The Hydrogeology Group at the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg (Germany)
seeks a highly motivated candidate for an interdisciplinary project on
biogeochemistry of groundwater and surface waters using aqueous chemistry
and stable isotopes of dissolved and particulate carbon as well as
dissolved oxygen.

Studies will take place on open water systems including hydropower dams,
lakes and rivers as well as in shallow groundwater systems. In addition
laboratory experiments with algae and metal oxides for industrial
production will be carried out.

Project objectives include establishment of oxygen and carbon dynamics in
various water systems with determination of sources and sinks of oxygen and
carbon including quantification of respiration and photosynthesis as well
as atmospheric exchange.

We offer:
Participation in an interdisciplinary research project
A vibrant academic environment
Well-equipped stable isotope and geochemical laboratories

Candidate profile:
Master degree (or equivalent) in Natural Sciences
Strong interest in biology and geochemistry
Willingness to carry out fieldwork in Germany and overseas
Ability to independently develop and perform experimental approaches •
Enthusiasm for scientific writing
Scientific results are expected to be published in international journals
and the candidate should also present results on conferences
A valid EU rivers licence (B) would be an advantage.

Starting date is as soon as possible. The salary is TVL E13 up to 65 %
together with health and social security benefits for 3 years (i.e. net
salary between 1400 and 1600 Euro).Please address further questions and
applications (cover letter, motivation statement, CV, academic transcripts
& certificates, publication list and contact details of referees) in one
coherent PDF file) to johannes.barth at fau.de before 30th of June 2017.
