Professor in Physical Geography with a specialisation in Ecosystem Exchange Processes

at Lund University, Sweden.

Lund University was founded in 1666 and for a number of years has been ranked among the world’s top 100 universities. The University has 47 700 students and 7 500 staff based in Lund, Helsingborg and Malmö. We are united in our efforts to understand, explain and improve our world and the human condition.

The Department of Physical Geography and Ecosystem Science (INES) requires a professor whose main tasks are to carry out and lead research, as well as to strengthen, integrate and further develop existing research activities and foci. The successful candidate is also expected to participate in undergraduate and postgraduate education.

The research at INES focuses on climate and environmental changes, their impacts and feedbacks within the coupled Earth system. The research encompasses a range of spatial and temporal scales and geographic contexts, including extensive studies of Arctic and boreal environments.

The successful candidate will have a strong research track record in empirical and field-based studies of greenhouse gas exchanges between ecosystems and the atmosphere in relation to biogeophysical, biogeochemical and ecological processes that govern exchanges of mass and energy in the soil-vegetation-atmosphere system. Experience of numerical analysis and modelling in relation to empirical studies is an advantage.
