Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg 15.08.2018

Post- Doctoral Researcher and PhD

15 August 2018: Application deadline

The Albert-Ludwigs-University Freiburg is inviting applications for a experienced scientist (E13, 100%) and a PhD (E13, 65%) with interests in VOCs, plant ecophysiological processes and plant-atmosphere exchange, to study the ecophysiological mechanisms controlling VOC emissions and carbon metabolism in plants. Within the ERC-consolidator-project VOCO2, we use state-of-the-art PTR-TOF techniques coupled to stable isotope laser spectroscopy and 13C label techniques to trace VOC emissions and carbon allocation from the metabolic to the plant and ecosystem scale. In autumn 2019, a large scale experiment will be conducted in the Biosphere II in Arizona, US. The position will be 2 year + 1 year upon extension of the project and starts at 01.10.2018

Post-doc candidates should be experienced in PTR-TOF or related techniques both regarding instrument operation and data treatment, preferentially with a sound background in biochemistry/secondary plant metabolism or atmospheric VOC. Excellent communicational skills (in English), conference presentations and publication skills are requested. The Post-doc will be responsible for running and maintaining the PTR-TOF. Tasks will comprise the installation and conduction of experiments together with the PhD and other team members, data evaluation, preparation of publications and participation in international conferences and scientific meetings.
