Description In the Group Biodiversity and Evolution of Plants of the
Institute of Biology and Environmental Sciences of the Faculty of Mathematics
and Natural Sciences of the Carl von Ossietzky University there is a vacancy
to be filled by 01.05.2022
for the position of a PhD student (m/f/d) (E 13 TV-L - 67%)
limited for three years with the possibility to do a doctorate.
The position is part of the DFG research group DynaCom
(https: // uol.de/en/icbm/collaborative-projects/dynacom). DynaCom deals with
questions of dynamic processes of biodiversity changes in the Wadden Sea by
means of theoretical and empirical processes. So, you will be part of a group
of enthusiastic young scientists working together on a larger project. This
includes regular meetings, project reports and support in all aspects by a
group of professors, postdocs and fellow PhD students.
The specific project is concerned with changes in fungus-plant interactions
under salt and heat stress of glasswort (Salicornia europaea) in the field
and in the greenhouse. For this purpose, metatranscriptomic methods will be
used to track changes at the gene level. Active collaboration with other
subprojects, especially in field work, is an important part of the project.
Therefore, besides high throughput sequencing, analysis of transcriptomic data
and performing greenhouse experiments, there is the possibility to learn other
methods, such as plant anatomy and flow cytometry.
In the field of plant systematics, the group conducts research on questions of
intraspecific differentiation and diversification of species, especially on
questions of hybridization and polyploidy. Study organisms are primarily
flowering plants. See also https:// www. plant-evol.uni-oldenburg.de
The following work is to be performed:
- Transcriptomic analyses
- Greenhouse experiments
- Supervision of final theses (bachelor and master).
- Completed scientific university studies (Master/Diploma (Uni)) in
biology or related subjects with a strong fungal and/or plant science
- Experience in the analysis of high-throughput sequencing methods.
- Scientific precision, motivation and enthusiasm
- Organizational skills
- Good command of written and spoken English
The University offers your employees:
- Payment according to the collective agreement (TVL) incl. annual special
- Graduate school OLTECH (https: // uol.de/oltech) mit many different offers
