Faculty of Science – Institute for Biodiversity and Ecosystem Dynamics

The Institute for Biodiversity and Ecosystem Dynamics (IBED) is one of the eight research institutes of the Faculty of Science at the University of Amsterdam. IBED was founded in 2000 by merging research groups with expertise in ecology, physical geography, environmental microbiology and environmental chemistry. The research at IBED aims to unravel how ecosystems function in all their complexity, and how they change due to natural processes and human activities. At its core lies an integrated systems approach to study biodiversity, ecosystems and the environment. IBED adopts this systems approach to ecosystems, addressing abiotic (soil and water quality) and biotic factors (presence, population dynamics and functioning of plants, animals, microbes), and the interplay between these ecosystem components. The IBED vision includes that research encompasses experimental and theoretical approaches at a wide variety of temporal and spatial scales, i.e. from microbes and individual behaviour to patterns and processes occurring at landscape scale. IBED offers advanced and up-to-date research facilities, such as a greenhouse, growth chambers, an electrophysiological lab, a molecular lab, an analytical chemistry lab, a soil erosion lab, a GIS studio, and high-performance computing facilities.

IBED is in search of a new full professor for the field of Earth Surface Science.

We are looking for a scientist who has the ambition to lead a diverse research group. Someone who inspires the ESS team, represents the group and increases the international academic visibility of EES. Someone who has a talent for teaching and a vision on university teaching and research.
We also welcome a candidate who brings in new approaches, research skills or model systems.
