Scientific Officer For the AnaEE-ERIC Interface and Synthesis Centre (ISC)

Open position at CzechGlobe – AnaEE-ERIC Interface and Synthesis Centre Scientific Officer

CzechGlobe, the leading Czech Research Institute for research on issues of environmental sciences, and in particular on the problem of global climate change impacts, adaptation and mitigation,
and
AnaEE-ERIC, the intergovernmental European Research Infrastructure Consortium for ecosystem research,
are seeking together a

Scientific Officer
For the AnaEE-ERIC Interface and Synthesis Centre (ISC), located at Brno, Czech Republic

Context
CzechGlobe – Global Change Research Institute of the Czech Academy of Science (Ústav výzkumu globální změny AV ČR, v. v. i.) is a public research institution, European center of excellence investigating the ongoing global change and its impact on the atmosphere, biosphere and human society through the use of the latest techniques and instrumentation. The main goal of the research activity is primarily knowledge and understanding of the mechanisms of the impact of global climate change on individual segments, their adaptation to partial factors and, finally, the use of this knowledge in measures to mitigate the effects of global climate change. An essential feature is a multidisciplinary approach and broad international cooperation. The built-up capacities are used to apply a wide range of the most modern research methods (metabolic, mereological analysis of the flow of energy and substances in ecosystems, process imaging using remote sensing techniques, and demanding computer simulations).
Further information on the aims and mission of CzechGlobe can be found at https://www.czechglobe.cz/en/.

Analysis and Experimentation on Ecosystems, European Research Infrastructure Consortium (AnaEE-ERIC), is an intergovernmental research organization established under the European Council (EC) regulation 723/2009 on the community legal framework for European Research Infrastructure Consortium (ERIC) legal status.
AnaEE-ERIC provides tools to understand the multiple global change drivers on terrestrial and aquatic continental ecosystems across Europe. It proposes access to a distributed, versatile network of facilities that can simulate environmental drivers from land-use change, pollution, biological invasions, rising atmospheric greenhouse gases concentrations, and to increasing extreme events such as droughts and heatwaves.
AnaEE-ERIC provides access for research teams to these experimental, analytical, and modelling platforms. The outcome of these research will lead to a better understanding of ecosystem functions and services, and recommendations to the stakeholders (agriculture, industry, policy makers, NGOs) for the mitigation and adaptation of ecosystem to anthropic induced changes.
The general missions and objectives of the AnaEE-ERIC ISC is to accompany the scientific community to promote their projects results, the support to seek funding and write proposals, the preparation of review and position papers, synthesis of the research performed using the AnaEE Research Infrastructure, and the training, link and outreach of the stakeholders,
Further information on the aims, mission, governance, and statutes of AnaEE‐ERIC can be found at https://www.anaee.eu/.
