The Post-doctoral Research Fellow will contribute to several Australian Research Council (ARC) funded aquatic greenhouse gas projects. We are working on carbon and nitrogen cycling, including surface-groundwater interactions, in tidal wetlands, estuaries and inland waters. The projects will use a combination of continuous in situ Picarro and Los Gatos concentration and stable isotope measurements, floating chamber flux measurements, benthic process measurements, groundwater measurements and advanced numerical modelling across a range of tidal wetland habitats and inland waters.
The Post-doctoral Research Fellow/Associate will work as part of a multidisciplinary team including biogeochemists, groundwater hydrologists, biogeochemical modellers and coastal managers. The broad objective of our work is to make estimates of, and better understand the factors controlling, GHG emissions from aquatic systems under global change. We are also interested in how to better management these systems to enhance their carbon (e.g. burial) and nitrogen (e.g. denitrification vs anammox) removal capacity (Nature Based Solutions) while reducing associated GHG emissions.
