We are offering a four-year PhD position to work on the project DENDROHIST with the title:
‘Long-term perspective to the current environmental crisis in the Iberian Mediterranean region from tree rings’
The project DENDROHIST aims to provide long-term critical climate information for the Iberian Mediterranean region using tree-ring and historical records. The integration of these two independent paleoclimate archives will allow for a multidisciplinary approach to estimate the full range of past climate and extreme climate events. Specifically, the candidate will focus on generating gridded spatio-temporal reconstructions of temperature and precipitation variability for the study region by measuring ring width and blue intensity (i.e. a novel parameter that provides similar climatic information as the maximum density) on tree-ring samples from two existing collections covering the east of Spain. New collections of timbers from historic buildings will also take place to extend the tree-ring records in time. The resulting products will provide information on general atmospheric patterns and help designing sustainable water management policies, with the added value of improving the study of cultural heritage from the region through a dendroarchaeological approach.
We are looking for a highly motivated student passionate about research discovery with a master degree in environmental sciences, forestry, geography, dendrochronology, climatology, modelling, as well as any other disciplines related to the project research areas. The student will join a multidisciplinary international team of researchers. English proficiency and programming skills will positively be evaluated.
If you are interested, please contact and send your CV a.s.a.p. to Laia Andreu Hayles (email@example.com) and Marta Delmás Domínguez (firstname.lastname@example.org).
