Workshop "Frontiers in Geobiology" announcement:
Within the framework of the DFG Research Unit FOR571 "Geobiology" we
invite applications to attend the workshop "Frontiers in Geobiology"
on 13/14 October 2007 hosted by the Department of Geobiology at the
Geoscience Center of the Georg-August-Universität in Goettingen
This workshop intends to bring together early career researchers from
the fields of geobiology, geomicrobiology, animal and plant
paleobiology, biogeochemistry, molecular phylogenetics,
phylogenomics, evolutionary developmental biology, et al., to
indentify and discuss emerging issues in Geobiology, i.e. research at
the interface between geo-and biosciences.
Selection of participants will be competetive, but all travel costs,
including accomodation and food, will be covered according to German
Participation is limited to early career researchers, preference will
be given to applications from Post-Docs within about 2-4 years after

Two-page applications (maximum) should be submitted by email (PDF
only) to [log in to unmask] until 15. September 2007.
The subject line of the email is required to include the keywords
"Workshop Frontiers in Geobiology" and the email body should include
a brief cover letter of motivation.
Please comply with the following format for your two-page PDF
1) Short CV including a maximum of 5 best career publications (one page)
2) Statement of past and present achievements; Perspective for future
In the latter part you should identify emerging issues in
geobiological research and how you would contribute methodologically
and intellectually to address these consequential issues of broad

spirit, we strongly invite women to apply. Equally qualified
handicapped applicants will be given preference.
We look forward to your participation
