Postdoc Opportunity: Environmental controls of N2O emissions

Closing Date: 19 September 2022

The Department of Agroecology at Aarhus University, Denmark, is offering a postdoctoral position in environmental controls of nitrous oxide emissions, starting 01-01-2023 or as soon as possible thereafter. The position will be available for a 2-year period.

This postdoc will investigate mechanisms behind nitrous oxide emissions in typical cropping systems, but with a main focus on controlled experiments with or without plants. Participation in on-going field studies may also be required. The work will involve isotopes to investigate sources and pathways as influenced by soil characteristics and distribution of reactive C and N. This postdoc will be part of a research environment with a broad focus on measurement and modelling of C and N turnover and crop growth in agroecosystems, and on mitigation of environmental impacts. Results are actively used in policy development.
