For Bachelor students enrolled at a German university, we offer a paid internship in summer 2024 through the German Academic Exchange Service – DAAD, to work with tree rings and wood anatomy. Applications are possible until December 8, 2023, through the DAAD RISE worldwide portal. In the DAAD portal our offer is listed under the […]
Congratulations to our postdoctoral researcher Eunice Romero, who has been awarded a European Research Area (ERA) research grant, building on the MSCA Postdoctoral Fellowships programme. ERA improves access to excellence for researchers across the European Union and strengthens the balanced circulation of knowledge. With the approved budget, Eunice aims to contribute to a better understanding […]
We are seeking a PhD student starting 1 March 2024 to support our new project: “Joint effects of climate, atmospheric deposition, soil properties and tree nutrition on growth and forest health”. Application deadline is 3 December, 2023. Find the full advertisement under our ‘opportunities’ tab!
Jan Tumajer published a new paper in STOTEN: together with colleagues from the Universities in Ústí and Třeboň, they investigated how climate-growth responses (based on correlations) and phenology (based on process-based models and NDVI data) changed in white spruce and black spruce in NE Canada across elevational gradients and at different slope aspects. Find the […]
We conducted two international field campaigns in May and June to sample high-elevation pines in the Pyrenees (Pinus uncinata) and South Norway (Pinus sylvestris). In addition to dendrochronological sampling, we installed dendrometers and microclimate loggers (soil and air temperature and moisture/humidity) to better understand climate-growth responses at high temporal resolution – our sensors record data […]
Our group is hosting the 33rd European Dendroecological Fieldweek (EDF)! The EDF is organized every year by the Swiss Federal Institute for Forest, Snow and Landscape Research (WSL) as a practical field course for anyone interested in learning more about tree-ring research. This year’s EDF will take place in Pec pod Sněžkou in scenic Krkonoše […]
We congratulate our Ph.D. student Francesco Marotta who was awarded a GAUK (Charles University) student research grant for the duration of three years. It includes a personal fellowship and budget to carry out fieldwork for an own specific project. Francesco plans to use dendrometers and tree growth models to better understand climate-growth responses of pines […]
We have a new paper out in Ecosystems led by PhD student Jirka Mašek: our combined dendrochronological and remote sensing analysis for two dominant tree species in Central Europe suggests that the response of tree canopy and stem growth to climate might be decoupled, also depending on species and local topography.

We warmly welcome two new group members: Francesco Marotta, new PhD student from October, will study intra-annual growth responses of trees at the treeline to climate using wood anatomy and modeling as part of the GACR treeline project. Eunice Romero, new postdoc from November, will investigate drought resistance in wood anatomical features of seedlings at […]
