Greenhouse gases and energy exchanges between terrestrial biosphere and atmosphere.

We seek an experienced researcher within the EMERGIA program to work in the EEZA Desertification and Geoecology group, integrated in a regional network of micrometeorological eddy covariance towers operating since 2004 in SE Spain, as well as conducting tasks of representing EEZA-CSIC within International networks (ICOS, FLUXNET). With a multidisciplinary background, the candidate will lead a research line on the influence of climate, ecosystem structure and vegetation functioning on the biophysical processes underlying the greenhouse gases (GHGs) and energy exchanges between terrestrial biosphere and atmosphere. With a high emphasis on arid environments, a primary focus lies on developing monitoring tools and predicting approaches for studying the main environmental factors modulating the carbon and water cycles. From a integrative perspective, this line of research involves the coordinated use of short- and long-term eddy covariance flux measurements, remote sensing approaches and theoretical models. The candidate will be responsible to process long-term eddy covariance fluxes according to ICOS protocols, analyse and publishing results in peer-reviewed journals.
