Ph.D. scholarships in soil physics University of Aarhus, Department of Agroecology and Environment, Research Centre Foulum, 8830 Tjele, Denmark


 

 

The scholarships will have their base at Aarhus and Aalborg Universities, within the frame of a major new research project funded by the Danish Research Council for Technology and Production Sciences: “Soil Infrastructure, Interfaces & Translocation Processes in Inner Space” (“Soil-it-is”): The upper few meters of the soil (the vadose zone) sustain our life and society, but we only have an empirical knowledge of how soil behaves. In the “Soil-it-is” project, a group of internationally recognized soil scientists at University of Aarhus (AU) and Aalborg University (AAU), Denmark, join forces with partner universities in the USA, UK and Japan to explore how soil architecture and infrastructure (pore and particle networks) control and are controlled by newly recognized soil-physical phenomena. Our project vision is a holistic understanding of architecture and processes in soil inner space that will provide the basis for solutions to protect groundwater resources, improve clean-up technologies at polluted sites, enhance the health and productivity of cultivated soil, and improve the understanding of the soil vadose zone and its role in climate change. For more information on the project please visit our web-site: http://www.agrsci.dk/soil-it-is/

The project currently has two openings for Ph.D. scholarships with start by February 1, 2008. The scholarships are open to both Danish and international applicants. The subject areas of the two studies are briefly described:

Ph.D. 1: Soil Architecture:Degraded soil architecture reduces soil functionality
Inadequate management of urban and cultivated land violently challenges the self-organized system of biotic and abiotic soil constituents. This creates poor soil quality in terms of reduced productivity and buffering of environmental impact Understanding the controlling mechanisms for soil self-organization at the cluster-, aggregate-, and bulk soil scale will allow us to influence soil architecture in a positive way with respect to soil functionality and health. As an integral part of this, the interactive links between soil architecture and mobility and transport of colloidal particles, water, and gases need to be revealed. The Ph.D. work will be in close cooperation with the SIMBIOS center at University of Abertay Dundee, Scotland. The successful candidate will be employed and enrolled as a Ph.D. student at University of Aarhus, Department of Agroecology and Environment, with work place at Research Centre Foulum.

Ph.D. 2: Water-Solids Interfaces: Water transport in soil is often erratic, causing poor water distribution and accelerated chemical transport
A major reason for this problem is the recognition of interface processes that affect water flow throughout the soil profile. Both surface and sub-critical water repellency due to hydrophobic coatings (films) on soil particles and aggregates occur and both phenomena need to be quantified and incorporated in existing models for water and chemical transport. The Ph.D. work will be in close cooperation with Saitama University, Tokyo, Japan. The successful candidate will be employed and enrolled as a Ph.D. student at Aalborg University, Department of Biotechnology, Chemistry, and Environmental Engineering.

Should a candidate apply for more than one position, then each application must be submitted separately. Closing date for applications is November 1, 2007 at 12:00 noon.

More detailed information and specifics on the application procedure is given on our homepage http://www.agrsci.dk/soil-it-is/ , please note that the requirements vary between Ph.D. 1 and Ph.D. 2.

DOCTORAL RESEARCH FELLOW POSITION University of Oslo


DOCTORAL RESEARCH FELLOW POSITION (PhD-stipendiat) is available at the DEPARTMENT OF MOLECULAR BIOSCIENCES, Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences, University of Oslo
The position is available for a period of three years
Project start date: as soon as possible
The position is associated to the research project Epigenetic gene regulation: The 'conspiracy' between chromatin modification and transcription factors funded by the Functional Genomics Programme (FUGE) of the Research Council of Norway.
The organization of DNA into higher order chromatin structure is crucial for the correct temporal and spatial regulation of gene expression. Post-translational modifications of the histones influence chromatin structure (cfr. the histone code). The aim of this project is to shed light on the role of methylation of histone tails, which is conducted by SET-domain proteins that act as histone methyltransferases in epigenetic regulation of differential gene expression. The project will provide insight in the biochemical and biological function of selected SET-domain proteins, and more specifically link these proteins to target genes that they regulate, either on their own, via DNA methylation, or via protein complexes, including complexes with transcription factors. Arabidopsis thaliana, a plant with exquisite tools for functional genomics and epigenomics, will be used as model organism.
The project is a collaboration between Prof. Reidunn B. Aalen at the Department of Molecular Biosciences, University of Oslo (http://www.imbv.uio.no/gen/db03-ansatte/internet/html/nr000070.html) and Prof. Rein Aasland at the Department of Molecular Biology, University of Bergen (http://www.uib.no/mbi/research/aasland.html). Two post.doc.s, another PhD student and Masters students will be involved in different aspects of this project (biochemistry, molecular genetics, bioinformatics, and structural biology) in addition to the PhD-student of the announced position. We collaborate with several research laboratories in Europe, and the offered the PhD positioned is expected to have research stays in collaborating labs.
The position requires a Master degree or similar within molecular biology, cell biology, biotechnology, or biochemistry. The applicant must be qualified for the doctoral program within these disciplines. Experience with expression of recombinant proteins, protein-protein interactions, methods relevant for investigations of chromatin and or Arabidopsis research, is an advantage, but not a requirement.
The letter of application should include a curriculum vitae with a list of published and unpublished works with a statement summarizing the applicant’s scientific work and interests, certified copies of certificates, and copies of co-authored publications.

