Dear colleagues,

Currently, we are looking for 1 PhD candidate to fill below position at 
ZMT Bremen:

The Leibniz Center for Tropical Marine Ecology (ZMT) GmbH in Bremen is a 
member of the Leibniz Association, which is supported by the German 
Federal and State Governments. Through its research, Leibniz-ZMT GmbH 
contributes to developing science-based strategies for sustainable use 
of tropical coastal systems (www.zmt-bremen.de).

The ZMT has a vacancy for a Ph.D. student to start in April/May 2012 
within the framework of the project Science and Protection for the 
Indonesian Coastal Environment (SPICE III) funded by the German Ministry 
of Science and Education (BMBF). Main goal of the project is to 
understand ecological functioning of coral reefs in response to 
environmental change through a series of interconnected ecological and 
biogeochemical studies at different selected locations in the Spermonde 
Archipelago and Savu Sea. These studies will importantly identify the 
main environmental drivers controlling coral reef ecosystem functioning, 
assess processes leading to coral-algal phase shifts, and resolve local 
coral reef resilience and recovery patterns.The appointment is for a 
three-year period. Salary will be according to the German TV-L 13 for a 
half-time position.


Applicants should hold a Master or Diploma degree in marine biology, 
ecology, geobiology or related fields and should ideally have experience 
with coral reef ecology and physiology. They should also fluently speak 
English and possess good scientific writing skills. A SCUBA diving 
license is an additional asset. The job requires a long term stay in 
Indonesia and so prior experience working abroad in difficult field 
conditions is preferred.


To apply, please send a motivation letter, a complete CV with list of 
publications and skills, and names with email addresses and phone 
numbers of two referees in a single pdf-file to the address below. Only 
short-listed candidates will be notified.

Closing Date:

February 29, 2012 or until a qualified candidate is identified. The 
Leibniz-ZMT GmbH is an equal opportunity employer. Disabled persons with 
comparable qualification receive preferential status.
