Environmental Microbiology

Open Positions

We welcome applications from skilled and motivated PhD and Postdoctoral candidates. Details are provided under “open positions”. If you are interested, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us 

The Environmental Microbiology group was established in November 1991 and employs approximately a dozen senior scientists, postdoctoral fellows and Ph.D. students. Our faculty and research staff provide versatile professional backgrounds in areas such as microbiology, molecular biology and environmental sciences. Our research is focused within four main clusters: Pioneer sites, Wetlands, Aquifers and Soil vadose zones.


Research projects focus on biological structures and functions, however, chemical and physical factors are equally considered, with a strong emphasis on the quantification of the processes.


The teaching program includes lectures, laboratory and field courses as well as excursions.
