3 year-doctoral research position (PhD student, 65% EG 13 TV-L) (f/m/d)

This project will focus on the flood-mediated effects of stressors such as aquatic micropollutants and invasive species on terrestrial recipient communities. The work involves a review of meta-ecosystem models, and the subsequent development of a model, which will include the above-mentioned stressors. The model should consider biogeochemical cycles, soil physical properties, ecosystem functions, and riparian bottom-up plant-herbivore trophic interactions. Once empirical data are available, the model will be used to test the hypothesis that environmental stressors destabilize the dynamics of the riparian trophic system via bottom-up effects.
