part-time employ­ment may be pos­sible

The Chair of Hydro­geo­logy of the Insti­tute of Applied Geosciences invest­ig­ates the com­plex beha­viour of dis­solved con­stitu­ents and microor­gan­isms in the envir­on­ment and deals with the man­age­ment of water resources in hydro­lo­gic­ally sens­it­ive regions. Selec­ted can­did­ate shall be integ­rated into a young inter­dis­cip­lin­ary research group.
