Student (m/f/d) | B.Sc. project - Elemental analysis of symbiotic bark and ambrosia beetle fungi

Image
  We are currently looking for a motivated student (f/m/d) for a B.Sc. project at the  Max Planck Institute for Chemical Ecology  in Jena (Germany). In this project, the student will work with symbiotic filamentous fungi of bark and ambrosia beetles under laboratory conditions. The student will explore and describe the total elemental composition of fungal mycelium and compare it with other non-insect associated beetles as well as with competitive and wood-degrading fungi. Both bark and ambrosia beetles, which typically colonize rather nutrient-poor woody substrates (like phloem or xylem of weakened trees), are associated with a broad range of microbes such as filamentous fungi, bacteria, and yeasts. To date, only little is known about the role of these microbes and how they support the survival of their beetle hosts. Especially some of the associated filamentous fungi are believed to be of high nutritional value for the beetles, and thus ensure the successful development of beetles

Student Research Assistant

  The  Max Planck Institutes for Biophysical Chemistry  and  Experimental Medicine  in Göttingen are internationally leading research institutes of exceptional scientific breadth, which will merge in 2022 to become the largest institute of the Max Planck Society. The new institute will comprise more than 40 research groups and employ around 1,000 people from over 50 nations. The emeritus group  Genes and Behavior  (Gregor Eichele) and the research group  Quantitative and Computational Biology  (Dr. Johannes Söding) are inviting applications for a Student research Assistant (f/m/d) Recent evidence has indicated that the phenomenon of diel vertical migration (DVM) is influenced by the molecular circadian clock. However, characterizations of the clock in organisms that undergo DVM are scant. Preliminary evidence indicates the existence of a circadian clock in two marine copepods that undergo DVM to different degrees-- Acartia clausii  and  Acartia tonsa . We are interested in establish

Scientific assistant (m/f/d) (master's student)

  What if robotic systems could interact with the world with the same dexterity as humans do? Haptic sensing technologies enable robots to sense and react to their environment through physical contact, which can complement visual and spatial information to produce complex behaviors. Led by Christoph Keplinger, the MPI-IS Robotic Materials Department aims to investigate innovative soft sensing technologies for robotic manipulation tasks. Your profile We are looking for talented students who are pursuing a Master of Science in materials science, mechanical engineering, chemical engineering, mechatronics, engineering cybernetics, electrical engineering or related fields to support our research as student assistants. Role: Scientific assistant (master's student) (m/f/d) Volume of employment: Max. 83 hours per month Starting date: As soon as possible Applicants should be highly motivation, be pursuing a master’s degree, be currently enrolled in a German university, have strong academ

STUDENT ASSISTENT BEAMLINE CONTROL (F/M/D)

Image
  We are looking for someone to support our team in setting new standards in the domain of motion control at the HZB. Across the institute - from small laboratories to the 300 meter long electron storage ring BESSY II - thousands of motors drive a variety of mechanical setups for distances of several meters and with nanometric precision. Different legacy control systems have served our demands well, for the past 20 to 30 years; but now it is time to move on to a new technology uniting our requirements. You will work together with our team of engineers and physicists, developing and running test benches and mock-ups, to emulate these requirements. Afterwards these mock-ups will be used to evaluate multiple motion controllers and select one which fulfils our requirements best. Your tasks Analysing and understanding existing motion control applications Supporting the design, construction and assembly phases of mock-ups and test benches Operating and improving mock-ups and test benches

Student (f/m/d) (computer science /software engineering)

  The Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (HZB) is operating a variety of laboratories to research materials and energy for a sustainable future. Furthermore, the HZB is running the electron storage ring BESSY II with an extensive user service program. As sample environment group of the HZB, we develop and run experimental setups for beamline and laboratory based experiments. Our main task is the control of the physical parameters at the sample position like temperature, magnetic or electric field or pressure. Additionally, we support researches at the HZB by developing custom experimental setups. Now, we are looking for you as a student assistant to help us with the programming of the control software for the different experimental setups. Your tasks Support the development of our control software (Delphi/LabView) for experimental setups at beamlines and in physics laboratories Documentation of the software Familiarizing yourself with an extensive source code for further development of our so

  Advertising division:  IBG-3 - Agrosphere Reference number:  2021M-041, soil science, chemistry, plant science Student Assistant - 19 hours per week: Soil as a sustainable resource (BonaRes initiative), Optimization of agricultural nutrient use efficiency (RhizoWheat Projekt). The Institute of Biological and Geosciences - Agrosphere (IBG-3) investigates hydrological and biogeochemical processes in terrestrial systems using a combination of experiments, modeling and innovative observation techniques. Our research contributes to the sustainable and resource-efficient use of soil and water and to the quantification of the effects of climate and land use changes on terrestrial ecosystems. The Project: We investigate the underlying rhizospere processes governing wheat yield decline in crop rotations. Increasing portions of wheat in crop rotations lead to build up of soil-borne pathogens leading to root sensecence and yield decline. With a combination of root imaging and isotopic technique
