The Collaborative Research Centre AquaDiva (http://www.aquadiva.uni-jena.de) in central Germany invites applications for 10 doctoral and 4 postdoctoral positions, to be filled in 2021.
Funded by the German DFG for the last 8 years, the principle aim of the CRC AquaDiva is to increase our understanding of the links between surface and subsurface, especially how organisms inhabiting the subsurface CZ reflect and influence their physical, ecological, and geochemical environment, and affect water and matter transiting the Critical Zone from vegetation to groundwater. The research is highly interdisciplinary, involving related projects that use data collected at two Critical Zone sites in Central Germany, one in limestone and one in sandstone settings; publications from previous phases of the project can be found on the website.
The PhD positions are part of a graduate school structured around the project that ensures interaction across projects and disciplines. Descriptions and additional information for the individual positions can be found at http://www.aquadiva.uni-jena.de/Open_Positions.html. Work will be located at one of the several collaborating Institutions: the Friedrich Schiller University of Jena, the Max-Planck Institute for Biogeochemistry in Jena, and the Helmholz Center for Environmental Research in Leipzig.
