The Department of Biology at the University of Southern Denmark invites applications for an assistant professorship in experimental aquatic biogeochemistry. The position is associated with the project NOVAMOX (Novel Niches of Anaerobic Methane Oxidation and Their Biogeochemical Significance) funded by the European Research Council. The project explores the biogeochemistry and microbial ecology of methane consumption in anoxic freshwater systems and oceanic oxygen minimum zones, environments where such processes to date were largely ignored. The aim is to generate robust estimates of the significance of anaerobic methane oxidation in these overlooked niches, and provide a quantitative mechanistic framework for analysis of the role of these processes in Earth’s biogeochemical cycles.
The research tasks include the development of experimental methods to explore rates and pathways of methane oxidation, and their dynamics, in oxygen-depleted marine waters. Hence, we seek a candidate with expertise in the quantification of dissimilatory microbial process rates in aquatic systems, preferably including the use of stable and/or radioisotopes, and with experience in anaerobic processes. The selected candidate will work closely together with the NOVAMOX team and other colleagues at the Department of Biology and should have an aptitude for fieldwork, including oceanic expeditions. The candidate is expected to develop a strong, independent research profile.
The position is offered for three years with possibility for extension. Applications will be assessed by an expert assessment committee. Each applicant will be informed about the assessment. As part of the overall assessment of the applicant’s qualifications, an interview may be applied.
Further information about the position is available from Professor Bo Thamdrup, tel. (+45) 6011 2477; e-mail: email@example.com .
This position is subject to the entry into force of grant agreement no 695599 by and between the European Research Council Executive Agency (ERCEA) and the University of Southern Denmark and thereby funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme.
Application, salary etc.
Appointment to the position will be in accordance with the salary agreement between the Ministry of Finance and the Danish Confederation of Professional Associations. Applications will be assessed by an expert committee. Applicants will be informed of their assessment by the university.
The application must include the following:
• A curriculum vitae
• A full list of publications
• Copies of all publications on which the applicant wishes to be evaluated
• A brief survey of the applicant's most important research results and research plans for the next three years.
Incomplete applications and applications received after the deadline will neither be considered nor evaluated.
Please note that applicants are expected to have completed their PhD.
The University encourages all interested persons to apply, regardless of age, gender, religious affiliation, or ethnic background.
Applications must be submitted electronically using the link below. Attached files must be in Adobe PDF or Word format. Each box can only contain a single file of max. 10 Mb. We strongly recommend that you read How to apply before you apply.
Since not all members of the appointment committee are Danish-speaking, it is recommended that your application is submitted in English.
