Positions in DFG-Funded Projects

The following scientific positions from DFG-funded projects are currently open:

8 PhD positions within the RTG „Computational Cognition“

The Research Training Group GRK 2340 „Computational Cognition“, funded by the German Science Foundation (DFG) and hosted at the Institute of Cognitive Science at Osnabrück University, offers 8 PhD positions (E 13 TV-L, 100 % & 65 %) at the interface between Cognitive Science, Machine learning, Computational Neuroscience, and AI. It aims at reintegrating Cognitive Science and Artificial Intelligence. PhD students of the RTG will be educated in both subjects in order to combine the findings of these fields and thus to get a better understanding of human and machine intelligence.

Starting on: 01.10.2021
Application deadline: 19.04.2021

3 Doctoral Researcher Positions and 1 Postdoctoral Researcher Position

The Cluster of Excellence “Balance of the Microverse” of the Friedrich Schiller University Jena, Germany, combines expertise in life, material, optical and computational sciences to elevate microbiome studies from descriptive to hypothesis-driven and functional analyses. Our core mission is to elucidate fundamental principles of the interactions and functions in microbial communities in diverse habitats ranging from oceans and groundwater to plant and human hosts. We aim to identify the shared characteristics of disturbed or polluted ecosystems as well as infectious diseases on the microbiome level, and develop strategies for their remediation by targeted interventions.

Starting on: 01.07.2021
Application deadline: 29.04.2021

Two PhD student positions (65%)

The LIMES institute is inviting applications for two PhD student positions (65%) within Collaborative Research Center 1454 Metaflammation and Cellular Programing for initial period of three years with a possibility of extension. The laboratory of Prof. Mihai Netea at the University of Bonn, Germany, is currently looking for PhD candidates interested in metabolic impact on the immune system and enthusiastic about working on a collaborative project, generating and integrating multidimensional data and understanding human biology at the systemic level.

Starting on: At the earliest convenient date
Application deadline: 30.04.2021

15 PhD and 3 Post-Doc positions within SFB 1432 “Fluctuations and Nonlinearities in Classical and Quantum Matter beyond Equilibrium”

The Collaborative Research Center SFB 1432, funded by the German Science Foundation (DFG) and hosted at the University of Konstanz, offers PhD and postdoctoral researcher positions in experimental physics, theoretical physics, physical chemistry, and mathematics. We strive to investigate fluctuations of systems far from equilibrium or determined by strongly nonlinear interactions at the cross-roads of soft matter, quantum transport, magnetism, nanoelectronics, nanomechanics, and ultrafast phenomena. The positions are located at the University of Konstanz and CRC partners at the TU Munich and the University of Göttingen.

Starting on: At the earliest convenient date
Application deadline: 30.04.2021

12 positions for doctoral researchers (PhD students, all genders welcome)

The German Research Foundation (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft, DFG) has funded the Sino-German International Research Training Group AMAIZE-P (DFG GRK 2366/1) since October 2018, with the topic of „Adaptation of maize-based food-feed-energy systems to limited phosphate resources“ at the University of Hohenheim (Stuttgart) in cooperation with the China Agricultural University (Beijing).

Starting on: 01.10.2021
Application deadline: 15.05.2021
