The mission of the Leibniz Centre for Agricultural Landscape Research (ZALF) as a nationally and internationally active research instituteis to deliver solutions for an ecologically, economically and socially sustainable agriculture –together with society.ZALF is a member of the Leibniz Association and is located in Müncheberg (approx. 35 minutes by regional train from Berlin-Lichtenberg). It also maintains a research station with further locations in Dedelow and Paulinenaue.
The Research Area 1 Landscape Functioning of ZALF (RA1) investigates the functioning of agricultural landscapes and aims at contributions to the United Nations’ Sustainability Goals (SDGs) Zero Hunger, Climate Action, and Life onLand.
We are offering in the WG Isotope Biogeochemistry and Gas Fluxes and WG Microbial Biogeochemistry of the RA1 65% positionstemporarily limited for 36 months at our location in Müncheberg for
2 Doctoral Coworkers (m/f/d)
The announced positions are part of the project “CropRhizoSOM-Erosion-induced Impact onCarbon Dynamics in a Crop Rhizosphere-Microbiota-Soil Organic Matter-Continuum” funded by DFG.The tentative start of the project is Mai 2020.
CropRhizoSOM investigates a cereal-soil model system. Methods being used range from spatially resolved radioactive tracer experiments, analysis of functional dynamics of the microbiome (metagenome-based) and soil enzyme activities. Together with our collaborators from Biology Centre CAS and the University of South Bohemia (Czech Republic) the dynamics of SOM will be assessed. Principal investigators of the project are Prof. Jürgen Augustin, Dr. Rainer Remus, Dr. Stephan Wirth and Prof. Steffen Kolb.
