Descripción de la oferta de trabajo:

Global challenges regarding energy and climate change, the environment, health, food safety, technology and renewable solutions, use and conservation of land and natural resources, and development of the bio-economy, requires greater effort. NMBU is well equipped to conduct further research in these fields. NMBU's expertise spans entire value chains and includes both basic and applied research.


On 1 January 2014, the Norwegian School of Veterinary Science and the University of Life Sciences merged and became -NMBU, the Norwegian University of Life Sciences. NMBU has 1700 employees and 5200 students, and is currently located on two campuses - Ås, about 30 km south of Oslo, and Adamstuen in Oslo. In 2020, the new research- and education-building for veterinary science will be completed and all of NMBU will then be located at Campus Ås.

The faculty has ca. 600 students and approximately 90 PhD-students. The faculty's employees contribute significantly in their fields of expertise, both nationally and internationally and have a high level of scientific output. For more information:



Research project

The PhD study will be part of the project "Mitigating Agricultural Greenhouse Gas Emissions by improved pH management of soils (MAGGE-pH)". The project builds on a network of 12 field sites across Europe and New Zeeland representing various soil pH management strategies. Project start up: Autumn 2017



Main tasks

The successful candidate will contribute to the MAGGE-pH project by

  • Characterizing the N transformation kinetics in soils from field experiments run by the consortium, using an existing soil incubation system
  • Exploring the effect of nitrification inhibitors on N2O and NO turnover by nitrification and denitrification in controlled laboratory experiments
  • Participating in field experiments employing a field flux robot (FFR-1) and analyse flux an ancillary data
  • Exploring spatial variability of N2O emissions in whole fields by FFR campaigns and develop synoptic sensing strategies to assess the underlying drivers, among them by on-the-go pH measurements

The candidate is expected to submit a PhD education plan (including course
