Dear all,

I have the opportunity to identify and nominate excellent young researchers (with an initial preference for female researchers) for receiving an Alexander von Humboldt Fellowship to be working within my group. Please forward to potentially interested candiates.

Thanks a lot, and with my best regards to all of you -- hope things are well,


Briefly (for more information see attached pdf):

 Candidates must meet the following formal requirements:

·         Doctorate completed within the last 12 years

·         Above-average publication record commensurate with career level

·         Have not undertaken post-doctoral research stays nor completed degrees/doctorates in Germany

·         Do not hold German nationality

·         Good knowledge of German or English, depending on research proposal

·         Availability: the research fellowship should commence within 12 months of being granted

·      No previous applications submitted to the Foundation; no previous sponsorship in any of the Foundation’s fellowship programmes

·      Initial preference will be given to female applicants

Research topics include:

·         Developing, evaluating and applying process‐based models of land ecosystems and their coupling to atmospheric, land-use and biodiversity models;

·         Utilising different observational data streams (satellite remote sensing, field plot data, statistics) in novel ways to enhance process understanding of ecosystem or land-use change processes and to test models;

·         Providing quantitative analysis related to changes in biodiversity and ecosystem services in the context of the groups’ modelling work.
