PhD on “the pan-Canadian domain and how nitrogen limitation of carbon sequestration in Canadian boreal forests is influenced by global change” at Dalhousie University, Halifax, NS, Canada
Prof. Sian Kou-Giesbrecht is looking for interested students and postdocs who want to join their research group!
Their research looks at nitrogen cycling in terrestrial ecosystems and how it is represented in terrestrial biosphere models and Earth System Models, with a focus on nitrogen limitation of carbon sequestration in boreal forests under global change. They take an interdisciplinary approach, combining empirical ecology and field work with global modelling of the terrestrial biosphere and climate change. If you are interested in terrestrial ecosystem ecology, carbon and nitrogen cycling, global change, boreal forests, field research, and/or ecological modelling please reach out (firstname.lastname@example.org)!
Improving how nitrogen and carbon cycling are represented in the Canadian Land Surface Scheme Including Biogeochemical Cycles (CLASSIC), which is the terrestrial biosphere model component of the Canadian Earth System Model (CanESM) developed by Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) and which contributes to the climate change projections in the IPCC Assessment Reports. This work would focus on the pan-Canadian domain and how nitrogen limitation of carbon sequestration in Canadian boreal forests is influenced by global change.
