BECC announces two PhD positions in Gothenburg
Two PhD positions are available within BECC
First one is within how biogeochemical cycles are influenced by climate and their potential feedback mechanisms, where we especially try to find mitigations to reduce the ecosystem greenhouse gas emissions. Moreover, we study the interaction between plants and the soil ecosystem and how land use affects the flow of carbon and nutrients in a variety of ecosystems (arctic, boreal, tropical, and agriculture).

The second position is connected to the project MYR, Climate smart management practices on Norwegian organic soils, which will be conducted 2018-2022 and funded by the Norwegian research council. MYR will investigate different management practices of Norwegian organic soils covering three land use types: cultivated, abandoned and restored, with a specific aim on how to achieve significant reductions in GHG (CO2, CH4, N2O) emissions by 2030/2050. The work is part of the Work Package 3, synthesis, dealing with GHG emissions and yield in differently managed organic soils on national and regional scales and by 2030 and 2050 using a metamodeling approach compiled from four models. The Doctoral Student in Gothenburg will use by the project collected data from the field sites in Norway and combine with the CoupModel for scenario analysis. Co-operation with other modelling groups in the MYR project, using other models, is expected.
