Join the lab!

Interested students are welcome to participate in the research conducted in our lab throughout the year. Open PhD and Postdoc positions will be announced at this page. We offer different topics for bachelor and master theses and also welcome your ideas and suggestions for other thesis topics. Please find a selection of topics listed or request further topics by contacting Prof. Nico Eisenhauer.


Non-scientific personnel

Technical employee

In the framework of the DFG-funded research group Beta-FOR we are looking for a technicial employee to support the field and laboratory work in the project “Soil biodiversity and functioning”. For this project, several forest sections in five forests in Germany (Hunsrück, Saarland, Lüneburg, Bavarian Forest, Sailershausen) were influenced  by  silvicultural  measures  in  such  a  way  that  both  light  input  and  the  presence  of  different deadwood scenarios (e.g. crown, standing and lying deadwood) were increased in order to increase structural complexity at the landscape level. In this context, the Experimental Interaction Ecology group at iDiv is investigating the consequences for soil organisms (microorganisms and nematodes), as well as for various soil functions (microbial respiration, biomass, aggregate stability, etc.) and soil variables (C, N, pH, texture,water-holding capacity).

If you like to combine field and lab work, have a drive to work independently, conduct several different methods related to soil, and work in an international team, consider to apply for this position.

More information about the position can be found here (in English) and here (in German).

Application deadline is June 1st, 2022.
