Job description

We offer nine positions (six PhD, three PostDoc) within the newly established DFG Research Unit MultiTroph FOR 5281.

The Research Unit MultiTroph is part of the Biodiversity-Ecosystem Functioning China (BEF-China) research platform. The platform was established in 2008 by Chinese, German and Swiss researchers (https://bef-china.com) and comprises the worldwide largest tree diversity experiment.
MultiTroph aims to identify mechanisms underlying the relationships between biodiversity and ecosystem functions across different trophic interactions along the experimental tree diversity gradient of BEF-China. The ultimate goal is to connect the different interaction types to large food webs in the context of tree diversity loss. Prof. Dr. Alexandra-Maria Klein from the University of Freiburg, (www.nature.uni-freiburg.de) leads the Research Unit in collaboration with Prof. Dr. Chao-Dong Zhu, Institute of Zoology, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Beijing, China (http://english.ioz.cas.cn) and with the German Centre for Integrative Biodiversity Research Halle-Jena-Leipzig (iDiv, www.idiv.de).

The starting date for all positions is October 1st, 2022 with some flexibility if necessary.
The submission deadline for applications is July, 15th 2022.
