1 Junior Research Group Leader (100%) (TV-L E14)
The successful candidate will be employed at the University of Bonn. The position is limited to 5 years with the option for permanent employment.
Each group comes with two funded PhD positions, easy access to laboratory and field experiments, and the possibility for
financial support from the Cluster. The task of the Junior Research Group Leader is to design the research profile of their group and build
up an independent and internationally visible research group. The research group will be expected to make central contributions to at least
one of the six core projects (CPs) of the Cluster, preferably supporting CP 6:
4D Crop Reconstruction (CP 1)
Relevance Detection of Crop Features (CP 2)
The Soil-Root Zone (CP 3)
Autonomous In-Field Intervention (CP 4)
New Field Arrangements (CP 5)

footprint of agricultural production. In order to achieve this, Bonn University and the Forschungszentrum Jülich adopts a technology-driven
approach characterized by the integration of robotics, digitalization, and machine learning on one hand, and modern phenotyping,
modeling, and crop production on the other. For more information about the Cluster and the core projects, visit the official website:
