PhD position summary/title: PhD position in ecology with focus on patterns of change in carbon storage and cycling over time after disturbance in boreal forests

Boreal forests play a critical role in the global climate as stores of around a third of global terrestrial carbon. As climate change is particularly rapid across higher latitudes, the effects of climate change on this stored carbon has understandably become a topic of intense societal interest. Despite this, boreal forests have been largely ignored in global policy efforts to mitigate climate change and promote sustainable land management. Historically, the carbon storage of Scandinavian boreal forest has been shaped over the short-term by periodic wildfire, and evidence is accumulating that climate change is increasing frequency of wildfires. Today, the dominant disturbance factor is large-scale management as part of the forestry industry. Debates about the climate impacts of forestry frequently rely on ideas about the temporal development of carbon uptake and storage over time. We argue that key data are missing from these debates to shed light on the relationships between key ecosystem services, and how these relationships change over the timescale of a managed forest rotation. Therefore, understanding the immediate impact and pattern of recovery from disturbance – and particularly now the effects of clear cutting in modern rotational forestry – is key to projecting future shifts in boreal forest landscapes but remains poorly understood.

(02) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

PhD position summary/title: PhD student position in chemistry with a focus in biogeochemistry

The PhD education will be carried out within a research project funded by the Swedish Research Council aiming to identify molecular mechanisms for formation of methylmercury in biofilms. The doctoral student will be trained in, and conduct, experimental laboratory work with anaerobic microbial cells and biofilms. A combination of advanced techniques based on microscopy, vibration spectroscopy and mass spectrometry will be used to determine physical and chemical structure and metabolism of biofilms and to determine the chemical form and cellular uptake of mercury. Results from the experimental studies will be combined with thermodynamic and kinetic modeling to understand in detail the processes controlling methylmercury formation.

Deadline : 2022-11-30

(03) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

PhD position summary/title: The Department of Sociology announces a PhD position in Digital Sociology

This PhD project is part of the larger research project Programmable Politics, which is about how the social transformation towards increased automation, through datafication and algorithms, affects how civil society works and acts. The research to be carried out by the PhD shall be about how civil society actors (e.g., social movements, NGOs, trade unions, activists) relate to automation in relation to their political objectives. The broader project, as a whole, uses different types of data and methods, but the work of the PhD candidate will particularly, even if not exclusively, include interview- and document analysis relating to the strategies and actions of civil society agents both online and offline.

Deadline : 2022-11-21
