Open Positions



  • We are currently looking for a PostDoc in Global Ecosystem Modelling to join our team and support the modelling efforts to better understand nutrient cycling and N2O feedbacks at global scales.
  • For the ITMS (integrated GHG monitoring system) project we have three positions:
all related to independently estimating regional GHG fluxes based on atmospheric observations, and improving the methodology. Please contact Christoph Gerbig for details.


As the department is growing, there will be more opportunities in the near future. If interested, please get in touch with Sönke Zaehle directly.


PhD students


The department is always interested in recruiting highly motivated PhD students. Applications could be directed to the whole department or specifically to the research group leaders.

We also highly recommend to apply to the International Max Planck Research School for Global Biogeochemical Cycles (IMPRS-gBGC) where we are strongly involved.
