Postdoc in Microalgal-Bacterial Interactions: Germany

The Cluster of Excellence Balance of the Microverse invites applications for a Postdoctoral Researcher Position(m/f/d) in Microalgal-Bacterial Interactions commencing on May 1, 2023 or at the earliest possible date thereafter.

Albeit microalgae are key contributors to global carbon fixation, their molecular interactions with other microbes are still little known. As our new Postdoc you will study microalgal-bacterial communities on microscopically tractable structured surfaces and introduce imbalance by providing biotic (e.g. helper bacteria) and abiotic factors (light and temperature).

To promote gender equality in science, applications by women are especially welcome. Candidates with severe disabilities will be given preference in the case of equal qualifications and suitability.
