PhD stipends for research on global biogeochemical cycles
Salary: 15,000.00 – 21,000.00
Location: Germany
Employer: IMPRS for Global Biogeochemical Cycles
Type: Full Time – Student/Graduate/Internship
Category: Student Opportunities
Required Education: Masters

Job Description
The elements key to life such as carbon, oxygen, hydrogen, and nitrogen are continuously exchanged among the land, ocean and atmosphere in what are known as global biogeochemical cycles. Research in the IMPRS-gBGC discovers how these cycles function, how they are interconnected, and how they can change with climate or human activity.
Students participate in ongoing research comprising field observations, method development, experiments, and modeling. Students will also benefit from a three-month external research visit, specialised courses in e.g. statistics, Earth observation, modelling and analytical techniques, as well as in soft skills.

The school is thus an excellent starting platform for a successful career in a field related to global biogeochemical cycles and Earth System Science.

Individual PhD projects deal with various aspects of global biogeochemical cycles. These projects are currently open for application:

Atmosphere
– The carbon cycle of northern Eurasia studied at the Zotino Tall Tower Observatory, central Siberia

Biosphere & Ecosystems
– Data-driven modeling of global carbon and water cycles
– Verifying, improving and extending EO-LDAS radiative-transfer modelling constraints for the application of the Sentinel-1 and -2 radar and optical sensors
– Data-based models to understand biogeochemical cycles: Accounting for temporal autocorrelation

Soils, soil microbiology & soil hydrology
– Meadow ants as physical ecosystem engineers and switches for biogeochemical heterogeneity

Paleoclimate
– Transfer of environmental and climatic signals into volcanically influenced lake sediments
– Timing of long-term carbonate mobilisation in a limestone aquifer, subproject “Hydrogeochemistry”

We accept applications for PhD scholarships until August 05, 2012. Find out more and apply online: http://www.imprs-gbgc.de

NOTES: 7 openings.
Additional Salary Information: 1200 Euro/month in the first year, 1300 Euro in the 2nd+3rd year
