Postdoc at JAMSTEC (Japan) for boreal carbon cycle and permafrost
We are looking for a postdoctoral researcher at the Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology (Yokohama, Japan).
The successful applicant will participate in quantitative analyses of the impacts of accelerated warming in the boreal forests of Alaska. In particular, we intend to focus on the consequences of a gradually deepening soil active layer and the interactions among vegetation processes, physical and microbial processes in soil, and atmospheric transport of GHGs, including boundary layer interactions.
The research will be based on field observation and numerical modeling. Depending on the situation of COVID, we may shift our focus on analyzing existing data at our eddy covariance site instead of starting new field experiments.
