their contribution to the mitigation of climate change, and on the ecosystem services that these provide, such as the production of wood or the maintenance of biodiversity.
Deadline for applications is March 05, 2020.
