A post-doctoral position in microbial ecology of extreme environments is available in the group of Jocelyne DiRuggiero at the Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, MD, USA
The PhD candidate will work both in the groups "Microbial Ecology" and “Trace gas chemistry”, and collaborate with other team members of the project EVAR (Effects of variability in physical forcing on carbon and oxygen budgets). The major task will be to investigate regulating mechanisms of trace gas production (N2O, CH4) in the Benguela upwelling system (Namibia) and to identify responsible microorganisms. In the frame of this project two expeditions with the research vessel Meteor of several weeks and accompanying laboratory studies with microbial communities at IOW are planned. The successful applicant will work closely together with two PostDocs addressing microbial community analysis and trace gas transport and flux."

The Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW) is looking for a Director of the Netherlands Institute of Ecology with extensive expertise in high quality ecological research, a broad overall view of science and excellent management qualities. The Netherlands Institute of Ecology (NIOO-KNAW) is a top research institute of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW). NIOO-KNAW focuses on fundamental and strategic research on individual organisms, populations, communities, and ecosystems. The mission is to carry out excellent research in ecology. In 2018, NIOO has received the rate “excellent” in a peer review by an international review committee.
We are seeking for our research group Microbial Biogeochemistry of the Research Area Landscape Functioning at ZALF a part time position (65%) for 36 months at our location in Müncheberg as a Doctoral Researcher or Scientist (36 months) (M/W/D)
The announced position is part of the project NMicro that deals with the N-converting rhizosphere microbiome of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) in agricultural ecosystems. It will be central to the project to resolve how wheat shape key functions of the microbial nitrogen conversion, also with focus on spatial distribution patterns. Key methods will be metagenomics, and –transcriptomics, ArcGIS, and cultivation and characterization of N-converting microorganisms. The retrieved microbiome data should be up scaled by combination with remote sensing data.

The world’s increasing demand for food generates a powerful economic imperative for innovation in food production technology. Our novel system was discovered through our previous research in New Zealand, and has the potential to create several new products for the global food supply chain.
Our research revealed that (a) symbiotic microbes in the hindgut of NZ seaweed-eating fishes convert seaweed and atmospheric nitrogen into compounds of nutritional value to fish, (b) these hindgut microbes provide an important source of dietary protein to the fish, and (c) these novel organisms can be grown in culture. Culturing these microbial communities to bioconvert abundant and sustainable seaweeds would thus address four global problems: (a) the economic and environmental costs of feeding capture fish to cultured fish, (b) the unsuitability of many terrestrial protein sources for aquaculture feeds due to the lack of critical nutrients and the presence of compounds inhibitory to digestion, (c) current roadblocks to using abundant seaweed biomass to produce aquaculture feeds, and (d) the growing demand for sustainable agricultural fertiliser. This is a completely novel idea on an international level, as we have only just discovered and begun to understand the microbial and physiological processes in NZ fish underpinning it.
Over the next five years our MBIE funded programme develops and broadens this research into a number of economic opportunities for NZ and beyond. These will be accomplished by developing the culture technology and methodology to maximize the production of desired fermentation end products; single cell protein for animal and aquaculture feeds, organic fertilisers that will decrease the need for more harmful forms currently used and as a food source for black soldier fly larvae, which have growing global importance as feed components for aquaculture and poultry.
