In the frame of the TERRALAC project (Aquatic-terrestrial coupling stabilizes lake ecosystems) the Dept. Limnology of Stratified Lakes offers a PhD position starting from 01. January 2010. The position is limited to 3 years and the salary is equivalent to half of a TvöD position.
The research focuses on the effects of allochthonous organic matter on microbial activities in the water column, benthic biofilms and in the sediment of 2 shallow lakes. It is hypothesized that allochthonous organic matter input plays a crucial role for bistability (macrophyte vs. microplankton dominated state).

Duties and responsibilities

* Determination of bacterial activities in the water column, benthic biofilms and sediments
* Preparation of samples (DOM, POM and bacteria) for stabile isotope analysis
* Design and realization of field sampling as well as testing methods for measuring bacterial matter cycling in the lakes
* Quantification of gas fluxes (methane, CO2) from the lake into the atmosphere
* Determination of the aquatic P turn over

Requirements

* Completed studies in the field of microbiology and/or limnology
* Knowledge in chemical-analytical as well as microbiological methods
* Good command in English
* Good abilities for cooperation with all other groups of the TERRALAC project

The application of women is explicitly welcome. Disabled people with the same qualification will be preferentially employed. The application with all common documents should be submitted until 30th September 2009 to:
