PhD Scholarships 2009 in Geobiosphere Science at the Department of Physical Geography and Ecosystems Analysis, Lund University
Lund University announces the following vacancy:
POSTGRADUATE SCHOLARSHIP in Geobiosphere Science with placement at the Department of Physical Geography and Ecosystems Analysis, Faculty of Science.
The position will be within the framework of a new research centre at Lund University, LUCCI (Lund University Centre for Studies of Carbon Cycle and Climate Interactions) financed by a long term (10 years) Linnaeus grant by the Swedish Research Council.
Research at the Centre spans a broad range of disciplines, e.g., Geology, Physical Geography, Climatology, Atmospheric Physics and Chemistry, Ecology, Plant Physiology, Soil Science and Microbiology. There are c. 85 researchers from four different departments within the Faculties of Science and Engineering. Read more about LUCCI at www.lucci.lu.se.
The mechanisms underlying the evolution of Holocene CO2 and CH4 concentrations and climate remain controversial, including whether or not humans have played a discernible role regionally or globally. In this project we aim to improve existing knowledge about human land use over the last 6000 yrs. It will expand a global dataset that was implemented within the LPJ-GUESS modelling framework in order to better assess the role of past human impact on the carbon cycle. The project will link on-going ecosystem modelling work being carried out in Lund with vegetation reconstructions and will involve model applications using LPJ-GUESS.

Statistical Forecasting of Probabilistic Properties
Quality attributes such as performance, reliability, availability, safety, and security have a probabilistic nature, and are important for almost all software development projects and for projects related to automotive, avionic and medical systems in particular. However it is hard constructing a system that fulfils requirements regarding these quality attributes. Consequently, also quality control at the system runtime is required. Du to the probabilistic nature of these quality attributes this project aims to use statistical monitoring and forecasting techniques (e.g. time series analysis) as a novel quality control instrument for critical system components.
Basically, the benefits can be summarized as follows:
- You will work on real-world research problems. (There will always be opportunities to cooperate with major software and systems engineering companies.)
- You will be trained in all skills that are required to successfully finish you research project. Our goal is to help you develop the skills, connections, and opportunities required, that ensure a successful postgraduate career.
- You will create research outputs at the highest standards. In today’s world, it is not only enough to be good, students must be great and competitive compared to other graduate students. Please have a look at our own research outputs.
- You will get optimal and continuous supervision. My goal is to give you strong support on your research from a technical side. However, we also try to help my students to develop their personal skills. If you like to know more about my supervision style, we can provide contact details of recently graduated students as reference.
- You study in a friendly and cooperative environment. Australia is known for its friendliness.
