Logo Logo
The Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research (UFZ) with its 1,100 employees has gained an excellent reputation as an international competence centre for environmental sciences. We are part of the largest scientific organisation in Germany, the Helmholtz association. Our mission: Our research seeks to find a balance between social development and the long-term protection of our natural resources.

The UFZ has obtained a prominent position within the field of near-natural water treatment technologies such as constructed wetlands. The availability of various laboratory-and pilot-scale units at the UFZ fosters respective research & development and enables to assess the feasibility of eco-technological treatment systems for future application.
The Department of Environmental Biotechnology is inviting applications for a

Scientist - Near-natural (waste) water
treatment technologies (m/f)

to commence in January 2017, working time: 100% (39 hours per week), initially limited to 3 years (extension to permanent employment possible).

Your tasks:
In light of the upcoming restructuring of municipal wastewater treatment processes and water cycles, ample career opportunities exist for a young ambitious biotechnologist/environmental engineer, for example:
  • readjustment of wastewater treatment systems to provide more particulate matter of waste water to biogas reactors, conceptual planning for immobilised biomass systems as a consequence of reduced carbon load in activated sludge treatment
  • particle elimination to reduce effluent loads of microbial pathogens (sanitation), antibiotic resistant bacteria, and transport vehicles for organic micropollutants, incl. advanced oxidation processes and bioelectrical approaches
  • employing riparian strips adjacent to agricultural fields for attenuation of pesticide, nutrients, SOM and DOM emission into surface waters
  • knowledge transfer of treatment processes in and operation of constructed wetlands to urban improvements such as green roofs, green walls, vertical culturing, urban farming and gardening
You should be interested in developing your ideas and expertise in the field of technical use of microbial processes in order to take over a respective working group and to gain qualification for academic tenure track positions (habilitation). A major task will include the coordination of the activities with UFZ's Centre for Environmental Biotechnology (UBZ).
Your profile:
  • PhD in biotechnology, environmental engineering, or related field
  • Strong interest in complex ecological systems
  • Knowledge about the system rhiziosphere - water- soil/sediment
  • Experience in chemical and isotope analysis, and computational data management
  • Proven record of third-party funding
  • An open-minded, organized team player with excellent communication skills
  • Excellent written and spoken English skills (German would be of advantage)
We offer:
  • Excellent technical facilities which are without parallel
  • The freedom you need to bridge the difficult gap between basic research and close to being ready for application
  • Work in inter-disciplinary, multinational teams and excellent links with national and international research networks
  • A vibrant region with a high quality of life and a wide cultural offering for a balance between family and professional life
  • Interesting career opportunities and an extensive range of training and further education courses
  • Remuneration up to the 13 TVöD public-sector pay grade including attractive public-sector social security benefits
