Close collaboration with technical oriented engineering research groups within the research unit and their support with molecular biological expertise
Application and adaptation of molecular methods (e.g. qPCR in various modifications and setups; gen sequencing in various sequencing depths, biostatistics, FISH) to answer scientific and technical research questions related to wastewater treatment and sanitary engineering in general.
Development of a fundamental knowledge of molecular mechanisms and microbial processes in the frame of sanitary engineering and identification of potential usability in technical solutions.
Involvement in general administrative tasks of the research unit
Management of a research group
Engagement in university boards
