SomSOM - Self-organisation of microbial soil organic matter turnover: Open positions

This project, funded by an ERC consolidator grant to Christina Kaiser, combines soil biogeochemistry, microbial ecology and complex systems science to investigate if microbial decomposition of organic matter is driven by emergent behaviour, and what consequences this has for soil C and N cycling.

Several PhD and Postdoc positions, as well as one position for a scientific programmer/data scientist are available in this project. For detailed information and how to apply see here: somsom_positions.pdf

Screening of applications will start in May 2019. Positions remain open until filled (page will be updated). Successful applicants can start as soon as possible.


Become a part of the FutureArctic network!

FutureArctic offers a training at the inter-sectoral edge of environmental science, computer science, artificial intelligence, online sensor engineering and social sciences, by building a pioneer ‘ecosystem-of-things’ at the  natural laboratory.
The network will recruit 15 Early Stage Researchers (ESRs), who will be incorporated in a multidisciplinary and international research team. Each ESR will be hosted in a beneficiary institution and will receive additional training during secondments at the industrial and/or other academic partners’ facilities.
One of the ESRs, working at microbiome physiology and microbial interactions, will be hosted at TER.
The position will start January 2020, we will start screening applications for it in November 2019.
