This position is co-funded by the Strategic Research Area BECC (Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services in a Changing Climate; www.becc.lu.se/), which is a cooperation between Lund university and the University of Gothenburg. BECC brings together scientists from natural and social sciences to perform research essential in understanding the impacts of climate change on biodiversity and ecosystem services. This position is particularly linked to the BECC grand challenge “Carbon Cycle & Climate Change”.
The successful candidate should conduct research at the Skogaryd Research Catchment (www.gu.se/en/earth-sciences/skogaryd-research-catchment-0), which is included in the national infrastructure networks SITES (Swedish Infrastructure for Ecosystem Sciences; www.fieldsites.se/en-GB) and ICOS-Sweden (www.icos-sweden.se/). The Skogaryd Research Catchment has several eddy covariance systems for greenhouse gas (GHG) flux measurements.
This position relates to the department’s research themes “Climate and Climate Change” and “Earth Surface Processes”, and the successful candidate is expected to contribute to their further development. You will be part of the Biogeochemistry research group (www.gu.se/en/research/biogeochemistry-0) at the Department of Earth Sciences. Our research concerns how biogeochemical cycles are influenced by climate and their potential feedback mechanisms, where we especially try to find mitigations for greenhouse gas emissions. Cooperation with other research group at the department and faculty are expected.
