The position is to be filled as soon as possible, subject to negotiation. For the right candidate the faculty will be able to provide a start package to ease the transfer of a research group.

The Department of Environmental Science
Department of Environmental Science is an interdisciplinary department at Aarhus University. The expertise ranges from physics, chemistry, microbiology and mathematical modelling to social science, geography, economics and policy analysis. Both basic and applied research are conducted related to some of the major challenges facing society; such as pollution and pollution-control mechanisms, management of land, soil, water, air and biodiversity, protection of ecosystem services, climate change, and energy systems. Advisory services within these areas are offered to ministries and other stakeholders. Currently, about 140 staff and PhD-students are working at the department. Further information is found at http://www.envs.au.dk/en/. The department is co-located with part of Department of Bioscience, at Risø Campus, in Roskilde 35 kilometers west of Copenhagen.

The professor will be affiliated with the Section for Environmental Microbiology and Biotechnology. The unit employs approximately 30 staff members, focusing on microorganisms as providers of ecosystem services (e.g. C-sequestration, contaminant degradation) in soil and groundwater, Arctic/ice surface microbiota and its influence on climate and ice melting, use of eDNA for environmental monitoring of microorganisms and microfauna, aeromicrobiology, presence/phylogeny of virulence factors in bacteria, sustainable cycling of resources (circular bioeconomy). The section offers access to well-equipped molecular microbiology laboratories with Illumina DNA-sequencing platforms (MiSeq and NextSeq), as well as a new advanced Nano pore sequencer. New advanced servers are available for doing bioinformatics analysis. The section share coffee-machine and breakfast room with the section for environmental chemistry and toxicology with great collaborative opportunities within advanced chemical analysis including proteomics and metabolomics.
