|JOB TITLE||Post-Doc Isotopic studies of the greenhouse gases budget (N2O / CO2) in soils receiving carbonate liming products|
|EMPLOYER||UBFC – 32 avenue de l’Observatoire – 25000 BESANCON|
|LOCATION||INRAE UMR 1347 AgroEcology – 17 rue Sully – 21065 DIJON Cedex – France|
|CONTRACT DURATION||18 Months – Full Time|
|DEADLINE APPLICATION||February 7th 2021|
|STARTING JOB||March 1st 2021 (expected)|
|JOB DESCRIPTION||N2O is a greenhouse gas with a high global warming potential, estimated to contribute up to 6% of radiative forcing at the global scale (10 % in France). Agricultural soils appear to be the main anthropogenic source of this gas. The production of N2O by soils primarily occurs through two biological processes (nitrification and denitrification) submitted to complex biotic and abiotic regulations. Different options for mitigating soil N2O emissions, including liming acidic soils, are currently emerging.
The recruited candidate will study simultaneously (i) the fate of C from carbonate liming products (CO2 production, dissolution and lixiviation, ….) when applied to soil and (ii) how much carbonate products can reduce soil N2O emission by promoting the N2O reduction. The approach will be based in particular on the use of 13C and 15N isotopic technics.
|SUPERVISORS||Dr C. Hénault (INRAE – AgroEcology) will be the supervisor.
in collaboration with Dr O. Mathieu and Dr P. Amiotte-Suchet (UMR CNRS 6282 Biogeosciences) through the NatAdGES project (https://www6.inrae.fr/natadges). The postdoc research fellow will benefit from access to the GISMO platform, hosted in the CNRS Biogeosciences laboratory (http://gismo-solutions.fr/en/home) and specialized in stable isotopic tracing technics in environment.
