The Cluster of Excellence Balance of the Microverse of the Friedrich Schiller University Jena combines expertise in life, material, optical and computational sciences to elevate microbiome studies from descriptive to hypothesis-driven and functional analyses. Our core mission is to elucidate fundamental principles of the interactions and functions in microbial communities in diverse habitats ranging from oceans and ground water to plant and human hosts.
We are regularly publishing doctoral and postdoctoral researcher positions here.

The Cluster of Excellence Balance of the Microverse invites applications for

1 junior group leader to head a research group on Causal Inference

The Cluster of Excellence Balance of the Microverse of the Friedrich Schiller University Jena combines expertise in life, material, optical and computational sciences to elevate microbiome studies from descriptive to hypothesis-driven and functional analyses. Our core mission is to elucidate fundamental principles of the interactions and functions in microbial communities in diverse habitats ranging from oceans and ground water to plant and human hosts.

The concerted efforts in the Cluster generate a diversity of data from microbial consortia in various habitats. Within the Cluster of Excellence, a junior research group will be established focusing on the development of methods and tools for the identification of cause-effect relations.

Applications in English should comprise a cover letter, detailed curriculum vitae, copies of academic certificates, research agenda, a list of publications with selected reprints, a list of successful grant applications and a description of teaching experience. Please submit your application as a single PDF document via email attachment to microverse@uni-jena.de.

Application deadline: 10th January 2020

The Cluster of Excellence is also offering

1 postdoctoral position

In our Cluster of Excellence we aim to identify the shared characteristics of disturbed or polluted ecosystems as well as infectious diseases on the microbiome level, and develop strategies for their remediation by targeted interventions. Our full spectrum of expertise in the physical and life sciences will be leveraged to address these important issues in natural habitats as well as synthetic arenas in a collaborative manner.

Application deadline: 12th January 2020

Applications for these positions are exclusively accepted via the JSMC Online Application Portal:
