Korkeakouluharjoittelija

Ilmaston muutoksen myötä lämpötilat kohoavat, haihdunta kasvaa ja metsäpalokausi pitenee ja tämän seurauksena metsäpalovaaran arvioidaan kasvavan myös Suomessa. Suurpalojen riskin kasvaessa tarvitaan uusia menetelmiä, joiden avulla muun muassa palojen leviämistä voidaan arvioida.

Tehtävän kuvaus: Ilmatieteen laitoksen Vuodenaikais- ja ilmastosovellukset -ryhmä etsii korkeakouluharjoittelijaa Mellevä-hankkeeseen. Tehtävänä on arvioida muutamien vapaasti saatavilla olevien metsäpalojen leviämisen mallintamiseen soveltuvien ohjelmistojen soveltumista Suomen olosuhteisiin. Mallit asennetaan Ilmatieteen laitoksen laskentaympäristöön sekä havainnollistetaan mallien toimintaa Itä-Suomessa sijaitsevalle koealueelle. Mahdollisia testattavia malleja ovat esimerkiksi Behave, Prometheus, Propagator.

Hankkeessa kirjoitetaan raportti tarkasteltujen mallien soveltuvuudesta Suomen olosuhteisiin. Raportissa määritellään esimerkiksi mallien tarvitsemat lähtötiedot, se mistä nämä erilaiset ja erimuotoiset tiedot ovat saatavissa niin säätietojen kuin metsän ominaisuustietojen osalta sekä tarvittavat tiedon siirtomuodot ja tietomalli ennustemallin käyttämille julkisille tietokannoille. Raportin lisäksi toteutetaan testiympäristö missä mallien toimintaa voidaan demonstroida. Työ liittyy Euroopan aluekehitysrahaston (EAKR) rahoittaman Mellevä-hankkeen toteutukseen (https://www.eura2014.fi/rrtiepa/projekti.php?projektikoodi=A74528 ).

Hanketta toteuttamaan haetaan opintojen loppuvaiheessa olevaa opiskelijaa, ja hankkeen tuloksista voi tarvittaessa kirjoittaa Pro Gradu -tutkielman.

2 Researchers or Senior Researchers (Carbon cycle modelling)

An emerging research field at FMI is the quantification of sinks and sources of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases in terrestrial ecosystems. Concern about climate change has created a timely need for this information in the society.

The Carbon Cycle group of the Climate System Research unit (https://en.ilmatieteenlaitos.fi/climate-system-research) is now announcing two research positions focusing on the modelling of carbon cycling and climate impacts of agricultural ecosystems. The work aims at developing a calculation and verification system to quantify carbon sequestration and the overall impacts on climate. The work includes mathematical modelling, computer programming, data analyzing and scientific reporting of the results.

One focus of the work is to complement the descriptions of processes and those of land management effects in our current models of vegetation and soil. We are using and developing our own Yasso soil carbon model (https://en.ilmatieteenlaitos.fi/yasso) and applying other existing land-surface vegetation models.

Another focus of the work is to improve the efficiency and methods of using various measurements in developing and applying the vegetation and soil models as a part of the carbon and climate impact calculation and verification system. This covers various approaches and methods of model-data fusion.

The focus of each position is finally determined according to the qualifications and preferences of successful candidates and the division of work in our research team. Using the results for preparation of doctoral or masters thesis is possible.

2-3 Researchers or Senior Researchers (Greenhouse gas measurements)

An emerging research field at FMI is the quantification of sinks and sources of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases in terrestrial ecosystems. Concern about climate change has created a timely need for this information in the society.

The Greenhouse Gases group of the Climate System Research unit is now announcing research positions focusing especially on greenhouse gases in agricultural ecosystems. The work aims at 1) improving our understanding about the processes of carbon cycling and greenhouse gas emissions and 2) developing measurement routines for a quantification system of carbon sequestration and greenhouse gas fluxes.

The work involves measuring the greenhouse gas fluxes and linking the results and the procedures to modelling of carbon cycling and greenhouse gas emissions and to other vegetation and soil measurements taken in field, laboratory or using remote sensing.

The positions have specific focuses as described below. The work of all positions includes scientific reporting of the results. Using the results for preparation of doctoral thesis is possible.

1. Data analysis The position focuses on developing an analysis system of greenhouse gas flux data for estimating the carbon and greenhouse gas balances of soil and vegetation and the accumulation of carbon. An emphasis is on creating standard procedures for estimating uncertainties in the greenhouse gas flux measurements and the carbon balance estimates. Potential candidates have a degree in a suitable field, such as physics, mathematics or statistics, and skills in computer programming (preferably using Python).

2. Measurements The position focuses on planning, conducting and supervising field measurements of greenhouse gas fluxes taken using eddy covariance and chamber techniques and other related ecological and meteorological measurements and data analyses. Potential candidates have a degree in a suitable field, such as agricultural, environmental or forest sciences, biology or physics.

3. Combining methods The position focuses on combining data on greenhouse gas fluxes with data on different vegetation indices (NDVI, fluorescence, LAI etc.) measured on the ground and using drones and satellites. The work includes supervision of other researchers, field work and data analyses. Potential candidates have experience in the topic and a degree in a suitable field, such as agricultural, environmental or forest sciences, biology, physics or geography.

Tenure Track Professor (Climate change impacts)

FMI has introduced a tenure track programme for service and research personnel, intending to provide a consistent competitive and attractive career path. FMI seeks talented, motivated academics who have completed their doctoral degree within the last ten years, and have since accrued academic and other relevant qualifications. Successful applicants will be employed as tenure track professors. The duration of the initial employment contract is three to five years, depending on the background and experience of the appointee. Continuation on a second fixed-term contract depends on successful fulfilment of predefined criteria; after which a permanent position as research professor may be offered. Academic qualifications and experience will be considered. Additional merit will be given for demonstrating the ability to acquire research funding, utilization of research in the development of services, working abroad, and international exposure.

FMI will allocate two tenure track positions to areas which are strategic for the future success of the institute; Climate change impacts and Climate change mitigation. Applicants are expected to have a significant contribution to these strategic areas.

JOB DESCRIPTION/ Tenure Track Professor (Climate change impacts)

The tenure track professor is expected to take a leading position in FMIs research on climate change impacts and/or management of their risks. The research of the tenure track professor should aim at bringing FMI to the forefront in the international development of novel climate services.
