Jobs and PhD positions


Closing date for applications:  • Location: Leipzig Post Doc (f/m/d): Effects of plastics and related chemicals on microbial ecosystem biodiversity, functions and services
Since the 1950’s the increasing production of plastics resulted in a progressive accumulation of plastic litter in the oceans with manifold consequences for marine life. Plastics impact ecosystems as a new habitat for colonization (“the plastisphere”), and weathering leads to fragmentation towards micro- and nano-sized particles as well as leaching of chemicals, including harmful additives (e.g., plasticizers, metals). Such particles and plastic-associated chemicals have frequently been highlighted as (eco)toxicologically important pollutants, but have not been holistically addressed. Our multidisciplinary consortium will jointly characterize these pollutants, identify harmful chemicals and investigate their synergistic impacts on microbially mediated ecosystem functions and human health.
Embedded in the consortium the successful candidate will address:
