The Leibniz Institute of Freshwater Ecology and Inland Fisheries (IGB) is invites applications for a PhD position focussing on flux and transformation of phosphorus in urban systems. The position is based at the Department of Chemical Analytics and Biogeochemistry in Berlin. Funding has been secured for 3 years.
We seek to recruit an excellent and highly motivated doctoral student with an interest in interdisciplinary work. The project will focus on the interplay of microbial and chemical mechanisms to forming P minerals. The results serve as basis for innovative managing of eutrophication and P recovery in urban areas. 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).
