PhD position on data driven compilation of GHG balances of fenmeadow landscapes in the Netherlands (full-time, fixed-term)
Drained organic soils are a big source of greenhouse gases in the Netherlands that need to be reduced by ~25% as part of national emission reduction targets. The Water Systems and Global Change group at the Wageningen University & Research (WUR) offers a 4-year paid PhD position aimed at analyzing eddy covariance measurements of greenhouse gas exchange from multiple fixed and mobile towers as well as from an airborne platform. Infrastructure is mostly operational and data have been acquired since 2020 and will continue for at least two years more. Many more complementary measurements are available from other partners in the National Research programme on Greenhouse gas emissions from Fenmeadow areas. The candidate's research will aim to compile data driven balances of CO2, CH4 and N2O at site to landscape level, as driven by (novel) interventions in water and land management.

Position will be filled as soon as possible and remains open until fulfilled.

Postdoctoral Researcher, Woodwell Climate Research Centre, Falmouth, Massachusetts (full-time, fixed-term)
Woodwell Climate Research Centre seeks a Postdoctoral Researcher to contribute to the establishment of a new Arctic Carbon Monitoring Network, which will include the establishment of new eddy covariance monitoring sites across the Arctic-boreal region and coordination and support for existing flux sites. The Postdoctoral Researcher will work closely with collaborators and Woodwell scientists to develop the Monitoring Network, including identifying and establishing new flux sites, sharing and publishing research results, and working with the project team to upscale and integrate data into a pan-Arctic modeling framework to assess the current and future carbon balance of the Arctic-boreal region.

Postdoc position: Integrative modelling of thinning effects on tree water status and vulnerability to cavitation in Atlas cedar plantations at INRAE, France (fixed-term)

Ecology of Mediterranean Forests (URFM) research unit at the French National Institute for Agriculture, Food, and Environment (INRAE) in Avignon, France is looking for a postdoctoral researcher to explain the long-term positive effect of thinning on tree water status at Valliguières, as well as to characterise the extend to which the negative effect of degrading microclimate with thinning could become more prominent with climate warming.

Two Post-doctoral research positions in Eddy Covariance at CNR-IRET, Italy (full-time, fixed-term)

The Institute of Research on Terrestrial Ecosystems (IRET) of the National Research Council (CNR), in the section of Naples and Porano is looking for highly motivated individuals for two Post-Doc positions focusing on trace gases fluxes measurement and analysis by mean of eddy covariance technique. 

Within the framework of ICOS, the project aims to study forest interactions with the urban environment (mainly air chemistry composition) and the environmental services provided.
