Climate change-induced extreme events such as heat spells, heavy rainfall and flood events will continue to increase in the future. The Helmholtz Center for Environmental Research – UFZ is investigating the expected massive impacts on ecosystems and the consequential economic costs within Germany and Europe. The necessary prerequisites are high-resolution environmental system models running on high-performance computers and high-resolution in-situ and satellite remote sensing observation data sets. The UFZ operates observatories and novel observation systems for this purpose (e.g. TERENO or MOSES), infrastructure platforms (e.g. CITEpro), and modeling platforms (e.g. mHM or OGS). This results in growing challenges for dealing with large volumes of high quality data. Organizing the long-term availability of this research data and interfacing with research data platforms (e.g. NFDI or EOSC) requires an advanced research data management through the use of structured techniques in the collection, transmission, curation, integration, processing, and persistent storage of large amounts of data.
To strengthen research data management, we are looking for 4 employees (m / w / d) at the earliest possible date.

Microorganisms have an important role in forest ecosystems and soil bacteria represent the most abundant group. They steer element turnover in soils, which impacts substrate distribution, nutrient cycling, nutrient availability, and soil aggregate stability. Currently, the relations between soil bacteria and their environmental impacts are not fully understood. Within the „SoilForEurope“ project, funded by BiodivERsA, we are interested to understand, how soil bacteria operate in different forests systems and if there are differences in their occurrences in monocultures compared to multispecies forest sites.
The Department Soil Ecology in Halle (Saale) is looking for a motivated student for a master thesis in this important and interesting area with the central question "What is the role of bacterial communities in keeping forest ecosystems functional?"

Chlorinated paraffins (CPs) are emerging environmental contaminants with a high bioaccumulation potential. Monitoring studies for CPs are relatively scarce, due to large challenges in the analysis of CPs. For East Africa data on environmental occurrence are missing completely. The current project will investigate the bioaccumulation of CPs in fish from Lake Victoria, Uganda, and the associated human exposure to CPs via consumption of fish.
