PhD in Anaerobic Methane Oxidation in Freshwater Systems

The Department of Biology at SDU invites applications for a PhD in microbial ecology and sediment biogeochemistry. It is associated with the project NOVAMOX (Novel Niches of Anaerobic Methane Oxidation and Their Biogeochemical Significance) funded by the ERC, which explores the biogeochemistry and microbial ecology of methane consumption in anoxic freshwater systems and oceanic oxygen minimum zones. The kinetics and dynamics of anaerobic methane oxidation are investigated in order to determine the extent to which this process attenuates emissions of this greenhouse gas.

Main research objectives for this position include the identification and quantification of anaerobic methane-oxidizing microbes in freshwater sediments. Experimental techniques may include molecular biological analyses and cultivation combined with a range of biogeochemical analyses.

Hence, we seek a candidate with a background in biology, molecular microbiology, or related fields, and with experience in the analysis of environmental samples. The selected candidate will work closely together with the NOVAMOX team and other colleagues at the Department of Biology. The PhD should begin around April 2018.

This position is subject to the entry into force of grant agreement no 695599 by and between the European Research Council Executive Agency (ERCEA) and the University of Southern Denmark and thereby funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme.

Application deadline: 20 February 2018.
