The Joint Research Centre (JRC) is seeking a highly motivated post-doc
to work on the climate impacts on northern ecosystems, within the
framework of the FP7 project ICE-ARC
candidate will contribute to the analysis of multiple datasets from
surface/satellite observations and atmospheric inverse modelling to
quantify the recent changes in ecosystem productivity and carbon budget
in response to the accelerated warming of the Arctic and Boreal regions.
In addition, the researcher will contribute to the analysis of model
ensembles (e.g. TRENDY, ISI-MIP, LUCID) and to the application of a land
surface model (Community Land Model) to characterise the future climate
impacts on the terrestrial greenhouse gas budgets, the primary
productivity and the structural properties of terrestrial ecosystems at
the northern latitudes.
Details on the job profile are summarised at the following links.
