The Leibniz Institute of Freshwater Ecology and Inland Fisheries (IGB) invites applications for a postdoc position in Stream Ecology starting ideally on 1 April 2021. The position is based at the Department of Experimental Limnology on the shores of Lake Stechlin located 1 hour north of the city of Berlin, Germany. The initial contract is for 2 years with an option to extend it for an additional two years.
We seek to recruit an excellent and highly motivated postdoctoral scientist with an interest in ecosystem functioning and microbial dynamics associated with litter decomposition in streams. The position is part of a broad research consortium involving partners in Germany and abroad, funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) as part of the Collaborative Research Center 1439 “Multilevel response to stressor increase and release in stream ecosystems” (RESIST).
