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 ZALF is a mem­ber of the Leib­niz Asso­ci­ation, main­tain­ing its headquar­ters in Müncheberg and field sta­tions and a mem­ber of the Leib­niz Research Alli­ance „INFEC­TIONS“ (

The aim of the research net­work is to use inter­dis­cip­lin­ary research and com­mu­nic­a­tion to develop new strategies and meth­ods for risk assess­ment, improved out­break man­age­ment and optim­ized con­tain­ment of anti­mi­cro­bial-res­ist­ant (AMR) patho­gens. We are com­mit­ted to the One Health approach which takes into account the inter­ac­tion between humans, anim­als and the envir­on­ment. All research is per­formed as mul­tidiscip­lin­ary, cooper­at­ive pro­jects of sev­eral part­ner insti­tutes. In sub­pro­ject 4, mech­an­isms and trans­mis­sion routes of AMR spread through arth­ro­pods as related to animal hus­bandries and urban areas will be invest­ig­ated for the model organ­ism ‚fly‘ in close col­lab­or­a­tion with the DSMZ (Braun­sch­weig), ATB (Pots­dam), FLI (Gre­if­swald) and IÖR (Dresden). The study res­ults are meant to derive inter­ven­tions and strategies to min­im­ize AMR devel­op­ment and spread.

We are offer­ing a part time pos­i­tion within 65 % for 36 months, start­ing from 01.08.2021 at our loc­a­tion in Müncheberg as
