Nicole Börner ------------------------------------- CALL FOR APPLICATIONS: 9 Doctoral positions and 1 PostDoc position The Sino-German Research Training Group (GRK 2309) “Geo-ecosystems in transition on the Tibetan Plateau” (TransTiP) offers a research-oriented doctoral program analyzing different aspects of Earth surface fluxes on the Tibetan Plateau in three distinct project areas: Sediment fluxes, carbon fluxes, water fluxes and water quality. TransTiP is jointly run by Technische Universität Braunschweig, Leibniz Universität Hannover, and Friedrich Schiller Universität Jena, in cooperation with the Institute of Tibetan Plateau Research and Lanzhou University in China. The Tibetan Plateau is of crucial importance for the global hydrological, energy and element cycles and represents one of the most vulnerable geo-ecosystems on Earth, being affected by accelerated climate warming and rapid intensification in land use. The scientific goals of TransTiP are to (a) quantify rates and magnitudes of sediment movement and transport, (b) identify the impact of land-use change on soil organic carbon storage and associated carbon fluxes, and (c) determine how these processes have affected water balances, geo-ecosystem services, and biodiversity patterns. For the start as of January 1^st 2018, TransTiP is now offering: 9 PhD positions(3 years, 50-100%) 1 PostDoc position(metabarcoding and ancient DNA analysis from sediment cores,2 years, 100%, with possible extension for another 2 years) We are seeking highly motivated and qualified early career researchers interested to work in the wide field of geobiosciences. The individual thesis topics and corresponding specific requirementsare described athttps://www.tu-braunschweig.de/irtg-transtip/research/projects <https://www.tu-braunschweig.de/irtg-transtip>. <https://www.tu-braunschweig.de/irtg-transtip/research/projects> We expect: -Excellent University degree (equivalent diploma/master) with expertise in geophysical sciences, environmental sciences, biological sciences, or related fields -Strong scientific motivation -Strong affection to acquire interdisciplinary work and research experience -Fluent verbal and written English communication skills -Participation in the qualification program of the Research Training Group -Test of scientific communication and personal motivation; short-listed applicants will be invited to present and discuss their MSc-thesis work in English - PostDoc: first author papers in high-quality international journals and teaching experience, candidates with international working experience are especially welcome. Expertise in molecular laboratory work, next-generation sequencing techniques, and bioinformatic analysis of ancient or environmental DNA is desirable.
