Postdoc Position (m/f)

We are seeking to recruit outstanding scientists to establish an innovative research program with high international visibility. Competitive applicants will hold a PhD in biology, chemistry or geosciences with a strong background in biogeochemistry. The successful candidate is expected to have a solid knowledge in greenhouse gas measurements including gas-chromatography, flux chamber and eddy covariance-based gas flux measurements. Knowledge in remote sensing based methods are desirable but not requested.

Postdoc Position on gas emissions from water bodies into the atmosphere at the landscape level via eddy correlation measurements (e.g. from small airplanes) and locally (by using gas chambers). The Postdoc will also analyze the landscape context for proxies of vegetation and nutrient input from the catchment area. This will be done in close collaboration with project partners holding leading expertise in the relevant fields (ZALF, GFZ2, FU3, TUM4, DLR5 and IOW6). As part of the CONNECT project team the Postdoc will also be responsible for organizing one project meeting and be co-responsible for the planning and conduction of field campaigns on monitoring lake chain systems in the Berlin-Brandenburg area with a combination of near and far remote sensing tools and in situ measurements. The Postdoc will also participate in the preparation and conduction of a large-scale experiment on lake connectivity at the IGB LakeLab mesocosm facility.
