  1. PhD project: Assessing biochemical traits of different tree species and their effects on soil nutrient cycling (Jena, Germany)

    international Max Planck Research School for Global Biogeochemical Cycles, Jena, Germany
    Application Deadline: 05 September 2017

    Project description In terrestrial ecosystems, nutrient cycling is primarily driven by the interaction between plants and decomposer organisms below the surface. Plant community composition defines the spatial and temporal distribution, as well as the amount and quality of OM inputs, which in turn determine energy resource and nutrient availability (i.e., … Read more ]

  2. PhD project: How do canopy-generated input patterns at the forest floor affect flow and transport of water and matter beyond the subsoil? (Jena, Germany)

    International Max Planck Research School for Global Biogeochemical Cycles, Jena, Germany
    Application Deadline: 05 September 2017

    Project description Forest canopies strongly affect water and matter fluxes, especially by generating substantial heterogeneity and forming organized infiltration and flow patterns. The canopy does not only impede fluxes, but also converges water flow within the canopy and creates dripping points and stemflow. Previously deposited or mobilisable matter is released … Read more ]

  3. PhD project: Influence of plant and soil diversity on molecular composition of dissolved organic matter (Jena, Germany)

    International Max Planck Research School for Global Biogeochemical Cycles, Jena, Germany
    Application Deadline: 05 September 2017

    Project description Dissolved organic matter (DOM) is a key component in the global carbon cycle and knowledge on its composition and reactivity is crucial to understand biogeochemical (Cole et al., 2007; Tranvik et al., 2009). DOM represents a snapshot of ecosystem activities and that DOM contains ecosystem-specific molecules (Roth et … Read more ]

  4. PhD project: Quantification of biotic and abiotic impacts on soil carbon dynamics (Jena, Germany)

    International Max Planck Research School for Global Biogeochemical Cycles, Jena, Germany
    Application Deadline: 05 September 2017

    Project description Soils store more than two third of the terrestrial organic carbon. It is therefore important to understand soil organic carbon dynamics as soils can act as both as carbon source and sink, depending on the environmental conditions. Carbon dynamics are driven by abiotic and biotic factors. Abiotic factors … Read more ]

  5. PhD project: From microscale processes to macroscale ore deposits (Jena, Germany)

    International Max Planck Research School for Global Biogeochemical Cycles, Jena, Germany
    Application Deadline: 05 September 2017

    Project description Scaling-up is a problem long known, not only in biotechnology, but also for the identification of natural processes. It comes especially true for systems, in which the activity of microorganisms leads to changes of geological impact, like the formation of superficial ore deposits. Here, the growth conditions in … Read more ]

  6. Scholarship Limnology

    Brandenburg University of Technology Cottbus-Senftenberg, Cottbus, Bad Saarow, Germany
    Application Deadline: Open until the position is filled

    Cluster “Signatures of Disturbed Landscapes – Case Study Post-Mining Landscapes” of the BTU Graduate Research School The Brandenburg University of Technology (BTU) Cottbus-Senftenberg will launch new Clusters of the Graduate Research School (GRS) as part of the strategy to strengthen the BTU research profile. Clusters are flexible units that shall … Read more ]

  7. PhD project: Understanding the temporal filtering of climate variability by terrestrial ecosystems in the neotropics (Jena, Germany)

    International Max Planck Research School for Global Biogeochemical Cycles, Jena, Germany
    Application Deadline: 05 September 2017

    Project description Understanding how vegetation responds to today’s hydrometeorlogical variability is a prerequisite to anticipate changes under climate change conditions. Despite of major advances in the field, triggered e.g. by novel high-resolution remote sensing information, we lack a precise description of patterns of vegetation variability along the multiple and complex … Read more ]

  8. PhD project: Assessing the effects of tree neighborhood, size and three-dimensional structure on canopy drainage with LiDAR (Jena, Germany)

    International Max Planck Research School for Global Biogeochemical Cycles, Jena, Germany
    Application Deadline: 05 September 2017

    Project description Precipitation inputs at the forest floor are strongly modified by redistribution of water within canopies. Some of those processes, especially the formation of stemflow, can lead to hotspots of infiltration rates surpassing 10-100 fold the above canopy rainfall intensity. Among the many factors affecting stemflow yield, most are … Read more ]

  9. PhD project: Respiration and carbon refixation in Mediterranean and temperate trees (Jena, Germany)

    International Max Planck Research School for Global Biogeochemical Cycles, Jena, Germany
    Application Deadline: 05 September 2017

    Project description Every year plants emit CO2 to the atmosphere via respiration at a rate which is an order of magnitude higher than fossil fuel emissions. Currently, this emission is more than compensated by plant photosynthesis, mainly in forest ecosystems. But this may change in the next few decades due … Read more ]

  10. Scholarship Biogeochemistry
