PhD Scholarship in Trait-based Modelling of Microbial Life in the Ocean

Danmarks Tekniske Universitet (DTU)



Frist 31. marts 2021

Centre for Ocean Life (

www.OceanLifeCentre.dk) offers a 3-year PhD fellowships in trait-based modelling of microbial life in the ocean. The fellow will be employed at DTU Aqua (The National Institute for Aquatic Resources, Technical University of Denmark).

Responsibilities and qualifications

We expect the PhD candidate to develop, implement and analyse models of microbial life in the ocean based on the “Nutrient-Unicellular-Multicellular” model framework. The overall aim is to scale from traits of individual organisms to the function of the ecosystem on a global scale.

The application should contain a motivation for why you want to work in the Centre for Ocean Life. The application may include a description of your own project ideas in accord with the goal of the Centre, perhaps inspired by the current running projects outlined on our home pages (

www.OceanLifeCentre.dk/projects

,

www.oceanlifecentre.dk/background

and

www.mecano-plankton.dk

).

The final PhD project will be developed in collaboration with the supervisors in the Centre.

The PhD candidate(s) will become part of the vibrant, cross-disciplinary, and international research environment at the Centre for Ocean Life that is a Villum Kann Rasmussen Centre of Excellence. The centre is a collaborative effort to develop a fundamental understanding and predictive capability of marine ecosystems through the use of trait-based approaches. We currently have a group of about 20 young scientists associated the Centre (PhD and Postdocs). They are working on various aspects of marine life using diverse approaches (observational, experimental, theoretical) while collaborating through weekly science meetings, annual science retreats, numerous working groups, and collaborative projects. Their backgrounds are as diverse as are those of the PIs of the Centre, from physics and mathematics to biology and chemistry, and we spend considerable effort developing cross-disciplinary communication and projects since we believe that the potential for discovery and progress may be achieved by confronting the different disciplines.

We are looking for physicists/mathematicians/engineers with a keen interest in marine ecology, or ecologists with documented quantitative skills.

Candidates should hold a two-year master’s degree (120 ECTS point) in physics, biology, mathematics, engineering, or a similar degree with an academic level equivalent to a two-year master's degree.

Approval and enrolment

PhD scholarships are subject to academic approval, and the candidate will be enrolled in one of the general degree programmes of DTU.

For information about the general requirements for enrolment and the general planning of the PhD studies, please see the

DTU PhD Guide

Salary and appointment terms
The appointment will be based on the collective agreement with the Danish Confederation of Professional Associations. The allowance will be agreed upon with the relevant union. The period of employment is 3 years.
