Six PhD positions available at International Max Planck Research School
for Global Biogeochemical Cycles (IMPRS-gBGC), Jena, Germany

The IMPRS-gBGC offers fully funded positions to outstanding students
interested in research on biogeochemical cycles in the Earth system. The
school provides excellent research possibilities for students to obtain
a PhD degree in a 3-years graduate program.

The Research School

Successful applicants will be part of the International Max Planck
Research School for Global Biogeochemical Cycles. Research at the school
focuses on the distribution of elements essential to life and the
climate among the components of the Earth system and the interaction
between biosphere, atmosphere, lithosphere, land and oceans.

Besides doing research for their PhD project, PhD candidates 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.
