PhD position in Physiological Plant Ecology (Technical University of Munich)

Application deadline: January 06, 2019

The Chair for Ecophysiology of Plants, Technical University of Munich (TUM), offers a position as a

PhD student in Physiological Ecology of Plants (E13/65%)

from 15.02.2019 (or later) for a period of three years.

The project/task

The project is funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) and aims at investigating dynamics of trees upon drought recovery with focus on carbon allocation, water relations and species interactions. The study is largely performed at the Forest field station "Kranzberg Forest", where a canopy crane allows for in situ studies on adult beech and spruce in a mixed forest. The project is part of an interdisciplinary forest drought experiment (http://kroof.wzw.tum.de) and includes process analysis of trees' resource allocation by means of stable isotopes (2H, 13C, 18O) in an up-to-date growth chamber environment (http://www.tummesa.de).
