ABOUT THE RESEARCH TEAMS
You will be hired by UGent-Woodlab in collaboration with the Laboratory of Tree-Ring Research (LTRR) at the University of Arizona. The Laboratory of Wood Technology, or short UGent-Woodlab (www.woodlab.be), is a research team of UGent, located at the Faculty of Bioscience Engineering. UGent-Woodlab aims at an integrated strategy for the forestry-wood chain to contribute to the bio-economy. Furthermore, the team tackles climate change issues by learning from trees as archives of the past and biosensors of the present. UGent-Woodlab has strong expertise in non-destructive X-ray CT scanning of wood ( www.ugct.ugent.be; www.dendrochronomics.ugent.be). The LTRR is the world's foremost department specialized in dendrochronology, with particular expertise in tree-ring based climate reconstruction and geochronology.
Within the context of a recently approved FWO project on millennium-scale temperature reconstruction using X-ray CT-based MXD of bristlecone pine (“Accurate temperature reconstructions and climate change mapping in tree rings of ancient bristlecone pines, the longest-living trees in the world”), we are looking for an outstanding postdoctoral candidate to work on tree-ring based temperature reconstructions and X-ray CT technology.
