Postdoc Microbial biospherics (2yr)

We seek to appoint a postdoc (100% E13, 2yr) in microbial biospherics.

Microbial biospherics (see Rillig & Antonovics 2019, PNAS; doi:10.1073/pnas.1904326116) is the study of matter-closed, energy-open microbial microcosms. The successful candiate is interested in establishing such systems in the lab for experimental work, and could have a background in biology, ecology, microbiology, physics or other fields. We will also consider candidates with a background in ecological modeling to work on issues of microbial biospherics. Excellent English skills are necessary, and candidates must have a Ph.D. degree.

Tasks include development of a research project on microbial biospherics, collaborate widely within the lab (and beyond), and teaching (4 credits a semester, for example on microbial biospherics).

How to apply: send your cv, list of publications and cover letter in one pdf to matthias.rillig@fu-berlin.de quoting the position code 21223700 / 30 / 19 in the email title. Applications received by 21.8.2019 will receive full consideration.
