Applications are invited for a post-doc research post to work on measuring forest GHG balances, one of Forest Research's research programmes for the Forestry Commission, contributing to the GREENHOUSE project. The closing date is 28th November.

The work will include running and developing the Harwood Forest eddy-covariance flux tower and clearfell GHG balance project which contributes to the current NERC-funded GREENHOUSE project, led by Edinburgh University. The post is for up to 2 years, to start as soon as possible, and is based at Forest Research's Northern Research Station, Roslin, near Edinburgh. We are looking for someone with GHG flux measurement skills, preferably including eddy covariance, chambers etc.

Although a background in forestry would be preferable, it could be in other land uses or other environmental sciences, with field measurement experience; additional modelling expertise would be welcome. The links below give further details about the post and application procedure.
