PhD Position in Marine Microbial Ecology 'Exploring Biological Nitrogen Fixation in Danish Coastal Sediments'

A three-year PhD position in marine microbial ecology is offered at the Department of Biology, University of Southern Denmark, Odense, Denmark. The position starts 1 April 2021 and will be associated with the four-year research project ‘Future stimulated nitrogen fixation: threatening the health of coastal ecosystems?’ funded by Independent Research Fund Denmark. The project is a synergy with the University of Copenhagen (Lasse Riemann), and Aarhus University in Roskilde (Stiig Markager), and will benefit from a strong collaboration with the Baltic Sea research Institute, Warnemünde, Germany (Maren Voss), and the University of Rhode Island, USA (Robinson Fulweiler). 

Two PhD students will be employed within the project: one at the University of Southern Denmark focusing on benthic processes, and one at the University of Copenhagen (UCPH) focusing on pelagic processes. The two students will collaborate closely with respect to sampling and sample analyses. The SDU PhD student will focus on the magnitude and seasonality of N2 fixation in Danish coastal sediments. This will include rate measurements using gas analysis, isotope quantification, molecular identification of the actively N2 fixing groups, and manipulation studies to explore parameters governing N2 fixation. The work will entail cutting-edge molecular, physiological, and biogeochemical approaches (Real-Time PCR, high-throughput sequencing, metagenomics, bioinformatics, and 15N tracer techniques, including nano-SIMS) in association with laboratory studies and field sampling.

Qualifications/requirements
Candidates will jointly be selected by Carolin Löscher and Lasse Riemann. We are looking for highly motivated, dedicated and ambitious candidates with:
• An MSc degree in Biology, Geosciences or similar, experience in biogeochemical rate measurements preferably with isotope labelling, microbial culture work, and/or NGS data analysis would be an asset
• Project management and project development skills
• Interest to travel and participate in field experiments nationally and internationally
• Strong communication and collaborative skills and an interest in working in an interdisciplinary environment
• Proficiency in spoken and written English.

We offer:
• A three-year PhD position in a stimulating and supportive, international young research team, and embedded in a collaborative larger project between three Danish Universities and international collaborators
• Access to state-of-the-art equipment, facilities and infrastructure
• Opportunity to interact with an extensive network of national and international collaborators
• A competitive salary and social benefits (e.g. health coverage, parental leave, social security etc.)
• Dedicated assistance and support with various practical, social, and legal aspects (housing, visa, administration, tax etc.), especially for international candidates through our international staff office (ISO) and department.

Deadline: 18 January 2021.
