10 Doctoral positions offered by International Research Training Group

The Sino-German Research Training Group (GRK 2309) “Geo-ecosystems in transition on the Tibetan Plateau” (TransTiP), funded by Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG), offers a research-oriented doctoral program analyzing different aspects of Earth surface fluxes on the Tibetan Plateau in four distinct project areas: Sediment fluxes, carbon fluxes, water fluxes and water quality, as well as human dimensions of climate change. The Tibetan Plateau represents one of the most vulnerable geo-ecosystems on Earth, being affected by accelerated climate warming and rapid intensification in land use. Therefore, the goals of TransTiP are to (a) quantify rates and magnitudes of sediment movement and transport, (b) identify the impact of land-use change on soil organic carbon storage and associated carbon fluxes, (c) determine how these processes have affected water balances, geo-ecosystem services, and biodiversity patterns, and (d) address the social context of climate change.

For the start as of January 1st 2021, TransTiP is now offering 10 PhD positions (3 years, 50-100%)

W4        Modelling data-driven impact of atmospheric and hydrogeophysical variables on water fluxes         LUH
W5a        The deep biosphere in lake sediments: distinguishing deeply buried microbial life and paleolimnological records        TUBS, DSMZ
W5b        Understanding nitrification in high-altitude lakes         TUBS, DSMZ
W6        Population structure and dynamics in freshwater ecosystems under climate change - A combined ecological-molecular approach        TUBS

The individual thesis topics and corresponding specific requirements are described at TransTiP is jointly run by Technische Universität Braunschweig, Leibniz Universität Hannover, and Friedrich Schiller Universität Jena, in cooperation with Max-Planck-Institute for Biogeochemistry, Jena, GeoforschungszeXXXum Potsdam, Institute of Tibetan Plateau Research, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Beijing, and Lanzhou University in China.

We are seeking highly motivated and qualified early career researchers holding a M.Sc. or equivalent degree with a suitable background in geophysical sciences, environmental sciences, biological sciences, or related fields. Applicants must have excellent communication skills in English, both written and oral, and should have strong affection to acquire interdisciplinary work and research as well as intercultural experiences.

The program includes a 6-month research stay at our partner institutions in China and provides excellent scientific and transferable skills training at all participating institutions. We offer exciting modern research projects in well-equipped laboratories using state-of-the-art technologies, a communicative atmosphere within an excellent scientific network, mutual exchange with a broad range of institutions and participation in international and national conferences and workshops.

Start of the program: January 1st 2021
Application deadline: May 31st 2020

Please submit your application (in English), consisting of one pdf-document, via email to Instructions can be found here: How to apply. Interviews with shortlisted candidates are planned for the period between June 29th and July 3rd, 2020, in Braunschweig during our Candidate Colloquium.
