  1. PhD project: Micropalaeontological and shell chemistry investigations on Late Quaternary water balance changes in South Africa

    International Max Planck Research School for Global Biogeochemical Cycles, Jena, Germany
    Application Deadline: 15 March 2017

    Project description Indisputably the climate of southern Africa and thus the distribution and intensity of precipitation is mainly controlled by variations in the ocean currents around the Cape Agulhas as well as by the interplay between competing atmospheric circulations. Despite many already existing studies the relationships between the complex and … Read more ]

  2. PhD project: Unraveling climate dynamics in the winter rainfall zone of South Africa using sedimentary archives

    International Max Planck Research School for Global Biogeochemical Cycles, Jena, Germany
    Application Deadline: 15 March 2017

    Project description The here offered position is closely associated with subproject 1 of the project RAiN (Regional Archives for Integrated iNvestigations, https://www.marum.de/R_A_I_N.html). RAiN focuses on closely integrated investigations of terrestrial and marine environmental archives in order to assess paleoenvironmental change within the three different rainfall zones of South Africa. In … Read more ]

  3. PhD project: Storage and stabilization of manure-derived organic C in grasslands soils: mineral-organic associations and aggregates and soil structure

    International Max Planck Research School for Global Biogeochemical Cycles, Jena, Germany
    Application Deadline: 15 March 2017

    Project description 81% of the terrestrial organic C is stored in soils, whereas only 19% are bound in vegetation. The degradation of soil organic matter is therefore a crucial factor for the global C cycle and the release of CO2 to the atmosphere. Stabilization of carbon in soil depends on … Read more ]

  4. PhD project: Surface-to-atmosphere emissions: Formation and fate of volatiles from microbial soil communities

    International Max Planck Research School for Global Biogeochemical Cycles, Jena, Germany
    Application Deadline: 15 March 2017

    Project description Volatile emissions from soils contribute substantially to the organic components in the atmosphere. Upon oxidative transformation biogenic volatiles can contribute to aerosol formation and cloud condensation with direct consequences on the local climate.1 Despite their abundance and potential relevance little is known about the sources and fate of … Read more ]

  5. PhD project: Quantification of biotic and abiotic impacts on soil carbon dynamics

    International Max Planck Research School for Global Biogeochemical Cycles, Jena, Germany
    Application Deadline: 15 March 2017

    Project description Soils store the vast majority of terrestrial organic carbon. It is therefore important to understand the soil carbon dynamics as the soil can act as both as carbon source and sink under changing environmental conditions. These carbon dynamics are driven by abiotic and biotic factors. Abiotic factors like … Read more ]

  6. PhD project: From microscale processes to macroscale ore deposits

    International Max Planck Research School for Global Biogeochemical Cycles, Jena, Germany
    Application Deadline: 15 March 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 ]

  7. PhD project: Ecological process understanding across time-scales

    International Max Planck Research School for Global Biogeochemical Cycles, Jena, Germany
    Application Deadline: 15 March 2017

    Project description Long-term observations in ecology often contain signatures of multiple processes. These different and potentially interacting processes may vary on different time-scales – ranging from characteristic responses at the scale of seconds, to annual variations, and centennial oscillations. Consequently, these different time-scales may “function” in very different ways: for … Read more ]

  8. PhD project: Novel approaches to spatio-temporal trend detection in environmental data

    International Max Planck Research School for Global Biogeochemical Cycles, Jena, Germany
    Application Deadline: 15 March 2017

    Project description The analysis of spatio-temporal environmental data is of critical importance for studies of climate and ecosystem change. In order to detect patterns and trends in environmental variables, it is necessary to apply a large number (often millions) of statistical tests to time series of gridded geospatial data. This … Read more ]

  9. PhD project: Deep learning for identifying dynamic memory and spatial context effects in Earth observations

    International Max Planck Research School for Global Biogeochemical Cycles, Jena, Germany
    Application Deadline: 15 March 2017

    If (you computer scientist || you physicist|| you statistician ||you mathematician || you similar) == TRUE { Still today, many machine-learning approaches fail in encoding temporal memory effects that typically characterize dynamical natural systems. Hence, ecosystem and Earth System dynamics are often hard to model and predict. Yet, today modern … Read more ]

  10. Machine learning and modelling for Earth Science Science - open PhD projects

    International Max Planck Research School for Global Biogeochemical Cycles, Jena, Germany
    Application Deadline: 15 March 2017

    In cooperation with the Friedrich Schiller University Jena, the Max Planck Institute for Biogeochemistry houses a unique and flexible research program that grants German and foreign students a broad selection of learning opportunities while still maintaining a research focus. The IMPRS-gBGC offers a PhD program specializing in global biogeochemistry and … Read more ]
