PH.D. Position in Plant Ecology
University of Hamburg. Hamburg, 22.06.2017
Ph.D. Positions in Plant ecologyare available within the project MediAN: "Mechanisms of ecosystem services in hardwood floodplain forests: Scientific analysis and optimization of conservation management". Pristine hardwood forests belong to the most species-rich ecosystems in Central Europe. Besides their ability to provide diverse habitats, they offer valuable ecosystem services for water retention, carbon sequestration or climate protection. The overall research aim of the project MediAN is a better understanding of the mechanisms underlying the ecosystem services of hardwood floodplain forests and, further, to quantify the spatio-temporal variability of these services. Scientists from the fields of Plant Ecology (University of Hamburg), Soil Science (University of Hamburg), Soil Zoology (Senckenberg Museum of Natural History Görlitz), Nature Conservation (Helmholtz-Centre for Environmental Research Leipzig) and Landscape Economy (TU Berlin) work together to analyse which biodiversity components affect the ecosystem services and how to assess them. We are looking for highly motivated young researchers who are interested to work in an interdisciplinary project. At the University of hamburg, we offer 1 Ph.D. position (4 years 65 % at the salary level TV-L13) in the fields of plant ecology (MediAN-02): Median-02: The relevance of biotic interactions for the establishment and vitality of trees in hardwood floodplain forests will be evaluated. Research will focus on root/mycorrhiza dynamics and on neighbourhood effects on the water and carbon balance of trees and herbaceous vegetation.
