PhD Position in Biogeochemistry
University of Gothenburg
Soil System Sciences (SSS)
The Department of Earth Sciences is looking to recruit a PhD student to work in collaboration with the Ecosystem Sciences group. The PhD project will deal with biogeochemical cycles at a landscape scale in a forested landscape. The experimental work will be conducted at the research station Skogaryd (www.gu.se/en/earth-sciences/skogaryd-research-catchment-0) and will focus on the gross cycling of the macronutrients nitrogen, phosphorus and sulphur by use of isotope (15N, 33P, 34S) tracer approaches, soil carbon dynamics and/or exchange of greenhouse gases. The specific research plan will be developed together with the successful candidate and potential research questions include coupled biogeochemical cycles; temporal and spatial variation of biogeochemical processes; effects of land-use on biogeochemical cycles; and emission of greenhouse gases from ecosystems. Method development can also be part of the project.
