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.

Post-Doctoral Research Associate
Focus: isotope biogeochemistry and carbon cycling in thawing permafrost
(Instrumentation, measurements, and modeling)
Institution: Ecology & Evolutionary Biology, University of Arizona, Tucson, AZ
Start Date: early 2014
The Department of Atmospheric, Oceanic and Space Sciences (AOSS) at the University of Michigan is seeking a qualified Postdoctoral Researcher.
The candidate will work with Dr. Gretchen Keppel-Aleks in the study of climate-carbon cycle interactions. The lab uses a range of tools, including archived observations, ground-based remote sensing data, Earth system models, and simple analytic models to understand the global carbon cycle.

The University of Hamburg has an opening for 2 research associate positions (with opportunity to pursue a PhD dissertation) to work on the investigation of land-atmosphere carbon (CO2 and CH4) exchange of permafrost landscapes using eddy covariance flux measurements (position
1) and stable isotope (13CO2) techniques (position 2), respectively.
Both research associates will work within the collaborative project "CARBOPERM - Carbon in Permafrost" which is funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research of Germany.
