Postdoc position within Ecohydrology Research Group(EHRG),
Xishuangbanna Tropical Botanical Garden, Chinese Academy of Sciences
Xishuangbanna Tropical Botanical Garden (XTBG) of Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) was founded in 1959. It is a comprehensive research institution engaged in scientific research, species preservation, science communication, science & technology development, and a well-known scenic spot as well. XTBG is located in the north edge of tropical zone with high biodiversity and various vegetation types. Three field stations (Xishuangbanna Tropical Rainforest Ecosystem Station, Ailaoshan Station for Forest Ecosystem Studies and Yuanjiang Hot and Dry Valley Observation Station) focus on tropical forest, subtropical forest and Savanna vegetation respectively. There is flux tower in each station, and two rotatable canopy cranes in the subtropical and tropical forest.
The Ecohydrology Research Group (EHRG) was set up in 2014. The group has a diversity of people with quite a wide range of interests. Our research focuses on the mechanisms controlling water and soil processes in relation to environmental variables in tropical and subtropical forests. This includes investigating the ecohydrological function, soil and water conservation, soil erosion, manipulation and management of water and soil processes for the tropical and subtropical forests, restoration of degraded lands. We are also interested in the research on water-use strategies and patterns of plants in tropical or subtropical rainforest and plantations in relation to environment change, by using stable isotopic techniques and TDP method.
We welcome students do research based on their own interests and choice. You are welcome to join us as a postdoc.
