Post-doc position, ecosystem modelling:
This is a position becoming available in the EU-FP7 project “Operational Potential of Ecosystem Research Applications, OPERAS”.

Within OPERAS, the main tasks of the post-doctoral researcher will be to quantify ecosystem responses to climate change and human land use/land cover change. The researcher will be working with existing, and will develop new methods that can contribute to an ecosystem-services analysis and application framework. The researcher will use the process-based dynamic vegetation model LPJ-GUESS, and contribute to refining the model’s most recent developments regarding representation of coupled carbon and nitrogen cycles, and human land management. The post-doctoral researcher will also play an active role in contributing to OPERAS project meetings, the annual project reporting, and provide assistance in the general steering of some of the cross-project tasks.

The researcher will join the research group on plant-atmosphere interactions at the Institute for Atmospheric Environmental Research, Garmisch Partenkirchen, Germany. The project is done in close collaboration with a number of institutions in Europe. The appointee must be willing to visit partner institutions, and have very good spoken and written skills in communicating in the English language.

We offer a position in a young and active team that is placed within a multi-disciplinary, collaborative research environment with excellent research infrastructure and support. We are well connected to national and international research programmes.

Initial deadline for application is mid-September, but the position will remain open until a suitable candidate has been found. Further details see: <>

best regards, Almut Arneth
