Subproject Z1: Coordination (1 Technical Assistant position)
Principle Investigators: Gerd Gleixner, Max Planck Institute for Biogeochemistry, Jena, Germany
Summary: In the Jena Experiment, the influence of biodiversity on element cycling is investigated. For the long-term observation of soil characteristics, we will quantify carbon and nitrogen concentrations in the bulk soil and in the soil solution. Resulting long-term datasets will allow analyses of links between carbon, nutrient, and water dynamics within and beyond the Jena Experiment. We are looking for a technical assistant to organize and carry out soil, water and gas sampling, to process samples in the laboratory, as well as for quality control and provision of the measurement data for further scientific analysis.
