The Plant Interactions Ecophysiology Group (PD Dr. Judy Simon) at the Department of Biology offers a PhD position within the joined project “Adaptation strategies of beech forests to changing environmental conditions at different manage-ment intensities”. Climate change places new challenges on forest ecosystems by affecting tree growth, and thus fitness and productivity. Hence, understanding the processes and underlying mechanisms and their responses to environmental change will aid to develop strategies for sustainable forest ecosystems. In our project, we will study the influence of management and resource availability on tree nutrition and chemical defence over the growing season.
Questions can be directed to PD Dr. Judy Simon via e-mail: email@example.com. We look forward to receiving your application as a single pdf including CV, names and contact details of at least two references, and a max. 1-page cover letter outlining your motivation for the position and research interests until 31.01.2020 via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
