PostDoc in Stable Isotope Physiology and Global Change Ecology
The key objective of the advertised position is to design experiments that will allow to identify the metabolic processes in plants that are reflected in the δ2H values of different plant compounds. This information will then be applied to interpret δ2H time series obtained from herbarium specimen and tree ring chronosequences to identify long-term metabolic changes in plants as a response to environmental changes during the past century.
We are looking for a dynamic, reliable and motivated candidate with a PhD in biology, environmental sciences or related disciplines. Strong interest in process-oriented research in plant physiology, the ability to work analytically with large datasets and experience with process-based modelling are beneficial. Teamwork within the group and project partners requires spoken and written English language skills.
We offer you
We offer a three-year position in an international and interdisciplinary research environment at the University of Basel. The position will initially be for one year with the option of a two-year extension, depending on the performance of the candidate. Salary and social benefits are provided according to University of Basel rules.
