Research associates

The following research associates are in particularly close cooperation and regular exchange with our group.

Sabine Fiedler, University of Mainz, Mainz, Germany
Ulrich Pöschl, Max Planck Institute for Chemistry, Mainz, Germany
Philipp Porada, University of Hamburg, Germany
Emilio Rodríguez-Caballero, University of Almeria, Almeria, Spain

We have multiple collaborations with other scientists around the world, but such a list would be difficult to maintain. Thus, this is just a list of particularly close cooperations existing over many years already.

Possibility to write a master thesis

Interdisciplinary master's thesis on soil amendments that support carbon storage in soil

We are currently offering a very interdisciplinary and innovative master thesis in which soil amendments from renewable resources (biomass) will be produced and tested. The project includes chemical and biological aspects and is supervised in both disciplines. We are looking forward to being contacted by interested, motivated students. Prof. Dr. Bettina Weber, Department of Biology (bettina.weber@uni-graz.at) and Prof. Dr. Katalin Barta Weissert, Department of Chemistry (katalin.barta@uni-graz.at).
