Beschreibung: The research group of Environmental Biotechnology at the Center for Applied Geosciences at the University of Tübingen is looking for an excellent PhD candidate to support our international, interdisciplinary, and dynamic team of environmental/biological engineers, electrochemists, microbiologists, biotechnologists, and molecular biologists.

The research in the Environmental Biotechnology Group is focused around the utilization of open, mixed, and pure microbial cultures in engineered systems, for example, for biotechnological production platforms. In addition, the group studies extracellular electron transfer in soils and sediments between microbes and redox-active compounds such as biochar and minerals. We apply methods from bioreactor design and operation (lab- and pilot-scale), genetic engineering, electrochemistry, and systems biology to next generation sequencing, proteomics, and sequence analysis.

We are offering a PhD position for a motivated and driven student with an interest in microbial electrochemistry. This position provides an opportunity for the candidate to be creative and innovative, and to work on a challenging and multidisciplinary topic. The ideal candidate should have a solid background in electrochemistry, for example, by having worked on an electrochemistry-related MSc project or via undergraduate courses. The applicant would further widen his/her electrochemical toolset and apply it to microbial systems in laboratory-scale microcosms and bioelectrochemical systems. Requirements include the ability to do work independently and in a team, excellent management and communication skills, and a high motivation. Very good computer and language skills (English) are necessary. The candidates will have the opportunity to present his/her results in international journals and conferences.

The starting date is in January 2019, but can be negotiated. The employment will be arranged by the administration of the University of Tübingen (salary TVL E13, 75%, including health insurance, 3 years). Disabled persons will be preferred in case of equal qualification.

Applications (in English) including CV, motivation letter, overview of techniques and methods used in the past, transcripts and diplomas, and contact address of three referees should be sent by email to: a=tianran.sun and b=uni-tuebingen.de with a@b.

Prof. Dr. Largus (Lars) T. Angenent, Environmental Biotechnology, Center for Applied Geosciences, University of Tübingen.
