The position is available in the Department Microbial Ecology and Diversity Research. Appointment will be for 3 years. The salary-level will be TV-L 13, according to qualification. The position is offered full time but not appropriate for part time work. The starting date envisioned is July 1, 2023.
State-of-the-art Omics and cultivation methods are applied to identify and analyze core microbiomes and microbiome keystone taxa from selected use cases (soil, seeds, marine environment). This involves the study of molecular abundance patterns across environmental gradients, novel network analyses, the determination of the activity status of microbial cells, functional analysis through metagenomics, targeted cultivation, and the reconstruction of synthetic consortia. Work is funded by the EU within the project MICROBE - MICRObiome Biobanking Enabler and involves a close interaction with collaboration partners, both on a national and international level.
