Stable Isotope Physiology PhD Student Position @ Basel University Switzerland

Stable Isotope Physiology PhD Student Position @ Basel University Switzerland: The University of Basel (German: Universität Basel) is located in Basel, Switzerland. Founded on 4 April 1460, it is Switzerland’s oldest university and is counted among the leading institutions of the country.

The associated University Library of Basel is the largest and among the most important libraries in the whole of the country. The university hosts the faculties of theology, law, medicine, humanities and social sciences, science, psychology, and business and economics, as well as numerous cross-disciplinary subjects and institutes, such as the Biozentrum for biomedical research and the Institute for European Global Studies. In 2016, the University boasted 12,852 students and 377 professors. International students accounted for 25 percent of the student body. Stable Isotope Physiology PhD Student Position @ Basel University Switzerland

PhD student in Stable Isotope Physiology

The Sustainable Land Use Group at the University of Basel (Prof. Kahmen) seeks a PhD student in Stable Isotope Physiology. It will be within the ERC project HYDROCARB, which addresses the potential of stable hydrogen isotope ratios (δ2H values) in plant compounds as new proxy for the carbon metabolism in plants. Research suggests that exciting and previously unknown opportunities exist to exploit δ2H values in plant compounds for information on the carbohydrate metabolism of plants. Such an application of δ2H values would be highly relevant for a broad range of biological and biogeochemical disciplines.

Your assignments

The goal of HYDROCARB is to perform the experimental work that is now needed to identify the key biochemical and physiological processes that determine the metabolic information that is recorded in the δ2H values of plant organic compounds such as leaf wax lipids, lignin and cellulose. The key objective of the advertised PhD project is to perform experiments with different vascular plant species under controlled environmental conditions to identify the precise biochemical processes with respect to a plants carbohydrate metabolism that shape the δ2H values of different plant compounds.

Your profile

We are looking for a dynamic, reliable and motivated student with M.Sc./Diploma in biology, biochemistry, organic geochemistry or related disciplines. Strong interest in process-oriented research and hands-on experiences with analytical instruments (stable isotope mass spectrometers), biochemistry and analytical chemistry are beneficial. Teamwork within the group and project partners requires spoken and written English language skills.
