Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­si­tät Dres­den - Faculty of Envi­ron­men­tal Sci­en­ces, Depart­ment of Hydro Sci­en­ces, Insti­tute of Hydro­bio­logy, Chair of Lim­no­logy

The TU Dres­den is one of ele­ven Ger­man uni­ver­si­ties that were iden­ti­fied as an “excel­lence uni­ver­sity”. TUD has about 36.500 stu­dents and almost 5319 employees, 507 pro­fes­sors among them, and, thus, is the lar­gest uni­ver­sity in Sax­ony, today.

Having been com­mit­ted to sci­en­ces and the engi­nee­ring before the reuni­fi­ca­tion of Ger­many, TU Dres­den now is a multi-disci­pline uni­ver­sity, also offe­ring huma­nities and social sci­en­ces as well as medi­cine.

Rese­arch Asso­ciate in Micro­bio­logy

(sub­ject to per­so­nal qua­li­fi­ca­tion employees are remu­ne­ra­ted accord­ing to salary group E 13 TV-L)
At the Depart­ment of Hydro Sci­en­ces, Insti­tute of Hydro­bio­logy the Chair of Lim­no­logy offers, sub­ject to resour­ces being avail­able, wit­hin the frame­work of a BMBF pro­ject a fixed-term pro­ject posi­tion. It starts at the ear­liest pos­si­ble date and is initi­ally limi­ted until the end of the pro­ject, the 31.01.2023. The period of employ­ment is gover­ned by § 2 (2) Fixed Term Rese­arch Con­tracts Act (Wis­sen­schafts­zeit­ver­trags­ge­setz - WissZeitVG).

Work­ing field:

The pro­ject focu­ses on the ques­tion of bio­di­ver­sity against the dis­tri­bu­tion of anti­bio­tic resis­tance in the envi­ron­ment. The con­nec­tion bet­ween the bio­di­ver­sity and anti­bio­tic resisted genes and bac­te­ria with influ­en­ces on the health of human, ani­mal and envi­ron­ment needs to ana­lyse. It is to deter­mine if urba­ni­sa­tion, inten­si­fied agri­cul­ture and the glo­bal war­ming affects the deve­lop­ment of anti­bio­tic resis­tan­ces. The aim is to prove if bio­lo­gi­cal diver­sity is an eco­lo­gi­cal bar­rier for the sprea­ding of anti­bio­tic resis­tan­ces.


uni­ver­sity degree and PhD in bio­logy, hydro­logy, medi­cine or simi­lar fields. The can­di­date should be well acquain­ted with mole­cu­lar and micro­bio­lo­gi­cal tech­ni­ques, in par­ti­cu­lar with real­time PCR, digi­tal PCR, plas­mid ana­ly­sis and gene­tic modi­fi­ca­ti­ons of micro­or­ga­nisms; strong publi­ca­tion record; moti­va­tion to per­form inde­pen­dent rese­arch and the abi­lity to coor­di­nate the sci­en­ti­fic efforts wit­hin the pro­ject with little exter­nal super­vi­sion; abi­lity to think inno­va­tively and to work as an active mem­ber of a team; very good com­mand of Ger­man and Eng­lish for publi­shing high-qua­lity rese­arch. Fami­lia­rity with model­ling approa­ches capa­bi­li­ties would be a great plus.
