Leib­niz-Insti­tut für Agrar­tech­nik und Bio­öko­no­mie e.V. (ATB)

The Leib­niz Insti­tute for Agri­cul­tural Engin­eer­ing and Bioeconomy is a pion­eer and a driver of bioeconomy research. We cre­ate the sci­entific found­a­tion to trans­form agri­cul­tural, food, indus­trial and energy sys­tems into a com­pre­hens­ive bio-based cir­cu­lar eco­nomy. We develop and integ­rate tech­niques, pro­cesses and man­age­ment strategies, effect­ively con­ver­ging tech­no­lo­gies to intel­li­gently cross­link highly diverse bioeco­nomic pro­duc­tion sys­tems and to con­trol them in a know­ledge-based, adapt­ive and largely auto­mated man­ner. We con­duct research in dia­logue with soci­ety - know­ledge-motiv­ated and applic­a­tion-inspired.

Sub­ject to the approval of funds, as part of the pro­ject "Know­ledge-based pre­ci­sion crop pro­duc­tion in a mixed farm (Digi­Mix)” the fol­low­ing pos­i­tion is to be filled as of Octo­ber 1st, 2022

Sci­ent­ist (m/f/d) (100 %)


for the research field
„Assess­ment of cli­mate effi­ciency“

Working field:

The object­ive of the col­lab­or­at­ive pro­ject is to test, invest­ig­ate and demon­strate a digit­al­ised pro­cess chain for know­ledge-based and site-spe­cific crop pro­duc­tion in a mixed farm in Branden­burg. The suc­cess­ful applic­ant will meas­ure soil-borne green­house gas fluxes in an on-farm exper­i­ment at the Leib­niz Innov­a­tion Farm and ana­lyse net green­house gas emis­sions for site-spe­cific min­eral and organic fer­til­isa­tion. The pos­i­tion is assigned to the research group “Bioeco­nomic sys­tem mod­el­ling” in the depart­ment “Tech­no­logy Assess­ment and sub­stance cycles” in close cooper­a­tion with the depart­ment “Engin­eer­ing for crop pro­duc­tion” at ATB and the external part­ners Tech­nis­che Uni­versität Ber­lin, Uni­versity of Pots­dam and Ger­man Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ).
