PhD Positions in Microbial Ecology and Sediment Biogeochemistry of Freshwater Systems

The Department of Biology at SDU invites applications for PhD positions to study the anaerobic oxidation of methane by microbes in freshwater sediments. The positions are associated with the project NOVAMOX (Novel Niches of Anaerobic Methane Oxidation and Their Biogeochemical Significance) funded by the European Research Council. The project explores how anaerobic microbes through their consumption of methane attenuate the emission of this greenhouse gas from freshwater systems and oceanic oxygen minimum zones, environments where such processes to date were largely ignored.

Main research objectives for these positions include the elucidation of pathways and identification and quantification of anaerobic methane-oxidizing microbes in freshwater sediments. Experimental techniques may include molecular biological analyses, cultivation and biogeochemical analyses including stable and radio isotopes. Hence, we seek candidates with a background in biology, (bio-)geochemistry, molecular microbiology, or related fields, and with experience in the analysis of environmental samples. The selected candidates will work closely together with the NOVAMOX team and other colleagues at the Department of Biology. The PhD should begin summer/early autumn 2018.

These positions are 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: 27 April 2018.
