File Two postdoctoral research positions (Terrestrial Ecosystem modelling) at Lund University
[Jan. 05, 2010] The Ecosystem Modelling and Biodiversity group (EMBERS) of the Lund University, Sweden is mainly concerned with simulating the effects of global change on the structure and functioning of terrestrial ecosystems, as well as feedbacks of ecosystem and land cover changes on the climate system. Vegetation dynamics, species distributions and biodiversity at global, regional and local scales are a particular focus. The postdoctoral researchers will be involved in working with the development and application of the process-based ecosystem model to address a number of global change issues. Please find more information in the file attached.
