Dear Colleagues,
we would appreciate if you could circulate the announcement below  

Workshop "Frontiers in Geobiology" announcement:

Within the framework of the DFG Research Unit FOR571 "Geobiology" we  
invite applications to attend the workshop "Frontiers in Geobiology"  
on 13/14 October 2007 hosted by the Department of Geobiology at the  
Geoscience Center of the Georg-August-Universität in Göttingen  

This workshop intends to bring together early career researchers from  
the fields of geobiology, geomicrobiology, animal and plant  
paleobiology, biogeochemistry, molecular phylogenetics,  
phylogenomics, evolutionary developmental biology, et al., to  
indentify and discuss emerging issues in Geobiology, i.e. research at  
the interface between geo-and biosciences.

Selection of participants will be competetive, but all travel costs,  
including accomodation and food, will be covered according to German  

Participation is limited to early career researchers, preference will  
be given to applications from Post-Docs within about 2-4 years after  
receiving their Ph.D.

Two-page applications (maximum) should be submitted by email (PDF  
only) to gert.woerheide at geo.uni-goettingen.de until 15. September 2007.
The subject line of the email is required to include the keywords  
"Workshop Frontiers in Geobiology" and the email body should include  
a brief cover letter of motivation.

Please comply with the following format for your two-page PDF  
1) Short CV including a maximum of 5 best career publications (one page)
2) Statement of past and present achievements; Perspective for future  
In the latter part you should identify emerging issues in  
geobiological research and how you would contribute methodologically  
and intellectually to address these consequential issues of broad  
Applications that do not follow the above guidelines will not be  

You will be notified by 20. September 2007 about acceptance, and if  
accepted, you are expected to present your research and concepts

The University of Göttingen has a strong commitment to the principles  
of equal opportunity policies and practices and, in that spirit, we  
strongly invite women to apply. Equally qualified handicapped  
applicants will be given preference.

We look forward to your participation
