Post-doc on global and regional carbon fluxes

27.09.2017 - Laboratoire des Sciences du Climat et de l’Environnement (LSCE), France

LSCE is looking for a motivated post doc fellow interested in the interpretation of global atmospheric inversion fluxes, and the comparison of their results with data-driven and process-based models to deliver a better understanding of the current variations of the global land carbon cycle. This work is in support of the community efforts of the Global Carbon Project through a project funded by the European Space Agency.

The post-doc candidate will compare top-down (inversions) and bottom-up estimates of land CO2 fluxes and quantify their respective uncertainties across different time scales for all land regions of the globe. This work will contribute to and augment the scientific analysis of the global carbon budget annually updated by the Global Carbon Project by annual updates of regional CO2 fluxes and interpretation of key anomalies happening in some regions. The methodology will build upon the RECCAP project ( and take stock of newly available land surface and atmospheric remote sensing data.
