– the International Co-operative Programme on Assessment and Monitoring of Air Pollution Effects on Forests operating under the UNECE Convention on Long-range Transboundary Air Pollution (CLRTAP) –
ICP Forests was launched in 1985 under the Convention on Long-range Transboundary Air Pollution (CLRTAP) of the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) in response to wide public and political concern over extensive forest damage that had been observed in Europe in the beginning of the 1980s. ICP Forests monitors forest condition in Europe at two monitoring intensity levels: The Level I monitoring is based on around 6000 observation plots on a systematic transnational grid of 16 x 16 km throughout Europe and beyond to gain insight into the geographic and temporal variations in forest condition while the Level II intensive monitoring comprises around 500 plots in selected forest ecosystems with the aim to clarify cause-effect relationships. At present 42 countries participate in ICP Forests.
The position of the Head of PCC is announced by the Thuenen Institute to be filled according to the conditions described in the linked advertisement: 18-164-WO-engl_0.pdf. Please, consider an application by yourself or forward the application to those who might be interested.

The Norwegian Institute for Water Research (NIVA) in Oslo is looking for a researcher in catchment biogeochemistry with a strong interest in water chemistry in semi-natural boreal and temperate catchments, and an understanding of long-term biogeochemical change, including acid-base chemistry, related to air pollution and climate.
