PhD candidate with the working title:
Habitat preference of biting midges (Ceratopogonidae) as vectors for Schmallenberg-Virus

Supervisor ZALF: Dr. rer. nat. Doreen Walther
Supervisor University/University of Applied Sciences: PD Dr. rer. nat. Helge Kampen (Friedrich-Loeffler-Institut, Bundesforschungsinstitut für Tiergesundheit, Greifswald-Insel Riems)


  • Medical entomology
  • Vector ecology
  • Taxonomy of ceratopogonids


  • Studies on the systematics, bionomics, phenology and morphology of ceratopogonids using classical morphological and genetic techniques
  • Ecological studies in the field on endemic ceratopogonid species with special reference to their seasonal and geographic occurrence and their breeding habitat preferences
  • Epidemiological studies on the occurrence of pathogens of veterinary relevance (especially Schmallenberg virus) associated with hematophagous Ceratopogonidae using molecular biological detection methods (PCR, DNA sequencing)
  • Participation in the establishment of a database for the collection of data on the German ceratopogonids, including seasonal and geographic occurrence, collection site characteristics, pathogen detection, vector competence etc. with the aim of preparing GIS-based distribution maps of the midge species occurring in Germany
