Postdoc Position on the Biogeochemistry of Ammonia-oxidizing Archaea in Oxygen Depleted Environments

A two year postdoc position is available at the research unit Nordcee (https://www.nordcee.dk/), Department of Biology, University of Southern Denmark. The successful candidate will join a team of scientists studying ammonia-oxidizing archaea in oxygen limited environments led by Assistant Professor Beate Kraft. 

The project:
Ammonia-oxidizing archaea are key players in the nitrogen cycle of the world’s oceans. They are frequently found in oxygen-depleted environments like marine oxygen-minimum zones or sediments though they are thought to have a strictly aerobic physiology. We found evidence for a so far undiscovered anaerobic metabolic pathway in a cultured representative. The aim of the postdoctoral project is to identify the activity and distribution of this process in the marine environment. The project has a strong field work component and involves rate measurements using stable isotopes, and tracking of relevant intermediates by microsensor and optode measurements.

Required qualifications: 
Applicants need to have a PhD and a background in environmental microbiology, biogeochemistry, or related fields demonstrated by scientific publications. Working experience with stable isotope labelling techniques or with microsensor and optode measurements is of advantage. Proficiency in spoken and written English is mandatory. 

The expected starting date is 1 April 2021 or as soon as possible thereafter.

Application deadline: 28 February 2021.

Please see the full call, including how to apply, on www.sdu.dk.
