PhD students and postdocs positions

PhD students and postdocs positions on new applications of NMR in environmental sciences

Short description of projects:
Project1: Use high-resolution NMR to measure intramolecular variation of the heavy hydrogen isotope deuterium in historical plant samples, to link past climate with physiological changes, and to define plant-climate interactions relevant for future plant productivity.
Project2: Apply quantitative 13C NMR to primary metabolites and to tree rings, to establish links between intramolecular 13C variation and partitioning of metabolites in plants.
Project3: NMR Characterization of Soil Phosphorus and Carbon Forms during Long Term Succession
We look for highly creative students seeking a career in interdisciplinary research at the interface between chemistry, biology and earth sciences. Applicants should have a university education in chemistry, biochemistry, or equivalent. Experience in NMR, stable isotopes or plant physiology is of advantage.
For project details and applications (including cover letter describing your motivation for this position, CV including a list of university courses with grades, a copy of your graduate work, and names and addresses of two persons willing to act as references), please contact Prof. Jürgen Schleucher,
