We are looking to recruit a
Student Assistant - Collecting and analysing crop science data to quantify root development - (max. 19 hrs./week)
At the Institute of Bio- and Geosciences – Agrosphere (IBG-3) we conduct research to improve our understanding of hydrological and biogeochemical processes in terrestrial systems. A combination of experiments, modelling, and innovative observation technologies is used to bridge the gap between model, process, and management scale. Our research contributes to the sustainable and resource- conserving use of soils and water and to the quantification of the effect of climate and land use change on terrestrial ecosystems. Quantifying the processes in the soil-plant-zone is necessary to obtain information on shoot and root growth as well as water and nutrient uptake. This helps to extend the knowledge about plant behaviour, the various environmental conditions, improve agricultural management and to conserve resources. To obtain non-invasive crop data we continouosly perform field and greenhouse experiments.
