The main objective of the Soil Management and Global Change laboratory is to study the role of agricultural management on climate change mitigation and adaptation in Mediterranean agroecosystems. The team is involved in several research activities, such as:
- Determination of the mitigation potential of different management practices in both rainfed and irrigated agroecosystems.
- Evaluation adaptation strategies to diminish climate change impacts on Mediterranean agroecosystems.
- Optimization of agricultural management to enhance soil organic carbon (SOC) sequestration.
The internship will assist in the field and laboratory work that the research group performs on a daily basis. Field work consists on soil, gas and plant sampling in the six field experiments that the group maintains accross NE Spain.
The group, which is formed by two technicians, one PhD student, one postdoc researcher and one senior researcher, has a pleasant working environment.
