Friedrich Schiller University is a traditional university with a strong research profile rooted in the heart of Germany. As a university covering all disciplines, it offers a wide range of subjects. Its research is focused on the areas Light—Life—Liberty. It is closely networked with non-research institutions, research companies and renowned cultural institutions. With around 18,000 students and more than 8,600 employees, the university plays a major role in shaping Jena’s character as a cosmopolitan and future-oriented city.
At the Institute of Geosciences / Chair of Applied Geology is to the 15 of March 2023 or at the earliest possible date one position to fill as
in part-time (50% / 20 weekly hours) limited until 31 October 2025
in the BMBF joint project TRAVARIS “Transfer of long lived radionuclides from the vadose zone into the rhizosphere and their uptake into plants considering microbiological processes”.
The aim of our subproject in a network of institutes operating throughout Germany is the investigation and modeling of the behavior of long-lived radionuclides (RN) in the complex interaction between soil and plant. Special focus is on the investigation of the distribution of radionuclides between dissolved and colloidal phases as well as stationary solid phases in the pedo- and rhizosphere and the transport into plant compartments. Pore waters from small- and mesoscale column experiments will be characterized by hydrogeochemical (IC, ICP-MS/OES, LC-OCD-OND) and colloidal analysis (NTA, EF-AF4, sp-ICP-MS) as well as imaging techniques (AFM, SEM) and the colloidal transport will be transferred into a numerical transport model (Hydrus 2D/3D).
The advertised position is limited until 31 October 2025 with a part-time employment of 50% (20 hours per week).
The Friedrich Schiller University Jena aims to increase the proportion of women in underrepresented research fields and we therefore explicitly encourage women to apply.
Severely disabled persons will be given preferential consideration in the event of equal suitability, ability and professional qualification.
