The AmazonFACE Research Program, the first Free-Air CO2 Enrichment Experiment in the Amazon Forest wishes to recruit four post-doctoral researchers at the Brazilian National Institute for Amazonian Research (INPA).
The application period is June 1st to June 28th 2019.
Background and aim
The extent to which elevated atmospheric CO2 concentrations might increase the productivity of Amazon forest and its vulnerability to the potential negative impacts of climate change is one of the largest uncertainties in ecosystem and global change science. The aim of this project is to determine how free air CO2 enrichment (FACE) affects Amazon forest functioning. It will be the first FACE experiment carried out in a mature tropical forest.
