Open PhD Position: Electrical Field Root Sensing
Applications are invited for a Doctoral Researcher position in the project "Structural and functional field root sensing using tomographic and endoscopic electrical impedance spectroscopy" funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) in the framework of the Cluster of Excellence "PhenoRob: Robotics and Phenotyping for Sustainable Crop Production" (http://www.phenorob.de). In the project, spectral electrical impedance tomography (sEIT) will be applied in controlled rhizotron experiments to establish soil-root electrical relationships for the structural and functional monitoring of crop root systems at the field scale. The project contributes to PhenoRob's Core Project CP3 ("The Soil-Root-Zone").
The position is to be filled as soon as possible, at the latest from April 1, 2020, and is limited to December 31, 2023.
Please send your application in electronic form (as a single pdf) with the relevant documentation (including letter of motivation, curriculum vitae, copy of Master's degree certificate and transcript of record, names and contact details of two referees) by January 6, 2020 to Prof. Dr. Andreas Kemna, Chair of Geophysics, Institute of Geosciences, University of Bonn, E-mail: email@example.com.
