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 Uni­versity of Bonn and the Leib­niz Centre for Agri­cul­tural Land­scape Research (ZALF) e.V. invite applic­a­tions for

2 Research Asso­ci­ates or PhD stu­dents (f/m/d)
Soil Micro­bi­o­logy and Biogeo­chem­istry of the Wet­land Meth­ane Cycle

(65% for 36 months)

Work­ing field:

Each insti­tu­tion will employ one coworker at the work places Bonn (Insti­tute of Crop Sci­ence and Resource Con­ser­va­tion, INRES) or Müncheberg/Ber­lin (RA Land­scape Func­tion­ing, Micro­bial Biogeo­chem­istry, ZALF).
Both announced pos­i­tions are part of the DFG pro­ject “Meth­ane Dynam­ics of Kettle Holes in a Post­gla­cial Agri­cul­tural Land­scape – Micro­bial Eco­logy and Biogeo­chem­istry (MeDKet)”. The aim of MeDKet is to gain deep insights into the soil and plant micro­bi­ome in kettle holes to explain net meth­ane sur­face fluxes. These small but very abund­ant wet­lands of the north­ern hemi­sphere play a not yet under­stood role for global meth­ane emis­sions. Kettle holes are often impacted by agri­cul­tural land-use with unknown effects on meth­ane emis­sions. Both cowork­ers will con­duct com­ple­ment­ary work includ­ing highly resolved CH4 and CO2 onsite meas­ure­ments and labor­at­ory exper­i­ments. The can­did­ates will use molecu­lar tech­niques such as 13C stable iso­tope prob­ing, meta­ge­n­om­ics, qPCR or metabar­cod­ing to assess the dynam­ics and eco­physiology of meth­an­o­trophs and meth­ano­gens. It is encour­aged that the two can­did­ates assist each other in field and labor­at­ory exper­i­ments.

How to ap­ply:

Women are par­tic­u­larly encour­aged to apply. Applic­a­tions from severely dis­abled per­sons with equal qual­i­fic­a­tions are favored. The Uni­versity of Bonn and ZALF are both com­mit­ted to diversity and equal oppor­tun­ity. Both are cer­ti­fied as fam­ily-friendly insti­tu­tions. Both aim to increase the pro­por­tion of women in areas in which women are under-rep­res­en­ted and to pro­mote par­tic­u­larly their careers. Both there­fore urge women with rel­ev­ant qual­i­fic­a­tions to apply.
