3-year Postdoc position within a joint project of CASUS, HZDR-HIF and UFZat the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research in Leipzig, Germany

Within the scope of the advertised position, ecological applications of UAV hyperspectral mapping and super-resolution approaches will be developed and benchmarked for quantifying essential ecosystem variables to enable extrapolation of continuous ground or tower measurements over entire ecosystems and larger regions. The research work is carried out in close cooperation with CASUS and the Helmholtz Institute Freiberg for Resource Technology (HIF).

As a scientist with experience in remote sensing, ecology, machine learning and/or related fields you will closely interact with 2 postdoctoral researchers located at CASUS  and HIF. For any questions related to the project and the position, do not hesitate to contact Corinna Rebmann (corinna.rebmann@ufz.de) or Ulf Mallast (ulf.mallast@ufz.de).

Deadline for application: 2 January 2023.

PhD position at ETH Zurich for investigating plant ecophysiological responses and plant hydraulic strategie(full time, fixed-term) 

Urban areas create unique meteorological and climatological environments, are projected to increase, but are also responsible for a large share of greenhouse gas emissions. Therefore, they are at the center of many ambitious worldwide climate action plans to mitigate climate change. Urban vegetation is an effective measure to cool near surface air temperatures, to decrease heat stress, and to reduce public health risks during heatwaves. However, vegetation responses to the unique urban conditions remain largely unknown.

ETH Zurich offera a 4-yrs PhD position to investigate plant ecophysiological responses and plant hydraulic strategies of plants growing in the unique urban environments of Zurich and Basel.

Two-year Postdoctoral Fellow at the National Research Institute for Agriculture, Food and Environment (INRAE) within the UMR EcoFoG, in French Guiana

This position will support the collaborative project “Greenhouse gas emissions in the Amazon Rain Forest”, which aims at characterizing fluxes of greenhouse gases, i.e. carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4) and nitrous oxide (N2O), and their drivers, and comparing and validating flux data obtained at different scales in a tropical forest ecosystem. Particular attention will be paid to the role of the trees in regulating CO2, CH4 and N2O consumption and production.

This is a full-time position for three years starting at the beginning of 2023 with a competitive salary (annual maximum: $44,000) and benefits package, including medical coverage and other insurance.

Applications will be accepted until the position is filled. Preferred starting date January 2023.

Applicants should send a CV, detailed cover letter highlighting their interest in this position, and the names and contact information for two letters of recommendation to laeti.brechet@gmail.com and damien.bonal@inrae.fr.

Atmospheric Scientist Postdoc position in the Netherlands on methane super emitters as observed from space  (full-time, fixed term 2 + 2 years)

The focus of this project at SRON Netherlands Institute for Space Research is on methane super emitters from various sectors such as the oil and gas industry, coal mines and landfills. You will work in the team that uses TROPOMI to detect methane super emitters globally. These detections are then used to guide high spatial resolution satellite instruments (e.g. GHGSat, Sentinel-2, PRISMA etc) to zoom-in with targeted observations or data-analysis to identify the sources responsible. Once sources are identified this information is then communicated to relevant parties such as the United Nations International Methane Emissions Observatory (IMEO) in order to mitigate the emissions. Part of the high spatial resolution data analysis is also done by the team at SRON and part of it is in collaboration with external partners. The work will also include quantification and monitoring of the emissions, as well as performing case studies to improve our research methodologies and our understanding of super emitters. This work will be part of our contribution to IMEO. You will present your work to various stakeholders as well as at scientific conferences, and publish your work in scientific peer reviewed journals.

Position open until filled.
