4 PostDoc postitions in the AmazonFACE program

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
