Postdoctoral candidate

The French OZCAR network is seeking for a post postdoctoral candidate to work on the data collected by the three River Labs, parts of the CRITEX program.

You will be welcomed in the unit UMR SAS in Rennes which counts ca. 100 agents (70 permanent/30 non-permanent agents including researchers, professors, lecturers, engineers and technicians) and involved in research on the interactions between agriculture and the environment using an integrative and spatialized approach of rural areas. Our main interests are water, nitrogen carbon and phosphorus cycles in cultivated landscapes. Our research contributes to elaborate sustainable agricultural systems, to improve landscape management to preserve natural resources such as water, soil, atmosphere and landscape quality.

You will contribute to the French CRITEX program (Challenging equipments for the temporal and spatial exploration of the Critical Zone at the catchment scale) and lead a collaborative work between INRAE, CNRS (Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique) and several Universities by working with scientists from the following teams: SAS and Geosciences Rennes (Rennes), IPGP (Paris), HYCAR (Antony), and LHyGes (Strasbourg). You will be an active member of the French scientific community of Critical Zone Sciences via the national OZCAR Research Infrastructure, part of the European eLTER ESFRI. In particular you will benefit from the experimental settings of three critical zone observatories: AgrHyS (Agricultural catchment; Brittany), ORACLE (Agricultural catchments in the Paris region), and OHGE (Forested catchment in the Vosges mountain) that have been equipped with the “RiverLab”, a lab-in-the-field instrument measuring the river chemistry continuously at high frequency (≤ 30 minutes).
