Leib­niz-Zen­trum für Agrar­land­schafts­for­schung e.V. - HR

The mis­sion of the Leib­niz Centre for Agri­cul­tural Land­scape Research (ZALF) as a nation­ally and inter­na­tion­ally act­ive research insti­tute is to deliver solu­tions for an eco­lo­gic­ally, eco­nom­ic­ally and socially sus­tain­able agri­cul­ture – together with soci­ety. ZALF is a mem­ber of the Leib­niz Asso­ci­ation and is loc­ated in Müncheberg (approx. 35 minutes by regional train from Ber­lin-Lichten­berg). It also main­tains a research sta­tion with fur­ther loc­a­tions in Dede­low and Pau­lin­enaue.

The DFG-pro­ject “Small-scale pro­cesses, large effect: rhizo­sphere traits as key for P effi­ciency in upland rice” aims to elu­cid­ate the effect of rhizo­sphere and root traits of upland rice vari­et­ies on phos­phorus (P) uptake effi­ciency. The pro­ject is car­ried out in close cooper­a­tion with a Japan­ese research part­ner at the Japan­ese Inter­na­tional Research Centre for Agri­cul­tural Sci­ences (JIR­CAS). Four rice gen­o­types will be com­pared for the abil­ity to extract P with high effi­ciency from soil.

We are offer­ing for 3 months start­ing earli­est mid-Septem­ber 2021 (30 h per month) at our site in Müncheberg a pos­i­tion for a
