PhD position – In situ assessment of greenhouse gases and ammonia emissions from livestock systems in East Africa

The International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI, http://www.ilri.org) in cooperation with the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Institute of Meteorology and Climate Research, Atmospheric Environmental Research (IMK-IFU, http://imk-ifu.fzk.de/) is looking for a PhD student to join a project focusing on greenhouse gases (GHG) and ammonia emissions from different livestock systems in East Africa. The candidate will conduct measurements of greenhouse gases and ammonia fluxes from various livestock systems across East Africa by means of a combination of chamber measurements, eddy covariance techniques and other micrometeorological approaches. Different management strategies will be investigated to determine the current status of GHG and ammonia emissions … Continua a leggere PhD position – In situ assessment of greenhouse gases and ammonia emissions from livestock systems in East Africa

PhD position in upscaling C-fluxes in Arctic areas using remote sensing/GIS

We are advertising three PhD positions in Denmark: 1. The PhD project aims to study the element cycling of nitrogen, including fixation, mineralization and denitrification rates in arctic landscapes. The work is likely to include field experiments along natural gradients and laboratory work based on complex microbial communities in mesocosm experiments. 2. This PhD project focuses on annual C budgets linked to existing snow fence experiments and year-round CO2 flux measurements (eddy/chamber measurements) at Disko, West Greenland. The study will include shoulder season dynamics and low temperature effects on the exchange of CO2 and CH4 in different landscape components and … Continua a leggere PhD position in upscaling C-fluxes in Arctic areas using remote sensing/GIS