PhD Positions in Environmental Science


PhD in Evidences for the Extreme Climate Variability in the High North
Atlantic

A three-year PhD position is available at the Nansen Environmental and
Remote Sensing Center (NERSC) in Bergen, Norway. The successful
candidate will work on research projects PAACSIZ, POCAHONTAS and
NORCLIM, which aim to understand and quantify the main components of the
heat budget over the Nordic Seas, a key region for the temperate climate
of northwestern Europe. The successful candidate will work at NERSC with
extended stays at the Svalbard Science Centre in Spitsbergen, Norway,
and the International Arctic Research Center in Fairbanks, Alaska.

The Nordic Seas are rich in natural offshore resources (i.e., fisheries
and petroleum) and might play an important role for a new Northern Sea
Route from Europe to Asia. All depend critically on the extent and
variability of the sea ice cover, which is strongly linked with the
region's weather and climate. The area around Svalbard, Spitsbergen, is
one of the most accessible in the Arctic, and therefore has unique
observational coverage that allows detailed study of the observed
extreme climate variability in this area.

The PhD project involves retrieval and analysis of the available
observational data from regular, in situ, and irregular field campaign
measurements with special emphasis on the lower atmosphere-upper ocean
data and their correlation to the large-scale circulation of the
ocean-atmosphere system. The analysis aims to quantify the vertical heat
budget in the region and provide a better understanding of causes and
patterns of the observed changes.

The position is open for candidates from all countries. Eligible
candidates must hold a MSc degree or equivalent in meteorology,
oceanography, mathematics, physics or related fields. Strong skills in
atmospheric-ocean dynamics, knowledge of statistical analysis and
experience with observational data processing are advantageous, as is
familiarity with high-latitude data analysis and boundary layer
turbulence and modeling.

PhD student in Plant Biology


PhD student in Plant Biology

The Laboratory of Plant Systematics is part of the Department of
Biology at the K.U.Leuven (Belgium). Our lab has a strong expertise
in plant systematics, including flower morphology and ontogeny,
evodevo, palynology, molecular systematics, wood and seed anatomy.
Our team include three postdocs, 12 PhD students and two lab
technicians.

We now seek a PhD student to build complementary expertise in
bioinformatics and mathematical modelling.

Project: Compilation, informatisation and analysis of morphological
and anatomical data

What is the evolutionary base for morphological differences between
plants? How do these differences emerge during development and how
are they genetically determined? To date it is hard to answer these
questions since we do not have the ICT-tools to integrate develop
mental genetics and comparative morphology/anatomy. We want to tackle
this problem by developing a database with morphological characters
for a large group of flowering plants (basal asterids). This database
will fill three needs: (1) morphological observations could be linked
to mutant phenotypes using a common terminology (ontology); (2)
mathematical models that explain plant development can be tested; (3)
morphological data become accessible for statistic and evolutionary
analyses.
In a first phase, a databank will be designed based on an existing
database for animal-data, but adapted to the specific terminology of
flowering plants. In a second phase, available observations and data
from literature are loaded. In a last phase specific hypotheses and
models can be tested based on the data.

Qualification requirements: Applicants should have a MSc or
equivalent in Biology, Bioinformatics or Bio-engineering with a
strong interest in the natural world and programming.
Funding is provided for 2 years (100%) and the candidate will be
encouraged to enter a doctoral program. The position is open from
January 1st, 2008.

For further information, please visit the lab website at
www.kuleuven.be/bio/sys or contact
Dr. Suzy Huysmans at suzy.huysmans@bio.kuleuven.be
or
Dr. Koen Geuten koen.geuten@bio.kuleuven.be.

The application should contain a CV, documentations of grades and
exams, a list of two referees with e-mail info, and a description of
motivation and experience relevant to the research project. Please
submit your application to Dr. Suzy Huysmans
(suzy.huysmans@bio.kuleuven.be) before October 20st, 2007.
