Eddy Covariance Job Opportunity

PDRA Job Opportunity

I would like to draw your attention to a 30 month PDRA job opportunity: Using Eddy Covariance to investigate the greenhouse gas emissions from Oil Palm plantations on tropical peat.

The PDRA will be working on a project funded by the Malaysia Palm Oil Board (MPOB) entitled: "Ecosystem Carbon and Nitrogen Dynamics of Tropical Peatland". The project aims to quantify ecosystem-scale fluxes of CO2, CH4 and N2O from logged tropical peat forest and oil palm sites before, during and after land conversion. This project uses three eddy covariance towers (2 built, 1 under construction) and builds on existing work at the site in Sarawak, Malaysia and existing collaborations between the University of Exeter, MPOB and the University of Aberdeen. This full-time fixed term post is available from September 2018 onwards for 30 months and is based in Geography at the University of Exeter's Streatham Campus.

For more details and for instructions on how to apply please click here. The successful application will be helping to build and maintain eddy covariance systems and to process eddy covariance data from these three systems, as well as contribute to (and lead) high impact journal publications. This is fantastic opportunity for someone with experience in eddy covariance, and an interest in tropical research. I would be very happy to discuss the project and job in more detail over the phone/email - so please get in touch!

Salary: £34,520 to £36,613 pa depending on qualifications and experience. The closing date is the 14th of June 2018
