Postdoctoral Lake Research position at APHYS, ENAC-EPFL

The Laboratory of Physics of Aquatic Systems (APHYS) at the Institute of Environmental Engineering ENAC / EPFL Lausanne (Switzerland) has an opening for an early-career science postdoctoral position on modelling primary production (PP) in stratified lakes.

In collaboration with the Limnology Center at EPFL (http://limnc.epfl.ch) and partner institutions in and around Switzerland we have started an interdisciplinary project to estimate PP with new in-situ methods. To strengthen the team, we look for a postdoc with ...

PhD thesis “Fluvial meta-ecosystem modeling”

Posted by:

Fluvial ecosystems are an important element in the global carbon cycle metabolizing large amounts of terrigenous organic matter (tOM). This contributes to CO2 evasion fluxes that are under continuous reevaluation at the global scale. In contrast, research on the underlying processes is concentrated at the local ecosystem scale. This scale-gap seriously hampers process understanding across scales, limits upscaling accuracy, and reduces our scope of reaction strategies. The ERC Starting Grant Project FLUFLUX (“Fluvial Meta-Ecosystem Functioning: Unravelling Regional Ecological ...
