9 PhD student fellowships in bio-geo-interactions in GRK1257 (Jena, Germany) (Jena)

Since the research subject of microbial impact on weathering, reactive transport and remineralization is strictly interdisciplinary, the faculty comprises three geological, one mineralogical, two soil science, one chemical and two microbiological expert groups. With this research profile, a PhD program is established that is characterized by its scientific excellence and strong international context and that will stimulate interaction between students coming from different scientific disciplines.
Applicants for the scholarships have to show that they are among the 5% top graduates of their bachelor year, applicants of the PhD student fellowships should have an excellent diploma or MSc (more than 80%) in the field of biology, geology, chemistry or comparable certification.

Vacant PhD projects:

•Bioconversion of mobile organo-mineral geosorbents: microbial effects on reactivity and mobility (Prof. Totsche)

•Linking iron cycling to the stabilization and spatial distribution of soil organic matter (Prof. Trumbore)

•Microbial formation of heavy metal containing secondary minerals (Prof. Küsel)

•Microbial influence on sorption of heavy metals to Fe-, Mn-, Al-(oxi)hydroxides (Prof. Buechel)

•Investigation of the microbial impact on the alteration and degradation of clay minerals (Prof. Gaupp)

•Mineral transformation and biomineralization with stibnite and tetrahedrite (Prof. Majzlan)

•Investigation of the microbial mineralization process by means of spectroscopical methods (Prof. Popp)

•Biomolecular mechanisms of Corg mobilization (Prof. Kothe)

•Understanding the mechanisms of organic matter degradation from black pelites (Prof. Gleixner)
