Two Postdoctoral researcher positions in Earth system sciences at the University of Munich
The chair for Physical Geography and Land Use Systems (Prof. Julia Pongratz) at LMU’s Department of Geography is seeking two postdocs in Earth system sciences. The working group develops and applies the latest generation of land and Earth system models and integrates them with observations. Key research questions are the fate of natural ecosystems under the pressures of land use and climate change, Earth system feedbacks via energy, water and biogeochemical cycles, and assessing the role that the terrestrial vegetation can play for greenhouse gas emissions reduction and CO2 removals in support of the Paris Agreement. The team is strongly involved in large international collaborations such as the Global Carbon Project, CMIP and IPCC.
