Postdoc in coupled climate and terrestrial carbon cycle modeling
Roskilde, Denmark
Aarhus University
  • Postdoctoral Researcher

The Aarhus University Department of Environmental Science (AU-ENVS) in Roskilde (near Copenhagen), Denmark, invites applications for a 2.5 year position as postdoc in coupled climate and terrestrial carbon cycle modeling. The position is to be filled by September 1, 2023 or as soon as possible thereafter.

The position is part of the GreenFeedBack project (Greenhouse gas fluxes and Earth system Feedbacks) funded under the Horizon Europe framework and focuses on how high-latitude ecosystem responses feed back onto the global carbon cycle and modulate projected climate changes. The postdoc will use the coupled earth system model EC-Earth and implement developments achieved in other work packages into the dynamic vegetation-terrestrial ecosystem component, LPJ-GUESS, and perform global-scale sensitivity and future simulations. The work will be done in close collaboration with GreenFeedBack partners from Uppsala University (working with EC-Earth on the marine carbon cycle) and at Lund University (working with EC-Earth/LPJ-GUESS).


  • Phd in physics, chemistry, biology, geophysics, engineering, environmental science, or other disciplines with relevant specialization.
  • Experience developing and executing dynamical vegetation and ecosystem models and using them to study carbon cycle feedbacks.
  • Experience with programming in C++, Fortran or similar languages and executing large code complexes in script-based environments on high-performance computing resources.
  • Sharing code using Git, Subversion or other source code management tools.
  • Experience running either EC-Earth or another coupled climate or earth system model is an advantage.
