At the Department of Biology, SDU we are looking for two PhD students to join our Villum-funded centre on biological and environmental evolution. One PhD student will explore the dynamics of redox-sensitive trace metal behaviour in modern sediment environments, with a key focus on the processes involved in redox transformation and trace-metal sequestration. Another PhD student will explore the impact of environmental oxygen concentrations on the physiology of oxygen-producing phototrophic organisms. The work has relevance for both the understanding of the relationship between the evolution of oxygen-producing organisms through time, as well as the adaptation of phototrophs to the spread of hypoxia in the oceans today.
Deadline: 15 May 2019.
