For PhDs and PostDocs

We are a dynamic and continuously growing working group situated at the leading Young University in Germany (nature index). Especially in the field of environmental and ecological sciences, the BayCEER  offers a vibrant and highly interdisciplinary research environment. Our group frequently has PhD or Postdoc positions to fill, which will usually be advertised below.

In addition, if there is no suitable opening but you are still interested to work with us, you are welcome to contact Prof. Lueders (tillmann.lueders@uni-bayreuth.de) to discuss opportunities to apply for external funding of your own incoming fellowship or stipend. We strongly encourage excellent candidates to get in contact with us with a brief project outline and your CV for further discussion. We can then assist you to develop a joint research proposal and to apply for your own fellowship, also in figuring out which fellowship programme you may be eligible for. If you already have a funding scheme in mind, please indicate the call information, deadline, etc.
