Within an application-oriented third-party fundeded project in collaboration with the University of Tübingen a new technology platform for the combined microbial and electrochemical synthesis of fuels/ fuel additives shall be established. Based on the expertise of the research group (https://www.ufz.de/index.php?en=38424) and particularly based on the prework by Urban et al. (Energy Environ. Sci. 10 (10), 2231 - 2244) electroorganic synthesis in aqueous solutions will be elucidated, improved and engineered up to the liter-scale.
We invite socio-environmental systems scientists to apply for a fully funded 3-month research stay at the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research, starting no earlier than April 1 and ending no later than October 31, 2019.
We are looking for a highly motivated post-doctoral researcher to join us at the department of Computational HydroSystems (CHS) at the UFZ (Leipzig, Germany) to work on the DFG-funded project “XEROS: eXtreme EuRopean drOughtS: Multimodel synthesis of past, present and future events”. XEROS is a part of a bilateral German-Czech project in collaboration with the Czech University of Life Sciences in Prague - CULS.
Due to the high diversity of materials, the assessment of each individual variant of innovative materials with regard to a possible environmental hazard in the context of regulatory requirements is impracticable. Therefore, specific properties of innovative materials that are suitable for predicting ecotoxicity should be investigated. These properties are then to be integrated into a grouping concept regarding the environmental risk of innovative materials.
The Department Isotope Biogeochemistry of the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research - UFZ offers a Master thesis on 'The ecological effects of temperature management (heat storage) on natural microbial communities of a shallow aquifer' (starting at the 01.03. 2019 or later)
The Department of Isotope Biogeochemistry at the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research GmbH - UFZ is offering the following internship/bachelor/master thesis: Degradation of hexachlorocyclohexanes during uptake in plant
The study will take 3 months up to 6 month depending on the specific topic.
