Jobs and PhD positions


Closing date for applications:  • Location: Leipzig Postdoctoral Position (f/m/x)
As part of the EU project PrecisionTox, scientists address key challenges to predict human toxicity from small model organisms and cellular assays – in order to replace and avoid animal tests for human toxicity assessment. Within this project UFZ is currently offering 1 Postdoctoral and 2 PhD positions. The positions will be dedicated to the following subjects:

Reuse of treated wastewater for irrigation is increasing also in Germany. Which organic trace pollutants are problematic and need to be removed?
Closing date for applications:  • Location: Leipzig PhD Position (m/f/x)
We are looking for a highly motivated candidate with a passion for microbiology and its application in a technical context. Our research in the Catalytic Biofilms group at the Department of Solar Materials of the UFZ focuses on developing microbial consortia growing as surface attached communities for biological hydrogen production. In PROMICON, we aim to develop a hydrogen producing multi-species biofilm based on phototrophic microorganisms to be operated in an outdoor reactor system. Understanding of technical ecology, basics in biotechnology and bioengineering will be beneficial to reach this aim. Good team spirit and motivation to work in an international team is required, as there will be close collaborations with the other projects in the consortium.

We are looking for a highly self-motivated candidate with a strong interest in single cell analysis and microbial ecology. Our research in the Flow Cytometry group at the Dept of Environmental Microbiology at UFZ focuses on developing schemes to optimize biotechnological processes based on individual microbial cell states and functions. In PROMICON, we aim to move to near-automated analysis of natural or artificial microbial consortia via high-throughput and high-dimensional cytometric data. Bioinformatics evaluation tools must be routinely applied and may require further development. Open interest in and application of sequencing technologies and other omics methods is required. Population ecology stratagems and models will be the backbone of data interpretation and should be actively used for process control and optimization.
Closing date for applications:  • Location: Leipzig PhD Position (m/f/x)
We are seeking an enthusiastic person to fill a PhD position (65% TVöD 13, 3 years). The aim of PROMICON is to learn from nature how microbiomes function through latest and novel methods in order to steer their growth towards production of biopolymers, energy carriers, drop-in feedstocks and antimicrobial molecules.
Closing date for applications:  • Location: Leipzig Masterthesis (f/m/x)
We are offering a master project in the Department Isotope Biogeochemistry starting end of March 2021. Topic: Isotope analysis of microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC)
