PhD Positions at the International Max Planck Research School for Global Biogeochemical Cycles (IMPRS-gBGC)

The IMPRS-gBGC offers a PhD program specializing in global biogeochemistry and related Earth System sciences. The call for applications is now open.

In cooperation with the Friedrich Schiller University Jena, the Max Planck Institute for Biogeochemistry houses a unique and flexible research program that grants German and foreign students a broad selection of learning opportunities while still maintaining a research focus.

The overall research and teaching focuses on:
‣ Improved understanding of biogeochemical processes with an emphasis on terrestrial ecosystems
‣ Development of observational techniques to monitor and assess biogeochemical feedbacks in the earth system
‣ Theory and model development for improving the representation of biogeochemical processes in comprehensive earth
system models
