M.Sc. thesis in SP3 on nutrient use efficiency in mixed stands, start in SoSe 2022

MycorrhizaThe belowground biological processes that influence soil solution chemistry in Douglas fir stands will be investigated in the thesis project. In a greenhouse experiment, we will test if Douglas fir roots foster particular nitrogen accumulation patterns in the soil and determine which group of associated soil organisms is responsible; fungi and/or microbes. The student will use methods in genetics to detect community changes of these groups of organisms and microscopy techniques to determine the hyphal productivity and form.
The thesis work will start in March/April 2023, with field/lab work taking ca 2 months and be completed by autumn 2023. Contact: Klara Mrak or Michela Audisio. More information can be found here.

Science for Ukraine - Student helper positions for Forestry/Ecology students

Flagge_kleinWe wish to support Ukrainian Master/Bachelor students in the broad field of forestry/ecology whose lives and studies were disrupted by the recent invasion and ongoing war in the country. If you are considering leaving Ukraine or have already done so, wish to pursue your field of study and find a safe place to stay, we are glad to hear from you and welcome you in Göttingen. More information can be found here.

Cooperation offers - associated PhD students

Ideas for own projects within the RTG 2300 framework are always welcome. In case of interest please contact the scientific coordinator Serena Müller.

Apart from the regular PhD positions offered every 3 year, (prospective) PhD students working on related topics are invited to apply as associate doctoral researchers of the RTG 2300. Associated members will not be employed in the RTG, but they can benefit from the facilities and funds (e.g. travel and some research funds) of EnriCo. The acceptance and supervision of associate members is subject to the same criteria and requirements as for doctoral researchers employed by the RTG.

There are numerous options for external funding. Especially foreign (non-German) nationalities are encouraged to check the DAAD website for scholarships and funding.

Bachelor and Master Theses in the context of the RTG

To assist our PhD students with their fieldwork or analysis, to conduct small own research projects in the context of the RTG is a great opportunity to get insights into a bigger research project and to make extensive experiences with field and laboratory work, data acquisition and management, programming and data analysis, and complation of papers and reports in a professional setting. These involvment with scientific work is complemented by an invitation to attend the RTG's guest lecture series and to participate in other qualification events.

If you are interested to write your Bachelor or Master Thesis on a topic related to the RTG, please contact one of our principal investigators or talk to one of our current PhD students or our postdoctoral researcher first.
