We are looking to recruit a
PhD Position - FAIR Data for Field Phenotyping - Developing a Data Model for Diverse Field Phenotyping Data
Would you like to contribute to solutions to climate change and resource scarcity? Work with us at the Institute of Bio- and Geosciences - Plant Sciences (IBG-2). We develop novel bioeconomy concepts for the intensification and sustainability of plant production as well as the use of the produced biomass in integrated biorefinery processes. The IBG-2 has a globally leading position in plant phenotyping, focusing on dynamic plant-environment interaction combined with technology development, engineering, digitization and bioinformatics. One key aspect of the research at the IBG-2 targets alternative biomass, cell wall and secondary metabolite biochemistry and its interaction with biomass conversion techniques in integrated biorefinery processes. Through our work we target the development of plants and processes for future climate and production conditions, while reducing the environmental footprint. This PhD project is embedded in the DFG project FAIRAgro (www.fairagro.net).
