PhD student position in microbial ecology with focus on the
importance of biodiversity for ecosystem functioning.
Bacteria and Archaea play central roles in ecosystems. It is,
however, still an open question whether the diversity within
these organism groups matters for ecosystem functioning. The
aim of this project is therefore to increase our knowledge about
if and how microbial diversity matters for carbon cycling in
aquatic ecosystems. The project will contain field studies as well
as laboratory experiments and diversity will be studied using
modern molecular tools.
The successful candidate should have a Masters degree or an
equivalent degree in ecology, limnology, marine ecology,
microbiology or related fields.
