PhD position in soil science at SLU Umeå

The large pool of carbon stored as SOM (soil organic matter) in soils of high-latitude ecosystems contains more organic C than all global vegetation and the atmosphere combined. This makes formation and decomposition of SOM an extremely important feature of the global carbon balance. If you are interested in studying why and how boreal forest soils in the northern hemisphere are particularly important in this respect, here is a perfect PhD position that you may want to apply for!

PhD - "How is soil organic matter formed?"
