The overall mission of the Research Training Group (RTG) is to fill existing knowledge gaps on biota-mediated effects on estuarine C cycling under current conditions and with respect to global change scenarios. Embedded into the inspiring academic environment of Universität Hamburg, the RTG provides Doctoral and Postdoctoral Researchers an outstanding platform for their career development. The RTG has been established by an interdisciplinary group of 15 Principal Researchers with scientific backgrounds ranging from terrestrial and marine ecology, via geoscience to microbiology and molecular plant and animal biology.
The RTG is funded by the German Research Foundation (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft, DFG) and will initially run for 4.5 years (10/2020 until 4/2025).
Beside involving Principal Researchers from
- Universität Hamburg and
- the Leibniz-Institute of Freshwater Ecology and Inland Fisheries,
