The Leibniz Institute of Freshwater Ecology and Inland Fisheries (IGB) invites applications for a PhD position to assess greenhouse gas dynamics (GHG) in natural and engineered urban aquatic systems. The overarching goal is to determine the GHG footprint of a whole city with a particular focus on methane. The position is based at the Department of Experimental Limnology on Lake Stechlin north of Berlin. Funding has been secured for 3 years.
We seek to recruit an excellent and highly motivated doctoral student with an interest in greenhouse gas dynamics in urban aquatic systems. The position is part of a graduate school funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) as part of the Research Training Group “Urban Water Interfaces” (UWI). The consortium involves multiple fellow students, scientists and engineers at IGB and the Berlin Institute of Technology (TU Berlin).
