Fully funded PhD program in Natural Sciences 642 views

The Max Planck Institute for Biogeochemistry in association with the Friedrich Schiller University is offering a PhD program specializing in global biogeochemistry and related Earth System sciences.

Research areas:
  • Improved understanding of biogeochemical processes with an emphasis on terrestrial ecosystems
  • Development of observational techniques to monitor and assess biogeochemical feedbacks in the earth system
  • Theory and model development for improving the representation of biogeochemical processes in comprehensive earth system models


  • Applications are open to well-motivated and highly-qualified students from all countries.
  • Applicants must hold (or are about to receive) a Master of Science or equivalent degree in natural sciences.
  • Applicant must possess proficiency in English since English is the official language of the program.

Duration: 3 years
