This tenure-track position is open at CICESE, a research and graduate teaching institute of the Mexican science agency CONACyT, in Ensenada, Baja California, through the Department of Conservation Biology in the Division of Experimental and Applied Biology.
Candidates are sought with experience in any of the following areas:
ecosystem services (e.g. C and water fluxes), functioning of soil microbial communities, or effects of biodiversity on ecosystem and biogeochemical processes, particularly in the contexts of changing climate and land use.
Associate Professor in physical geography/ecosystem modelling
A position as associate professor within the field of climatology is vacant within the "Terrestrial Ecosystem Analysis" research group at Department of Geosciences and Natural resource management. The group works primarily on quantification of cycles of water, carbon and nutrients in terrestrial ecosystems and exchange processes between atmosphere, vegetation and soil.
Professor of cold region geochemistry
See attached .pdf for details.
We are searching for a postdoctoral research fellow and a postdoctoral engineering fellow interested in working at the interface between soil microbiology and atmospheric chemistry. Further details of the research projects can be found in the attached announcements.
PhD Graduate Assistantship in ecosystem/land surface/land use/earth system modeling and simulation:
We invite highly motivated applicants to join us as PhD graduate students for investigating climate-ecosystem-human interactions at regional and global scales by using ecosystem/land surface/regional earth system modeling and remote sensing approaches. Successful individuals will work on interdisciplinary research projects and be involved in national and international research programs.
Fully funded PhD position to do research on the project:
Upscaling CH4 emission from the Arctic from the plot to the global
scale: building a framework for comparison with models
This studentships is part of the NERC Doctoral Training Partnership "ACCE" (Adapting to the Challenges of a Changing Environment).
This is a partnership between the Universities of Sheffield, and the Centre for Ecology and Hydrology, Edinburgh (Dr. Ute Skiba, and Dr. Garry Hayman).

McMaster Centre for Climate Change, McMaster University, Hamilton, Ontario, Canada (http://climate.mcmaster.ca) is recruiting 6 PhD students as part of a newly funded project to explore the impacts of climate change, extreme weather events and forest management activities on carbon, water and nutrient cycle processes in an age-sequence of temperate forests in Southern Ontario, Canada.
Project and Tasks
The postdoc will explore biotic and abiotic controls on carbon dioxide and methane exchanges in a boreal peatland in Northern Sweden. An automated 12-chamber system connected to a state-of-the-art gas analyzer, a suit of meteorological and soil environmental sensors, digital repeat photography and spectral reflectance measurements are available to explore peatland carbon, climate and phenology dynamics. The overall goal is to disentangle the effects of climate and vegetation phenology on peatland carbon dioxide and methane exchanges.
