Job description

As a component of this larger project, we seek to appoint a PhD student to conduct research on  aboveground-belowground interactions in managed forests  and to provide projections of their  future  dynamics  based on a  simulation model . The PhD student will focus on modeling  bio-climatic influences  on forest dynamics by developing alternative formulations of soil water dynamics for better representing  drought effects  on tree establishment, growth, mortality, and competition.  Data analysis model-data using Bayesian techniques), rigorous model analysis, model development and model testing are integral parts of the project. The work will be conducted in close collaboration with scientists from the Swiss Federal Institute for Forest, Snow and Landscape Research (WSL).
