Freie Universität Berlin has recently announced 20 postdoctoral POINT fellowships, which are allocated to focus areas within the university. Our lab is a member of the Dahlem Center of Plant Sciences focus area, and we participate in the call with an opening for a postdoctoral fellowship with the broad topic of ecology and biodiversity of plant-soil interactions.
You can read the full announcement and all conditions here. The deadline is 13 March 2015. Make sure you carefully read the eligibility criteria.
We are hoping to attract some very good candidates that work on topics related to those currently researched in the lab. Examples are work on ecological synthesis, root colonizing fungal communities, Sebacinales, arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi, or root parasitic fungi. You have to prepare a project plan as part of your application, so it is worthwhile contacting me in advance.
Even though the fellowship is for 18 months only, in the past there frequently has been follow-up funding from other sources.
