Institute for Biodiversity and Ecosystem Dynamics

Susanne Wilken appointed as Assistant professor at IBED

31 January 2017

Dr. Susanne Wilken accepted the Assistant Professorship job offer in the new department of Freshwater and Marine Science / Ecology at IBED. Susanne is currently a Marie Curie postdoctoral fellow at the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI) in California and the Institute of Marine Sciences (ICM-CSIC) in Barcelona. She will start her new position at IBED in April 2017. Susanne’s research focusses on the ecology and evolution of mixotrophic organisms that combine a photosynthetic lifestyle with a heterotrophic nutrition. Such a mixed nutrition is widespread among marine and freshwater phytoplankton, yet its implications for food web processes and biogeochemical cycles are poorly understood.
