Aqualink is an interdisciplinary doctoral training and research programme focusing on aquatic boundaries and linkages in a changing environment. Over a 3-year period, doctoral candidates will receive training that aims at facilitating completion of research leading to an original doctoral thesis and high-quality publications in the scientific literature. Two Leibniz institutes (Leibniz Institute of Freshwater Ecology and Inland Fisheries, IGB; Leibniz Centre of Agricultural Landscape Research, ZALF) will cooperate with three international partners (University of Aberdeen, Scotland; Swiss Federal Institute of Aquatic Science and Technology, Eawag; University of Southern Denmark) to create a stimulating research environment, facilitate international mobility, and provide support structures and assistance, all aimed at promoting the candidates’ skill set required for successful science.
Fluency in English is required. IGB is devoted to increasing the proportion of women in science and particularly encourages female scientists to apply. Disabled persons with equal qualification will be favoured.
