  1. PhD project: Machine learning for 3D point cloud analysis

    International Max Planck Research School for Global Biogeochemical Cycles, Jena, Germany
    Application Deadline: 15 March 2017

    Project description Terrestrial ecosystems are complex in structure and dynamic through time. This spatio-temporal heterogeneity embeds uncertainty in global biogeochemical models and limits our understanding of how ecosystems will respond to changes in climate and land-use. We need better quantification of ecosystem spatio-temporal heterogeneity to improve global model predictions and … Read more ]

  2. PhD project: Controls on global vegetation distribution and dynamics

    International Max Planck Research School for Global Biogeochemical Cycles, Jena, Germany
    Application Deadline: 15 March 2017

    Project description Dynamic global vegetation models show that the spatial distribution of vegetation will likely change under future climate change scenarios. However, vegetation models have been only weakly evaluated regarding its ability to reproduce present-day vegetation distribution and dynamics. The aim of this project is to assess processes and model … Read more ]

  3. PhD project: Respiration and carbon refixation in Mediterranean and temperate trees

    International Max Planck Research School for Global Biogeochemical Cycles, Jena, Germany
    Application Deadline: 15 March 2017

    Project description Every year plants emit CO2 to the atmosphere via respiration at a rate which is an order of magnitude higher than fossil fuel emissions. Currently, this emission is more than compensated by plant photosynthesis, mainly in forest ecosystems. But this may change in the next few decades due … Read more ]

  4. PhD project: Cavity enhanced Raman spectroscopy for highly sensitive monitoring of biogenic gases

    International Max Planck Research School for Global Biogeochemical Cycles, Jena, Germany
    Application Deadline: 15 March 2017

    Project description The characterization of biogenic gases and their temporal fluctuations is important for the elucidation of environmental processes and the interactions with biosphere. Currently there is a lack of miniaturized, field-portable, and robust sensors capable for simultaneous quantification of multiple components in complex biogenic gas mixtures. An innovative approach … Read more ]

  5. PhD project: Investigating land-atmosphere interactions in space and time as complex networks

    International Max Planck Research School for Global Biogeochemical Cycles, Jena, Germany
    Application Deadline: 15 March 2017

    Project description Today, a plethora of Earth observations (EO) and derived products allow for understanding the dynamics of the Earth system from a data driven perspective. At the MPI-BGC we develop the “Earth System Data Cube” bringing together all critical variables needed to study various land and atmospheric processes: http://earthsystemdatacube.net/ … Read more ]

  6. PhD project: Ecohydrology from space

    International Max Planck Research School for Global Biogeochemical Cycles, Jena, Germany
    Application Deadline: 15 March 2017

    Project description Understanding how vegetation interacts with the water cycle is of critical importance for the evolution of the biosphere with Global Change. Vegetation-water cycle interactions are particularly significant in semi-arid regions where ground observations are particularly scarce. High-resolution remote sensing provides us with new opportunities to observe and understand … Read more ]

  7. PhD project: Data-driven upscaling of permafrost carbon fluxes

    International Max Planck Research School for Global Biogeochemical Cycles, Jena, Germany
    Application Deadline: 15 March 2017

    Project description The Arctic is one of the most susceptible regions on Earth to climate change, and altered climate conditions may have enormous consequences for the sustainability of its natural environment. Interactions and feedback processes between cryosphere and climate have the potential to alter global climate, via mechanisms that are … Read more ]

  8. PhD project: Greenhouse gas budgets at the Amazon Tall Tower Observatory

    International Max Planck Research School for Global Biogeochemical Cycles, Jena, Germany
    Application Deadline: 15 March 2017

    Project description The Amazon plays a major role in the global biogeochemical cycles of greenhouse gases (GHGs) – for example, the interannual variations in the global atmospheric CO2 growth rate are mainly influenced by variations in carbon fluxes in tropical land areas. Other important greenhouse gases, CH4 and N2O, have … Read more ]
