vor 9 Std.

Job description

You will explore the relationship between soil structural quantities and information that can easily be deduced from lab measurements or mathematical rules denoted as pedotransfer functions.

This relationship will then be applied to predict soil physical properties (characteristic length of evaporation, drainage and ponding times) that integrate material properties at the scale relevant to soil functions.

As the last step, the new soil physical indicators will be calculated at a continental and global scale.

Your profile

You should possess a Master's degree from an accredited university or an equivalent ( e.g. German "Diplom", French DEA ) in the areas of environmental sciences, engineering, or statistics.

You should be independent, inquisitive and capable of formulating new research questions, developing research strategies, presenting research at conferences and publishing research results in international scientific journals.

Strong communication skills, experience in handling large data and machine learning experience would be an advantage. The candidate is expected to assist with teaching and other activities of the group.
