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). The institute also maintains locations in Dedelow and Paulinenaue.
The Isotope Biogeochemistry and Gas Fluxes group is looking for a student assistant to support field and laboratory work in various projects investigating fluxes and pools within the phosphorus and nitrogen cycle. The projects aim to obtain a comprehensive picture of the processes related to the transformation and storage of nitrogen and phosphorus in agricultural soils. Additionally, we will develop strategies and instruments to minimize losses of these elements and, thus, improve their efficient use in plant production in the context of climate change.
We are offering a 6 month position (extension possible), starting earliest 1st April (40h per month) located at ZALF in Müncheberg.
