Job description

The Department of Physical Geography and Ecosystem Science ( is seeking to appoint a postdoctoral researcher with a strong background in carbon cycle modelling, data assimilation, inverse modelling or applied mathematics.

The appointee will be part of a vibrant and international team within the Department of Physical Geography and Ecosystem Science. The department operates and further develops the regional LUMIA inverse modelling framework estimating both CO2 and CH4 fluxes from atmospheric observation. We also operate the Carbon Cycle Data Assimilation System capable of quantifying sources and sinks of carbon dioxide through the assimilation of observational data. We are closely collaborating with the ICOS Carbon Portal (hosted by the Department of Physical Geography and Ecosystem Science) that develops operational data products and services building on ICOS observations for analysing the state of the carbon cycle of Europe.

The position is linked to the EU-funded projects CORSO ( and AVENGERS (coordinated by Lund University, As part of these projects the appointee will work on developing and applying a coupled carbon cycle fossil fuel data assimilation system and/or the LUMIA regional inversion system. The appointee will be a member of the inverse modelling group; he/she will work on the development and application of the assimilation systems together with the project partners and international collaborators.

The position will be available for 24 months, with a preferred starting date of June 2024.

Closing date for applications: 21 April 2024
