Post-doctoral Research on bioenergy crops

Segnalato da: Federico Magnani

An exciting opportunity to join an established team measuring GHG balance of a bioenergy cropping system.
A post-doctoral research post is available for two years, funded within the Carbo-BioCrop and ELUM projects to investigate the ecosystem GHG balance of SRC (short rotation coppice) willow compared to that of grassland in southern England, UK. The ideal candidate will have experience of running an eddy flux system, currently already established over SRC and grassland, but with opportunities to further develop the research. The successful applicant will join an active group of researchers including a second post-doc and PhD student, working at the same site in projects EUROCHAR and EXPEER and will supervise a PhD student and laboratory technician.

You will be based at The University of Southampton in the Life Sciences building – a new £45 million development, with state-of-the-art facilities, in the research group of Gail Taylor (; 4 post-docs, 6 PhDs, technician). This post is available immediately, although a later start data may be negotiated. Please contact Gail Taylor ( for further details, enclosing a CV.
