Lund University announces an opening:
Professor in Physical Geography with a specialisation in Ecosystem Exchange Processes
The Department of Physical Geography and Ecosystem Science (INES) requires a professor whose main tasks are to carry out and lead research, as well as to strengthen, integrate and further develop existing research activities and foci. The successful candidate is also expected to participate in undergraduate and postgraduate education.
The research at INES focuses on climate and environmental changes, their impacts and feedbacks within the coupled Earth system. The research encompasses a range of spatial and temporal scales and geographic contexts, including extensive studies of Arctic and boreal environments. The research is organised within four related areas or themes: (1) Terrestrial, aquatic and atmospheric processes within the climate system; (2) Ecosystem modelling and climate impact studies; (3) Earth observation and monitoring (remote sensing and field studies); (4) Geographic information science.
INES has a central role within the Integrated Carbon Observation System (ICOS), a European infrastructure, being the host of a central facility for data management, dissemination and outreach, the Carbon Portal. This is expected to influence research activities of the department in a medium to long-term perspective.
In coming years we aim to further strengthen collaboration among the four main research areas of the department, listed above, as well as promoting integration between terrestrial, aquatic, marine and atmospheric research in pursuit of an enhanced understanding of ecosystem-climate interactions within the Earth system.
The successful applicant is expected to take a leading role in promoting, strengthening and further developing established research areas at the department. He/she is expected to actively seek and raise research funding from Swedish and international funding agencies.
The applicant is also expected to develop close collaboration with research teams in adjacent fields at the department, for example ecosystem modelling and remote sensing, and to be active in national and international research collaborations.
The applicant is expected to participate in undergraduate teaching and the development of courses at undergraduate and postgraduate levels, and to supervise postgraduate students.
