We are looking for an inspiring and motivated candidate with an
international reputation to represent the field of biosphere-atmosphere
exchange processes at the Institute for Landscape Ecology (ILÖK) in
research and teaching. Amajor research focus must be on biosphereatmosphere
exchange processes at the Iandscape scale, linking
micro-meteorological fieldmeasurements and process-based modeling
with related disciplines such as vegetation and soil ecology, hydrology,
biogeochemistry, climatology, remote sensing, and biodiversity research
to quantify gaseous fluxes of ecosystems. The successful applicant
shall study the effects of changing climate and land cover on gaseous
ecosystem fluxes of water, carbon and nitrogen with a particular focus
on greenhouse gases. Interest and experience in applied fields of global
change research, agriculture, forestry, nature conservation, or ecosystem
restoration are highly welcome. Applied methods must comprise up-todate
techniques in micro-meteorology and related data processing, and
candidates should have strong skills in field measurements, processbased
modelling, and statistics. The successful candidate is expected
