The Centre of Microbiology and Environmental Systems Science conducts internationally leading research in the field of environmental systems science. The Department of Environmental Geosciences is looking for a University assistant (post doc) with outstanding expertise in the emerging field of pyrogenic carbon materials in the environment to support the Department’s research efforts. Research interests in this area could include the elucidation of pyrogenic carbon stability and fate in the environment, or effects of these materials on contaminant dynamics and changes in natural organic matter cycling and may include natural sources such as wildfires or anthropogenic sources such as biochar.

Active participation in research, teaching and Administration is expected. This involves:
o Developing and strengthening an independent research profile
o Involvement in research projects / research studies
o International publications and presentations
o Responsibility for project applications and the acquisition of third-party funding
o Teaching as defined by the collective agreement
o Supervision of students Active participation in research, teaching and Administration is expected. This involves:
