Ecology



The Leibniz-Institute for Baltic Sea Research (IOW)
announces a full-time position for a 



 



Senior Scientist/Post-doc



 



within the department of Biological Oceanography,
starting on October 15, 2013. The payment
for this position will be EG13 according to the German TV-L. The position will
be limited to 5 years (2+3).



 



 



Challenge



The IOW is an independent institute of the Leibniz
Society with a research emphasis on coastal and marginal seas in general and the
Baltic Sea in particular. The scientists of the four departments (Physical
Oceanography, Marine Chemistry, Biological Oceanography and Marine Geology) are
working interdisciplinary within a common research program and with the support
of a special working group for the development of new technologies. The
advertised position is within the Working Group “Microbial Ecology“ (Head:
Klaus Jürgens). One focus are the microbial communities and biogeochemical
transformations in marine oxygen deficient systems. Innovative research is
planned by a combination of approaches, including “MetaOmics”, single cells
sequencing, molecular diversity analyses and biogeochemical process
measurements.
