Frontiers in Freshwater Science:

2 Junior Research Group Leaders

We are seeking to recruit outstanding scientists to establish innovative research programmes with high international visibility. The specific area of expertise is open, but the research should complement and interlink with existing research programmes at IGB (<http://www.igb-berlin.de>www.igb-berlin.de). S/he should have a clear vision and strategy for the development of an internationally recognised research programme in freshwater science or inland fisheries.

IGB is the largest freshwater ecology institute in Germany. It offers excellent laboratory and field facilities for interdisciplinary research, including large-scale experimental infrastructure and long-term research programmes. By working in close partnership with the scientific community worldwide, government agencies, and the private sector, innovative tools are developed to meet the existing and emerging challenges of freshwater ecosystems and human societies. The working language at IGB is English to facilitate efficient communication among our increasingly international scientific staff.

The position includes a competitive salary, support for a doctoral student, and a start-up package to cover initial research expenses.

Please submit a full curriculum vitae, including a letter of motivation, statements addressing research interests and academic leadership goals, copies of five representative publications, and the names and contact information of three referees. Please send all documents as a single PDF file to co@igb-berlin.de. Review of the applications will start on 1 October 2012 and continue until the positions are filled. For further enquiries, please contact Prof. Dr. Klement Tockner, Director of IGB (tockner@igb-berlin.de).
