Helmholtz – Young investigator groups

closing date 30th March 2012

The GEOMAR | Helmholtz-Centre for Ocean Research Kiel is a German “foundation under public law”, financed by both the Federal Republic of Germany and the State Schleswig-Holstein. GEOMAR is one of the leading international organisations in the field of marine sciences, with a current annual budget of about € 60 million and about 750 employees.

GEOMAR is calling for applications to establish Helmholtz – Young Investigator Groups in the following research area:

1. Molecular Microbiology
    Research Division 2 – Marine Biogeochemistry. Contact: Prof. Ulf Riebesell

The candidate shall apply innovative molecular tools ((meta)transcriptomics, proteomics) to investigate microbial responses to ocean change (e.g. ocean warming, acidification, deoxygenation) in the context of marine biogeochemistry (carbon, nitrogen, phosphorus cycling). He/She should be prepared to develop novel strategies to bridge the gap between gene expression and metabolic activity of marine microbes, and present ideas on how molecular approaches can be used to help predicting ecosystem responses. We particularly welcome proposals addressing one of the following topics: expression of functional genes for the production or decomposition of organic matter, development of targeted molecular probes for genes of metabolic function, or interactions between microbial metabolic diversity and environmental variability.
