This competition seeks to recruit a postdoctoral researcher focused on modelling the impact of management on ecosystem carbon flows and changes in soil organic carbon (SOC).
This position join a well-resourced team of permanent and contract staff investigating the impact of management on C fluxes and have available a large range of datasets of SOC and CO2 fluxes for model constrain and validation.
They will conduct model refinement, including the incorporation of new grass growth modelling into biogeochemical models which will improve our understanding of the impact of soil type and land-use management practice on carbon sequestration.
