Postdoc on marine fungi and biogeochemistry: Germany
The Leibniz Institute for Baltic Sea Research Warnemünde (IOW) invites applications for a position as a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Department of Biological Oceanography with a research focus on marine fungi (mycoplankton) and biogeochemistry
The methodology will span from single-cell to mesoscale flux measurements using biogeochemical, microbiological, and molecular tools. Potential tools include stable-isotope incubations, mass spectrometry, cell culturing, microscopy (incl. CARD-FISH), sequencing and bioinformatics, and nutrient analyses, which will be applied on laboratory-grown co-cultures and field-sampled communities. The candidate will be responsible for the experimental work in the laboratory and in the field as well as for the sample analyses, computational data analyses, and, finally, drafting the novel findings for submission to peer-reviewed journals. Implementing ideas from the candidate is welcomed to further advance the project and the candidate’s career.
Application deadline: 19 Nov 2023
