Postdoctoral researcher in soil biogeochemistry/microbiology: Czech Republic
Requirements: Within a three years period, a representative set of bacteria and fungi will be grown in pure cultures in the laboratory using different carbon sources and media by metabolomics. The biomass will be added to soil and its fate will be determined in a long-term incubation experiment by measuring soil chemistry and stoichiometry, microbial activity, biomass and community composition. The applicant is therefore required to have experience with OMIC techniques and basic microbial methods such as the extraction of DNA and metabolites. Basic knowledge of statistical analysis, R, python or an equivalent are beneficial. Good communication skills and teamwork are required.
