Could you please forward the attached PhD opportunities at the International Max Planck Research School for Global Biogeochemical Cycles to potential applicants?
I apologize for cross postings.

The International Max Planck Research School for Global Biogeochemical Cycles is a cooperation between the Max Planck Institute for Biogeochemistry and the Friedrich-Schiller-University Jena. The IMPRS-gBGC offers PhD fellowships to outstanding students interested in research on the distribution of elements essential to life among the components of the Earth system — atmosphere, biosphere, lithosphere, land and oceans. Research in the IMPRS-gBGC discovers how these cycles function at a range of spatial and temporal scales, their interconnection and how they can change with an altering climate or human activity. Methods to tackle these questions include field observations, laboratory methods development, manipulative experiments, data mining and numerical modeling.
Besides their own scientific research culminating in the PhD thesis, the students complete an additional training program to develop a broad understanding of Earth system science and to effectively address questions related to the cycling of elements. Doctoral candidates benefit from a 3-month external research visit and courses aimed to improve interdisciplinary knowledge (e.g. statistics, Earth observation, modelling, analytical techniques) as well as training in transferable skills (e.g. presentations skills, scientific writing, project management).
For a list of individual PhD projects please refer to the attached PDF. Details are available our website (http://www.imprs-gbgc.de).
Application deadline is January 7, 2012. The next call for applications will start in May, 2012.
