Leib­niz-Zen­trum für Agrar­land­schafts­for­schung e.V. - HR

The mis­sion of the Leib­niz Centre for Agri­cul­tural Land­scape Research (ZALF) as a nation­ally and inter­na­tion­ally act­ive research insti­tute is to deliver solu­tions for an eco­lo­gic­ally, eco­nom­ic­ally and socially sus­tain­able agri­cul­ture – together with soci­ety. ZALF is a mem­ber of the Leib­niz Asso­ci­ation and is loc­ated in Müncheberg (approx. 35 minutes by regional train from Ber­lin-Lichten­berg). It also main­tains a research sta­tion with fur­ther loc­a­tions in Dede­low and Pau­lin­enaue.

Postdoc­toral researcher (f/m/d)
for in-situ stable iso­tope ana­lysis

We are offer­ing a full time pos­i­tion tem­por­ar­ily lim­ited for 36 months at our loc­a­tion in Müncheberg as Postdoc­toral researcher (f/m/d)

Working field:

The pro­ject “Stable Iso­tope and AI sup­por­ted model devel­op­ment for high fre­quency, cross scale water par­ti­tion­ing” (ISO-SCALE) stud­ies the tem­poral dynam­ics and spa­tial vari­ab­il­ity in eco­sys­tem evapo­tran­spir­a­tion, soil evap­or­a­tion, plant tran­spir­a­tion, soil water dis­tri­bu­tion and root water uptake. Within that pro­ject Work Pack­age 1 main goal is to assess small scale spa­tio-tem­poral het­ero­gen­eit­ies of water flow along the Soil plant atmo­sphere inter­faces, includ­ing spa­tio-tem­poral plas­ti­city in root water uptake pro­files and small scale (e.g. single plant) tran­spir­a­tion fluxes, by devel­op­ing a novel integ­rat­ive, con­tinu­ous, auto­mated, in-situ stable water iso­tope mon­it­or­ing sys­tem.

  • invest­ig­ate small scale spa­tio-tem­poral dynam­ics of pre­cip­it­a­tion and soil water by using in-situ stable water iso­tope tech­niques
  • invest­ig­ate small scale spa­tio-tem­poral dynam­ics of plant water fluxes, pro­ductiv­ity and phen­o­lo­gical devel­op­ment and their iso­topic sig­na­tures (focus on gas exchange and in-situ stable iso­tope sens­ing)
  • pro­ject coordin­a­tion
  • field work at the pro­ject field site in Göt­tin­gen
  • co-coordin­a­tion of phd-stu­dents


  • Stud­ies (Dip­loma, Mas­ter) in envir­on­mental sci­ences, bio­logy, hydro­logy, or geosciences
  • suc­cess­ful dis­ser­ta­tion (Phd) in envir­on­mental sci­ences, bio­logy, hydro­logy, or geosciences
  • exper­i­ence in field work
  • (basic) exper­i­ence in stable iso­tope ana­lysis, gas-exchange and sensor auto­mat­isa­tion
  • pro­gram­ming exper­i­ence, pref­er­en­tially in Python or R
  • inde­pend­ent and well-organ­ized work style and time man­age­ment
  • good com­mand of Eng­lish (writ­ten and spoken)

What we offer:

  • an inter­dis­cip­lin­ary work­ing envir­on­ment that encour­ages inde­pend­ence and self-reli­ance
  • clas­si­fic­a­tion accord­ing to the col­lect­ive agree­ment of the fed­eral states (TV-L) up to 13 (includ­ing spe­cial annual pay­ment)
  • a col­legial and open-minded work­ing atmo­sphere in a dynamic research insti­tu­tion
  • sup­port for work-life bal­ance cer­ti­fied by beru­fund­fam­ilie audit
  • job ticket
