We are inviting applications for a postdoctoral research fellow in
*_ecohydrological modelling_*. The post forms part of the project /VeWa:
Vegetation effects on water flow and mixing in high-latitude
ecosystems »/, funded by the European Research Council (ERC). VeWa is an
interdisciplinary project which investigates water and plant
interlinkages and consequent water availability in ecosystems to
understand future responses to change. We are assessing the role of
plants in moderating water stress and possible climate change in low
energy environments. For more info on VeWa please see:


The post is designed to conduct coupled hydrological/ecohydrological
modelling. Qualifications for this position include a Ph.D. in
hydrology, ecology, soil science, or a related field of environmental
science. The successful candidate will be dynamic and motivated and have
experience in the development and application of numerical models for
various scales and environmental science contexts. The successful
candidate should be experienced in combining process-based understanding
with strong numerical / computational skills. Experience with
programming is essential. Expertise in remote sensing & data
assimilation and / or incorporation of tracers into hydrological models
would be advantageous. Other advantageous background includes experience
in working in interdisciplinary research projects, and working well in a
team environment. Strong English language skills both in oral and
written communication are also required.

The post is based at the Leibniz Institute in Berlin, Germany, but
involves close collaboration with international project partners (in
Scotland, Canada, Sweden, US). The successful candidate will be part of
an exciting international team:

The Leibniz-Institute of Freshwater Ecology and Inland Fisheries (IGB)
is the largest freshwater ecology research institute in Germany. It is a
member of the Forschungsverbund Berlin e.V. and the Leibniz-Association
(www.wgl.de). IGB offers excellent laboratory and field facilities for
interdisciplinary research, large-scale experimental facilities, and
long-term research programs and data sets.
