PhD position in ecohydrology in the SFB ECOSENSE
Universität Freiburg, , Germany
Apply before: 15 August 2022

We are offering a PhD position in ecohydrology, starting September 2022 which is funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) within ECOSENSE (CRC 1537) - Multi- scale quantification and modelling of spatio-temporal dynamics of ecosystem processes by smart autonomous sensor networks.

The project “Linking carbon and water fluxes in trees to the soil and atmosphere using in-situ NMR and ecohydrological sensor cluster“ is located at the Chair of Hydrology (Prof. Dr. Markus Weiler) at the University of Freiburg, Germany.

You will focus on ecohydrological fluxes and processes in heterogeneous forest patches investigating dynamics and spatial patterns in root water uptake, tree sap flow and phloem carbon isotopes, its feedbacks on spatio-temporal soil moisture variability and heterogeneity, and how this, in turn, affects tree water use efficiency and phloem sugar transport.
