Research Scientist (f/m/d) Modelling terrestrial ecosystems response to environmental changes
Karlsruher Institut für Technologie (KIT)
Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) – The Research University
in the Helmholtz Association creates and imparts knowledge for
the society and the environment. It is our goal to make significant
contributions to mastering the global challenges of mankind in
the fields of energy, mobility, and information. For this, about
9300 employees of KIT cooperate in a broad range of disciplines
in research, academic education, and innovation.
Our Institute of Meteorology and Climate Research –
Atmospheric Environmental Research Department (IMK-IFU) in Garmisch-Partenkirchen (Germany) invites applications for
Research Scientist (f/m/d):
Modelling terrestrial ecosystems
response to environmental changes
We seek a creative and communicative colleague in the landecosystem
modelling group, based in KIT’s Atmospheric Environment
Department in Garmisch-Partenkirchen (https://lemg.imk-ifu.kit.edu/).
Questions addressed in the group cover the interactions of
environmental changes (especially land-use change and climate
change) with ecosystem biogeochemical and water cycles, functional
diversity, and ecosystem services. Most of our work is based on
developing and applying a dynamic global vegetation model,
off-line or coupled to atmospheric or socio-economic models. We
cooperate closely with colleagues at IMK-IFU, Lund University
(Sweden), and UNEP-WCMC (Cambridge). The successful applicant
is expected to further enhance the group’s national and international
research profile through leading and cooperating in research
projects, contributing to general group activities (such as teaching,
reporting and outreach) and developing project proposals, jointly
with the head of group.
further develop, evaluate and apply the process-based dynamic
vegetation model LPJ-GUESS and its coupling to atmospheric,
socio-economic and biodiversity models;
utilise different observational data streams (satellite remote
sensing, field plot data, statistics) in novel ways to enhance
process understanding related to ecosystem changes and
develop/test model capacity;
provide quantitative analysis related to changes in biodiversity and
ecosystem services in context of the groups’ modelling work.
We offer: a multi-disciplinary, highly collaborative and friendly
team, well connected to national and international programs.
This position is initially offered for 2 years in the first place with
a salary equivalent to the public service TV-L.
PhD in a natural science subject (atmospheric physics,
environmental science, ecology or similar)
Proven track-record in advanced scientific programming or
Above-average publication record; having applied successfully
for funding proposals is an advantage
The appointee must be willing to travel and have very good
spoken and written skills in the English language
